Our tour guide was fabulous. The tour was extremely informative!!!! Highly recommend.
This tour offers a unique look into Creole and Cajun classics and the new, innovative direction of local New Orleans cuisine. You'll start the tour with Cajun history told through sausage in flavors like alligator, crawfish, duck, and delish pork. Next, taste the Haitian influence on New Orleans in a historic food hall, and enjoy a German-New Orleans fusion sandwich on the Mississippi River (a nod to this neighborhood's history). As a bonus stop, finish with a secret popsicle pop-up beloved by locals (seasonal dependent). There is also a local BBQ, a po-boy place, and a courtyard microbrewery in the neighborhood that can be substituted for any of the other mentioned stops. The private tour option is great for small groups visiting for bachelorette/bachelor parties or birthdays.
