Mad Girl is Ready to Eat New Orleans!

Next week starts my summer escapade around the country. First stop, New Orleans! So many places to indulge, so little time. The Joint, Commander’s Palace, Domilise, Cochon and a few others are on the long laundry list of “must try” so we’ll see where I end up! I know Cochon Butcher and Café du Monde are two return stops I will make during my 2 night/3 day visit.  You just can’t say no to a delectable Pork Belly sandwich with pickled cucumber and mint from Cochon Butcher, nor can you start the day without Café du Monde’s extraordinary café au lait and beignets. I am soooo drooling right now.

Getting ready to eat, shop, and party N’awlins style! Adding more restaurant recommendations to Field Trip app. Fabulous!

Mad Girl Eats Café Du Monde

Café Du Monde, 800 Decatur St, New Orleans, LA.

Café Du Monde is a glorious, well-known institution in the French Quarter, bringing joy since 1862. It is a ‘must’ when visiting New Orleans. Open 24 hours a day, anytime is a great time for a cup of café au lait and an order of beignets.

The café au lait is made with half coffee (a French heritage coffee and chicory blend) and half dreamy creamy hot milk. One order of beignets gives you 3 warm angelic pillows of fried heaven, covered in powdered sugar. Tende,r flaky, golden goodness pairs perfectly with café au lait. Sitting indoors or out in the large covered patio, there is no better way to start your morning. If you’re lucky, there is live music to enjoy. Either way, you get tasty treats, great atmosphere, and happy people. Enjoy!

Tips: Beware not to inhale while taking a bite of your beignet. You’ll get powdered sugar filled lungs and a coughing fit on top of it….yeah, it happened to me. It’s also advisable not to wear black, as the sugar has a mind of its own…under the ceiling fans. Yes, that happened also. Live and learn, now I’m a pro!

5 out of 5 perfect powdered sugar smack-a-roos!

As seen on “Man v Food” and “Food Paradise” on The Travel Channel.
