The Original Po'Boy [On The Road: New Orleans]

One thing for sure I wanted try while in NOLA was a po'boy, the traditional subway style sandwich from Louisiana. Baguette style, crispy crust and soft centre, filled with anything you can imagine from meat to fried seafood. The place to go, no other than Domilise's, I heard about the place thanks to Mr Bourdain, in his episode of No Reservations in New Orleans, he goes there and tries a special sandwich that only the locals know about, and now also the millions of viewers that watched the show. 

The place is quite modest, a bit far from the city, I went using the street cars, took me a while to get there, I should have taken the car. Family run, in a corner on a desolated street, full of pictures and memorabilia, the staff will make you feel like you’re home, I think they are all family, extremely friendly, I got quite late, ate my sandwich had a beer, and called a taxi, the taxi took long time, they offer me a free beer, and the bartender even offer me a ride back to the city. 

Street car
I ordered the “secret” one, the one that no one knows, fried shrimp, Swiss cheese, and roast beef gravy, fully dressed, that means the tomato sauce, mayo, pickles and shreded lettuce, just awesome! Prepared front scratch in front of you, flavour is great, the spices of the tomato sauce, the powerful gravy, shrimp perfectly cooked, simple comfort food well executed.

Shrimp reminds me the Seinfeld episode “The Comeback” 

Reilly: So, George. You're proposing a snow tyre day at Yankee Stadium? 
George: Long as they don't throw them on the field. Help yourself to some shrimp, I brought enough for everybody 
McAdam: I have to say this, this proposal doesn't make a whole lot of sense 
George: Well, you never know. Let's see how many I can fit in my mouth 
Reilly: You know, George, the ocean called. They're running out of shrimp 
George: Oh yeah, Reilly? Well, the jerk store called, they're running out of you 
Reilly: What's the difference? You're their all-time best seller! 
George: Yeah? Well, I had sex with your wife 
McAdam: His wife is in a coma
