I had heard that New Orleans Style Seafood Po-Boys is a great spot for a po-boy – and it is. The food is good and the price is better than right.
A regular-sized shrimp po-boy was not only fresh and delicious it was much more than I could eat – and only $5.70. Its equivalent in the French Quarter is about 10 bucks. An extra large shrimp 32-inch sandwich is $13.95; a small, eight-inch version is $4.30. Po-boys here - shrimp, crab or meat varieties - are a yummy bargain. They also serve spaghetti and meatballs (!) and seafood platters.
A Vietnamese-owned establishment, New Orleans Po-Boy also serves a wide variety of Vietnamese dishes from egg rolls to noodle or rice dishes with beef, pork or chicken. I’ll try some of these on my next visit. This is a very casual eatery with counter service and plenty of take out business, though the dining room is spacious. Vietnamese tea service sets are placed at many of the tables for tea drinkers and they sell other traditional drinks such as pickled lemon or preserved plum soda. No alcohol but ask if one can bring a bottle for dinner. ©2010 Jane Feehan, All rights reserved.
