    Food: 9/10 Drinks: 8/10 Vibes: 4/10 Midwest Foodie: Yikes the price tag on this one! I was pretty blown away when I saw that the average entrée price was between $20 and $25. For Mexican food? Give me a break. We decided to split the steak fajitas a...

    Food: 9.5/10 Drinks: 10/10 Vibes: 9/10 Midwest Foodie: Exactly how the name sounds. Humble bagel found their niche and is the top spot for bagels in NOLA. Fresh baked bagels with a few options for spreads and add-ons, including eggs and lox. We had a...

    Food: 5/10 Drinks: N/A Vibes: 7/10 Midwest Foodie: I was so excited to eat here. Ethiopian food plus BYOB drew me in. I was really looking forward to eating injera, the traditional Ethiopian bread, but was really disappointed when we were served a di...

    Food: 8/10 Drinks: 4/10 Vibes: 6.5/10 Midwest Foodie: Had a really great time here and ate some tasty sushi. First off, one of the best happy hours in the city. About $6 a roll and we got a complimentary octopus ceviche for sitting at the sushi bar.

    Food: 10/10 Drinks: 8/10 Vibes: 7/10 Midwest Foodie: Ba Chi Canteen is the pork master of the crowded NOLA Vietnamese food scene. This place has pork belly spring rolls, bacos (Vietnamese tacos), and pork fecta vermicelli (that’s pork belly, BBQ p...
  • Creole CreameryFood: 8/10 Drinks: 10/10 Vibes: 9/10 Midwest Foodie: This is definitely the best ice cream shop in town. You might ask why I gave it only an 8/10? The answer is simply that New Orleans ice cream in general is good, not great. The Midwest is the home...

    on Jul 28, 2016 in Restaurants
    Food: 10/10 Drinks: 7/10 Vibes: 6/10 Midwest foodie: Lilly’s is a local staple for Vietnamese food. Fair prices and great food that doesn’t leave you feeling lethargic. I love their vermicelli bowls, highly recommend the grilled pork. They also h...
  • ShayaFood: 8/10 Drinks: 10/10 Vibes: 10/10 Midwest foodie: Let me be clear from the beginning about Shaya. This is not “my type” of restaurant: it has small plates with large price tags. That said, the food is really really tasty. We shared shipka pep...
  • Toast
    on Jul 27, 2016 in Cafes
    Food: 9/10 Drinks: 8/10 Vibes: 9/10 Midwest foodie: Name pretty much gives away what this place specializes in. Lots of scrumptious breakfast options, most involving toast (duhhhh). I got a Monte Cristo and it was the best I’ve ever had. Very impor...
