Crispy Fried Catfish with Remoulade ($9)
Crispy Fried Catfish with Remoulade ($9)
Giant pieces of fried and tender catfish. The crisp of the batter, the tomatoes and the soft interior of the bread create a great combination of textures. Simple, unassuming, but a great example of the classic New Orleans sandwich.
Hot Roast Beef with Debris Gravy ($7.5)
Hot Roast Beef with Debris Gravy ($7.5)
If you're not familiar with debris gravy, it's made after simmering a cut of beef in seasoned beef stock, then taking that beef, shredding it, and sticking it back in the pot. You then take that beef in beef madness and pour it over more beef. That's what you're seeing with the roast beef po boy. Beef on beef on beef, and it's as delicious as it sounds.
Gulf Shrimp Fried with Remoulade ($10)
