New orleans is a town filled with great people, great music, and even better food. It is such a great town to eat your way through. One of the more popular dishes to eat in New Orleans is the Po-Boy Sandwich. There are many po-boys to choose from along with many place to choose from to get your po-boy. The southerner and her family joined me at one of the more famous restaurants for po-boys at Mother’s. If you have never been make sure you get their on a week day when the line may not be out the door and down the street. I have been to New Orleans a few times and I love a good Oyster Po-Boy. Mother’s does it right as seen above. There is so many Oysters falling out of the sandwich mixed with a great sauce to make it a great sandwich. I don’t even like raw oysters but when fried and put between two pieces of bread, I can’t say no.
Since someone else was getting the Oyster Po-Boy I wanted to get something different. I usually go for some sort of shellfish Po-Boy but this time I when with the Famous Ferdi Special. This sandwich is Mother’s baked ham, roast beef, debris and gravy, see below. This was a great mixture of meats and the gravy gave the meats the perfect moisture and taste.
We also could not resist a Shrimp Po-Boy. I’m kind of known for making sure everyone in the party orders something different so we can all have a try. I just think that is the best way to get the real feel of the food at a restaurant and everyone is satisfied. When I dine alone it’s tough for me. I want to order so many things.
