Be’same is a latin tapas restaurant.  This was a great place to dine with my new friend.  Our visit was a late night eat, after a full day or exploring New Orleans and for me, was worth the wait.  I have to admit, I know that pork is not considered the healthiest meat; however, it’s still one of my favorites.  There were several interesting options and I decided on  Cochinita

Willa Jean

Well you know, a girl’s gotta brunch! You know when there is a line, it must be good.  And…I visited Willa Jean twice. Once for brunch and also my last travel day, where I purchased a cappuccino and a pastry to-go.  Brunch favorites there included:

Hangover bowl

short rib + cheesy grits + onion + garlic + potatoes + egg 

Avocado toast

And because I am such a foodie, I had to also show you my friend’s breakfast. Not your usual Avocado Toast


fresh cheese + tomato + pickle serrano + shallot + arugula + sunflower everything spice+poached egg

 I was invited to dinner with new friends I met through a women’s travel community called Wanderful.  Upon entering Mulate’s, it was a busy place with adequate seating and bar areas.  It was a very busy Friday night not to mention live music.

BBQ Shrimp

Bread Pudding

Mulate’s did not disappoint with “Famous bread pudding  with Rum sauce“.  If you are counting calories — it’s okay,  this is  certainly a reason to splurge and treat yourself.  And if you aren’t able to travel to New Orleans and want to try it, check out the link below for the recipe:
