Yes, I said sweet tea in New Orleans. Also, sticking to "what you know" was done because I have visited the city of New Orleans more than once and disliked their food every single time.



Hot Doug's in Chicago is a tourist trap and overpriced. Did you go there just because you saw the restaurant being advertised on the Travel Channel?
You could've said that you weren't impressed by New Orleans without suggesting the city is nothing more than cheap, fried Cajun food. Fact is, NO is home to some of the greatest French restaurants in the nation, world renowned chefs, and fine wines.

You lost credibility with your jambalaya and sweet tea comment

Okay, you guess, then. Everyone's not into Texas style barbecue or culture. Some of us prefer southern style, and for my money its east Texas hands down

Where did I state the food was cheap?

HAHA, New Orleans is not even top 5 in this country for dining. Where is their Michelin Guide? I believe the only five cities to have Michelin Guides were Los Angeles, San Francisco, New York, Chicago and Las Vegas.

Of course they do but that dude was acting like that's all that city is about. People who truly know what they're saying know better

Depending on who you talk to, NO may or may not be a top 5, but its absolutely top 10.

Well, most trolls don't. Spewing out baseless opinions supported by no real facts is your forte

Los Angeles is delicious and affordable like virtually no other city.

The San Gabriel Valley is especially amazing in bringing the current and past culinary trends of East and Southeast Asia into the states.
