Strolling through the last three RB&R Days since I haven’t been able to get on here and jot my thoughts. We can start on RB&R Day 134 when I wound up in LaPlace.
About 34 minutes away from where I’m at in New Orleans, LaPlace is known for the Port of South Louisiana and Andouille sausage. It’s actually the official Andouille Capital of the World. Anyways, I went to Wayne Jacob’s Smokehouse. A mfer named Wayne Jacobs sounds like he can smoke some shit up. Located next to a trailer park. It was like getting dropped in the middle of nowhere and looking for red beans.
Too much white space on the plate, need to fill them holes in. Other than that, the flavor was there in these red beans. They using them special LaPlace meats to jazz shit up. I picked up some cracklin and jerky, wasn’t a huge fan of either but the shit was different. Overall, these folks got some fantastic meats and are slinging the piss out Andouille sausage. I don’t have a problem approving this place if they fill that white space on plate.
Wayne Jacob’s – HTM Approved
RB&R Day 135
Broad & Banks got the call. Here is a place I went to early in my journey when nobody was really watching and covid was in full action. I plan on re-doing some of these places to display the entire experience instead of what I did then which was do it in my studio.
Walking in Broad & Banks is one of the most comfortable lunch feelings you’ll obtain. A row of hot n ready selections and this time I went with the Soft Shell Crab. Do I regret it? Kinda, because they got some fire ass fried chicken and pork chops.
However, it was the first time ever a soft shell appeared on RB&R Day. Even though this wasn’t better than the first time I went, it is still a top notch lunch experience.
You gonna see a ton of characters like you walking around in a game of GTA. Even secured a grill while I was out there.
Beer – Abita Purple Haze
Broad & Banks – HTM Approved
RB&R Day 136
The latest Monday, I took my ass to Frank’s on Decatur after getting lured in by what seemed like a sincere Italian.
Did I believe this man had epic red beans? Nope. But, I did think I’d get a memorable experience and even meet Frank himself. None of that really happened as the only memory I’ll hold from this place is Frank (who I didn’t even meet) and that muff they got.
Located in the middle of tourist central on Decatur, I don’t recommend going here unless you literally around the corner. More than likely, you gonna go in Central for a muff. HOWEVER, this mfer Frank does have an exceptional muff. The beans?
The beans had no soul, had about as much soul as Clay Aiken. I was intrigued, wanted it to work out very badly, but unfortunately it did not.
Beer – Abita Strawberry
Frank’s Restaurant – NOT HTM Approved
Great Year For Beans
After the most progressive year of my career, I wanna thank everybody who has shown love towards what I do. Whether ya just got here or ya been here, ya made a difference and my vision started to manifest.
