Another lovely dinner @ Irene's Cuisine (NOLA)
So if you were spending just one evening in NOLA as I am on my way to Florida for the Holidays, where would YOU eat?
I didn't want to dress up or spend too awful much, but I wanted some great creole food so I chose Irene's, a particular favorite of mine. As usual, I passed on the standard menu and had 2 of the evening's specials: andouille/sweet potato soup and a bone-in loin pork chop stuffed with chorizo, apples and walnuts and sauced with a port reduction, spinach and more sweet potatoes-- with pecans--on the side. I washed it down with 2 glasses of house Riesling
Desert was raisinless bread pudding sharing the plate with a small order of bananas Foster and a couple of cups of Irene's great coffee.
