Food is one of the grandest expressions of a given culture.  Understanding that as a backdrop, it goes without saying that one of the distinctive aspects of New Orleans is the type of food and the manner by which it is prepared in the Crescent City.  One example of that is the po’ boy sandwich…

another would be beignets.  Both are classics.

A bit north and way to the west of New Orleans is Los Angeles, CA-one of the more culturally-diverse cities in the U.S.  As with many other large cities, much of that diversity is exemplified  in the multitude of restaurants and types of food available.  Even with that, though, it was surprising to encounter The Little Jewel  of New Orleans, which provides a definitive New Orleans menu and vibe to LA’s Chinatown neighborhood.  The photographs above were made there and not in any number of eateries in New Orleans proper.  Definitely a treat.

Take care.
