Welcome to New Orleans!  There’s gonna be a few cheat meals, I’ll tell you that right now.  At the foodie hot spot Cochon (which is French for pig).  The top pic is fried boudin with pickled peppers and mustard.  Boudin is a pork sausage with rice, which they deep fried (sometimes it’s blood sausage, which I would’ve been into as well).  These were just so-so (as in tasty, but not mind blowing by any means).

But that bottom picture is one of the best things I ever ate.  Wood-fired oyster roast.  Oysters flash cooked in a wood oven, topped with some kind of light tomato/parmesan sauce.  You’ll see one oyster is suspiciously missing, because I couldn’t resist before remembering to take a photo.  I would travel here just for this dish again.  There may or may not have been a second order of this to end my meal (ok, there was).
