Mother’s Food review.
This place is a must eat at for me. Every time I’m in the New Orleans, I make sure I stop at Mother’s. This go round I made into town around 11 and after being on a bus w/ 50 of my other volunteers for 16 hours & I couldn’t figure out what to eat. It seemed a bit too early for my normal fried shrimp po boy, so I changed it up. Figured that I’d try the Famous Ferdi, fully dressed. In New Orleans, that takes on a whole new meaning, lol! It was amazing. Just filling enough to hit the spot, but not heavy. Which may sound surprising from the pics. I got debris and was a little worried when my bread came sopping wet, but for once I didn’t mind (and believe me, wet bread usually gives me the willies). The crunchy French bread was softened just right, not too much.
I gave half to my friend Perkins, who polished it off in no time. My friend Rodney ended up with two meals, so I ate his grits. It was really cool that a ton of food came to our table, and the waitress just kept letting us have it, by the end of the meal, I’d tasted 3 other meals, including the crawfish Etouffee omelet, which I was so hesitant to eat, but turned out to be really delish! Nothing like the joy of not being cramped on a charter bus to make you share w/ people you’ve just met like ya’ll go way back!
The rundown: I’d give the service a B, she gave us a ton of food, and she got us out of there several times. She was funny, but I had to wait for my food and I have notnone patience when I’m hungry, lol. The food gets a resounding A! Mother’s never disappoints.
