Lactarded Heaven

The best tasting nachos I've ever had!!Why you ask? It's Vegan!! I can eat and eat with no worries. Plus, people who have no issues with dairy loved it. Couldn't tell the difference. 

Vegan Quesadilla. This was also another great pick but I must admit..the nachos were much better.

I don't think this is on the menu but just ask your server for this. They will know. My new fave "spirit" beverage...DC Tap Water. This is a creeper but soo good. This is a must order.

Now can you see why the beverage on the right is called DC Tap Water. lol. The one on the left is the real tap water!

Most of my life, I've felt like a freak when it came to food. My lactarded (yes, I made that word myself..I should trademark right?) tendencies made me very conscious about what to order when eating out. Busboys and Poets is now my haven. I've been going to the DC location but at last.....they opened one in Hyattsville. It's sooo much closer now!! I'm so excited to try the other Vegan dishes! I love thinking I'm eating junk but in reality, the ingredients are incredibly healthy. Score! Highly recommend you check this place out amigos. Oh and just FYI, the menu is not all Vegan. Check out the site. :)

Tres Belle Nouvelle-Orleans

Bonjour amis aka hello friends. I'm back! I figure it's time to give this blog a whirl again. I know I know. I'm a horrible blogger but I'm back and hopefully I will have some exciting experiences to share with you all. First off. I recently made my way south to New Orleans for my cousin's bachelorette party. While Nawlins, (I know very tourist of me..sue me) particularly Bourbon street, definitely felt like the party mecca of the South, I knew there was more to this city. Here are a few of my PG rated pictures of my time in the dirrrtyyy. lol. Enjoy.

All the vibrant colors caught my attention.

Only in New Orleans. I thought he made eye contact with me and was  going to hug me. No thanks spikey.

This is a neighborhood badly affected by hurricane Katrina. The blue poles  shows the heights the water rose. Deeply moving to see. Made me realize how blessed I truly am. 

Houses built after Hurricane Katrina courtesy of Brad Pitt. 

Brad Piit's Katrina project. All houses are eco friendly and purposely elevated in case of another flood. 

Yes. Your eyes aren't playing tricks.  There's an empty one. WTH.

Boudin at Emeril's restaurant. Not my favorite but when in New orleans right? Gotta try everything.

I love old architecture. It's so french too. Reminds me of Moulin Rouge.

Not my cup of tea but not something I will see anywhere in the DMV. Def creeped me out though.

Boom! Another thing off my bucket list. Loved loved the beignets!

Laissez les bons temps rouler!!
