Oysters are one of my favorite animals to eat. Raw is best, but fried can be very good, too. I was showing a former student around downtown and I suggested Grand Central Market for lunch.
It was delicious and very greasy! I loved it. I love the salty marine flavor of the oysters contrasting with the crunchy batter. The house fried potatoes were served with a red pepper rouille. I couldn’t finish it.
The seafood stall is now called Prawn. The time I went before it was called Bomb. I’m not sure if the stall was rebranded or was replaced. In any case, the Oyster Po Boy was excellent.
Last week I met up with a former student of mine from China who is studying in Singapore.
I took him to the Grand Central Market, which is, to the best of my knowledge, the best food court in Los Angeles.
The bread was crunchy and the pickled cabbage and the aioli provided a sweet and sour contrast to the crunchy, salty oysters and meaty shrimp.
The house fries with rouille were very good.
Prawn is the name of the seafood stall. I think it changed its name or it replaced another seafood stall called The Bomb, or something like that.
The sandwich was delicious, but so rich and greasy I could not finish it.
It’s something I’ve never had, but I have heard about it. After walking around Chinatown I noticed this New Orleans restaurant near the parking lot.
After having lunch at Baohaus, I was still hungry. This being the weekend I looked in the refrigerated counter at The Little Jewel of New Orleans. Seeing oyster po’ boys on the menu I vowed to return.
The banana pudding was delicious. It was creamy and eggy and garnished with vanilla wafers. I devoured it.
The café au lait was adequate.
