Bueno Beignets at Bourbon Street, But Don't Order the Muffuletta
But those beignets! They came five big hunks of fried dough for $8, dusted with all the powdered sugar your body needs for a year. I nearly choked too many times when putting one in my mouth, but the sugar quickly turned into sweet frosting upon meeting the warmth of my mouth. Bourbon Street should've added some chicory to the vanilla ice cream to truly N'Awlins-ize the dessert, but no complaints from me. The other entrees cost too much, but Bourbon Street deserves a visit just for those great beignets; after that, visit Lee's.
