YatPundit’s Pub 15-April-2019 – Red Beans and Rice Monday
Welcome to Yatpundit’s Pub 15-April-2019! Somebody make this happen in New Orleans!
Two segments for the Pub today, both related to NOLA Brewery, on Tchoup.
Three of us at the NOLA Brewery Taproom, where the food is brought to you by McClure’s BBQ. Wife and kiddo had their usual, pulled pork sandwiches. Mrs. YatPundit usually has the Kansas City BBQ Sauce, while kiddo is like me and gets the N.O. East. It was a nice, sunny day, so we ate on the upstairs deck. The view isn’t the most scenic in the world, being the wharves, but the trains are fun to watch go by.
I had McClure’s Philly-style cheesesteak, which is essentially a pulled brisket sandwich with onions and peppers. Good sandwich, much better bread than the hoagie roll or whatever you usually get for a cheesesteak. The cheese was better, also. That’s the N.O. East sauce on the sandwich. I usually get a two-meat combo, like sausage and chicken, but they didn’t have sausage on this outing, so I thought I’d try something new. It was worth it.
I had mac n’ cheese for the side with the Philly, fam had fries.
We also got an order of Poutine. It’s obviously a variant of what you’d buy in Canada, with fries, cheese curds, and pulled pork. I ended up taking some of the sandwich home, because I forgot how big the order is.
Then two special/limited stouts, from the NOLA Brewery/Sucre partnership: Sucre Blackberry Stout and Sucre Chocolate Stout
