Tujague's Tips (3)

Tujagues: Some of my favorite food in the world

The place is a long standing resturant the 2nd oldest in New Orleans. The food is always wonderful and worth coming back for, but be prepared for the service- it is always slow. The ambience is pleasent, it is a bit on the fancier side of places. Though I have worn a nice shirt and jeans. They have a set menu in the evening which is really very good.

Favorite Dish Chicken Bon Fem- It isnt on the menu, you have to ask for it. But it is one of those dishes I crave and have not yet mastered making on my own. It is a whole chicken fried with a whole lot of garlic and parsly. The potatos are then dipped in the same breading as the chicken and fried the same way. This is definatly a heavily flavored dish and you will taste garlic for a good 24 hours after you eat it, and you will think you smell garlic for at least 48 hours. But really it is one of the best dishes I have ever eaten, just make sure if you are on a date you both eat the chicken :)

Tujaques: Old School NOLA cuisine

The ambience is pure Mafia circa 1930's, with dark wood booths and warm, golden lighting. As NOLA's second oldest restaurant, you can just sense the shady deals that were made in those dark booths since they opened in 1856.
It's so unpretentious and old-school, you'd never know it was one of NOLA's most respected eateries, visited by several U.S. presidents, business bigshots and movie stars through the ages.
It's not hip at all, which is refreshing in this Hardrock Cafe-style city of tourist traps. It's quiet, dignified, informal and affordable.

Favorite Dish Has to be the classic shrimp remoulade and the brisket with horseradish.
And don't forget the bread pudding!

Tujague's: For a Traditional Creole Meal

I wanted the girls to have a very traditional New Orleans dining experience. Tujague’s was a good pick for a very traditional Creole meal.

Tujague's six course, table d'hote dinner starts off with Shrimp Remoulade followed by Tujague's own traditional beef brisket with Creole sauce , a cup of seafood gumbo, then comes the main course, a choice of 4. The girls each chose filet mignon, and my husband and I chose a crawfish dish. The meal was served with hot French bread, and ended with a strawberry and homemade whip cream dessert served with a light and crispy ladyfinger.

The meal was enjoyable, and was definitely a traditional experience. My non-seafood eater had difficulty at this restaurant. We should have had the forethought to request a salad without the shrimp and a vegetable soup rather than the seafood gumbo for her.

My husband especially noted that he liked his entrée. Overall, the food was very good, but not terribly remarkable. The service was good, and the overall experience was nice.

Favorite Dish I love Tujague's gumbo, it is very tasty.
