What Do I Love About New Orleans - EVERYTHING

I can't believe it took me this long to get to New Orleans. I fell in love with this charismatic city the minute I hit the pavement, and I yearn for it every single day. 

This is a magical place where you can be yourself, and find something quirky at just about every turn. I have never taken so much pleasure in wandering. My biggest tip is to do just that - wander your tush off!

Let's get started with accommodations - look no further than Madame Isabelle's House to rest your head every night. Check out my review

I couldn't stop drooling over the architecture and this teaser will explain why.

In the Big Easy, even bikes are cooler than yours. For real.

Let's move on to the delicious part - food! There is no shortage of mouthwatering vegetarian/vegan options. Here are my recommendations for sustenance and bars/live music venues:

Dreamy Weenies (ate there twice)
Crepe Cart at the French Market
Cafe du Monde
Buffa's Bar & Restaurant
Good Karma Prasad Cafe @ Swan River Yoga
13 Monaghan

The vegan dogs are oh so dreamy

The Pesto @ Crepe Cart

So worth the mess (and calories)!

Vegan Acaraje @ Carmo

Red Beans & Rice @ Buffa's

Malaysian Curry Bowl @ Good Karma

Wed special @ 13 Monaghan - Black Bean Veggie Burger

Dat Dog (Frenchmen St location)
Gazebo Cafe
Igor's Checkpoint Charlie's
Lafitte's Blacksmith Shop
VASO Jazz Club

Incredible musician @ Igor's

Frenchmen Street (
Frenchmen Art Market
Riverfront along the Mississippi
Jackson Square

Random sightings in this glorious town!

I hosted my first Instameet and it was smashing! I met some amazing people who made my trip even more memorable.

We are going to be the best of friends New Orleans. Can't wait to see you again!
