If you come to New Orleans looking to try all kinds of local cuisine, you need to get a po-boy. And if you’re looking for po-boys, Parkway Bakery is the place to go. Sitting just a block off Bayou St. John, this casual place takes just about everything and puts it on po-boy bread. There’s catfish, oyster, shrimp, hamburger, turkey breast, alligator sausage, chicken breast and corned beef. And if you’re prepared to get a little messy, try the roast beef po-boy which locals order “extra sloppy.” It’s doused in so much gravy you’ll have to eat it with a fork. Parkway also has plenty of outdoor dining and it’s often packed on the weekends when there’s live music.
