Feed your soul.
Sundays are made for the lazy pants & fam bam style meals.
In addition to the ongoing pattern of speakeasy-esque eateries, a late afternoon walk through the streets of the Bywater/ Marigny 'hood when finally sashaying through the aromatic doors of much buzzed about Filipino pop up, Milkfish.
The fragrant trails of garlic & savory perfume down the block encaptures your sense of smell will hold you hostage. Ahhh! The sights & tastes close to my Filipino roots.
Nostalgia in one one sitting.
Milkfish takes place every Sunday at Marie's on the corner of Burgundy & St. Roch.

Holy housemade longanisa sliders!
(by Chef Adolfo Garcia)
Though, Milkfish's menu covers the standard Filipino fare inluding lumpia, spam fried rice, halo-halo, and kare-kare (all exceptional, mind you). These sliders and spicy,citrus-packed stew are beyond stellar!
Masarap! Thanks Chef Christina & crew for an out-of-this-world service!
From the backstreets...to the cobblestones of downtown...the uprising walks of new life in the Bywater/Marigny 'hood...all the way down to the bayou as I hail my canoe, I bid you adieu. Ya know how we do!
