300 Ft. Shrimp Poor Boy, Parkway Bakery, New Orleans
The Good : The shrimp was hot fresh and hand battered. Considering how much they had to produce this was an amazing.
The Bad : I can honestly say there was nothing bad about the experience. Way to go Parkway!
This Mid-City poor boy spot has been there for over 100 years! Tasting the food tells you why. In this episode my friends and I visited their tricentennial Poor Boy Feast and took our spot in history as we take part in eating a 300Ft. Shrimp Poor boy with over 1,000 other festival goers on this cool Sunday afternoon. The main restaurant was closed and everyone was in the parking lot to make it happen.
Just watching the process of making the sandwich – laying and slicing the bread, adding the condiments, adding fresh hand-breaded and fried shrimp, flipping and cutting the sandwiches into 6-inch portion was an entertaining 2 hours. Then at the end we count down and everyone grabs a piece and makes it disappear. A fun event and a great sandwich. Check out the video of the review to see the whole process of making the sandwich in a massive assembly line. Also, be sure to try and Roast Beef Poor Boy (A debris style sandwich) which is also amazing! (grab a fork and plenty of napkins.) And its all for a good cause. This little festival raised money for the Al Copeland Foundation and celebrated over 300 years of New Orleans!
