Izzo's illegal burrito in New Orleans, LA

Izzo’s Illegal Burrito
4316 Veterans Memorial Blvd.
Metairie, LA

I was super excited to eat here because I was trying to study at Starbucks and I saw that there were a ton of cars parked with hungry customers waiting to go inside. It’s gotta be good right?

Izzo's Illegal Burrito

Inside it’s kinda like Chipotle with the assembly line starting with tortilla flavor then to filling (meat or veggie) and then a ton of toppings. What is up with these americanized burritos that are the size of a small baby? This could’ve easily been 2 or 3 burrito servings.

look at how thick this burrito is!

My friend got the grilled mushrooms burrito. She liked it a lot, but wished that they had given her more veggies.

I ordered the steak and I would say, nothing special. The meat was pretty tough to chew actually. Hopefully, if I go back, I’ll try something a bit more tender.

Oki Nago Sushi Buffet in New Orleans, LA

Oki Nago
2712 N Arnoult Rd.
Metairie, LA

How has a year passed before I found out about this $10-all-you-can-eat-sushi-lunch-buffet in New Orleans?!?

When I got here, I was kinda taken aback by how stereotypically Asian the exterior was.

However, I was super ecstatic that there was such an extensive variety in the sushi menu. To be honest, I was expecting one table of a few rolls, I was so happy to see numerous tables with all sorts of maki and sashimi. Don’t fill up on the earlier rolls, they save the special stuff for the end of the line.

And the nicer rolls, like soft shell crab, had a ton of crab meat!

And in case you need something besides sushi rolls, check out some of the fried foods and chinese dishes.

my favorite chinese dishes were the eggplant stirfry (delicious sauce!) and imperial shrimp (reminds me of my favorite walnut shrimp dish).

yea I went a little nuts

They also had a hibachi station! But as you can tell from my first dish, I was quite full and didn’t have room for hibachi.

There was an entire thing of crabs!! There was also a shrimp cocktail section (except I wasn’t in the mood so I didn’t get any).

crab!!
