Shrimp beignets – Lynchburg Legends Bar & Grill

Shrimp beignets - Lynchburg Legends Bar & Grill
Cajun remoulade. $8.99
Lynchburg Legends Bar & Grill, Memphis TN

These were ok, but I wasn’t pleased by the still doughy texture of the inside of the beignets. The flavor was decent though and I liked the cajun remoulade.

Cajun jambalaya pasta – Fork Cafe

Cajun jambalaya pasta - Fork Cafe
Chorizo, grilled onion, pappardelle noodles, bacon, tomatoes in a Cajun cream sauce. $12.95
Fork Cafe, San Francisco CA

This tasted yummy, probably because it was so rich and bad for you! Pappardelle is one of my favorite pastas, but I wasn’t expecting the chorizo to be in meatball form. They still had a lot of flavor and the texture was good.

Plantation pork Waterfront Cafe
Mmm, this was very good! The shrimp was surprisingly tender even with that amount of char on the outside. The fried pork balls were different, but very yummy. I don’t think I’ve even had something like it before. Both items were packed with flavor.

Captain Thomas Henry Sealy grave
Looking down in the grave of Captain Thomas Henry Sealy, located at the cemetery at St. John’s Church. Our taxi driver tour guide told us that we wanted to be buried standing up and facing the sea so he could remain on the lookout for approaching enemy ships. What a diva, lol!
