Nutless Me in New Orleans - Day 1

Our First New Orleans Dining Experience

Hey, whenever we recommend a product or restaurant, it’s still up to you to make sure that they are safe for you or whoever it is with a peanut or tree nut allergy. We are not responsible for any allergic reactions, okie-dokie?

New Orleans, one of the great food places on Earth. However, they really like their nuts and you see praline stores on every block seemingly. We did all of the work in advance finding the places that are supposedly kind to those of us dealing with a peanut or
tree nut allergy. Then, you get here, find out there is a cruise ship that just arrived, and are told that there is a one hour plus wait at each of the restaurants on your list. Fortunately, we had a back up plan: Popeye’s Louisiana Kitchen. It was fast, on Canal Street so you get to watch all of the people going by, and honestly, it was better than the one at which we last ate back in Portland. So here’s to you, Popeye’s for giving us our first…um…authentic New Orleans dining experience.

Be sure to do your own research since their allergen policies can change and the peanut and tree nut allergy forums, some of which will convince you to never eat out, report differing experiences. Here is Popeye’s allergen menu.
