Thursday Food Find – is  a Louisiana Classic Po Boys.

po’ boy (also po-boypo boy) is a traditional sandwich from Louisiana.

Perfect Bread –

You can’t just use any old bread that’s labeled “French Bread” … it could easily be too wide and too soft on the outside (it should have the slightest crust on the outside and be fluffy on the inside). If it’s not one of the specific bakeries being mentioned on here, then it probably is insufficient.

The original “Po-Boy” French Bread was created by the Gendusa bakery for the Martin Brothers (the creators of the Po-Boy) … the Gendusa family is still pumping them out, … saw some loaves in Zuppardo’s today. If you can’t get any of these wherever you’re attempting to open your sandwich shop, then the next best thing would be to see if you could find a local Viet Namese bakery that bakes a decent Banh Mi loaf.

Voted # 1 Po-Boy Place in Lafayette.

  1. Recently a Cajun place opened up here in OKC and I ordered a shrimp po boy. And they didn’t ask me if I wanted it dressed or not, so I said Oh I want that dressed. The girl looked at me like I was an alien!
