Breakfast at Cafe Des Amis, Breaux Bridge, LA
Left to right: Bloody Mary with pickled okra and olives, one of two; coushe-coushe, traditional Louisiana dish, basically warm, crumbled up cornbread augmented with milk and syrup, much better than it sounds; House Rock N’ Special: two eggs cooked over easy, grilled boudin patty, biscuit and andouille grits.
Not pictured: the ear-splitting zydeco performance by Lil Pop Ledet, the room full pf dancers, the nice couple from Alexandria with which we were seated, the lady that told me over the din, "We don't want any of that wonky music critic bullshit in here. This place is for the dancers."
