Fried Chicken is great, but not Chicken Shack great.

I typically get the Pot Roast.

re: Hidden Gems in BR


Just about everything that's been mentioned. The pupusa with the relish is very good at La Reyna. Anthony's, Randy Montalbano's. La Morenita on Florida has fresh-made corn tortillas and a salsa/condiment bar - so good. Ham & brie sandwich at Yvette Marie's. Beauregard Gallery and Bistro has excellent soup and huge sandwiches. Fresh Junkie in the Main St. Market does great wraps, as well as the crepe place there and the place at the end with the chicken salad. I miss the Dolce Vita pizza truck downtown so much

Willie's on Cloverland is probably really a hidden gem to most people. I have friends that live a mile away and didn't know it was there. Chicken fried chicken on Fridays is amazing, but I've never had anything from there that wasn't very good at the least.

And this may sound strange, but for people who are new to BR - students or what have you - I wonder if Tony's would be considered a hidden gem. I mean, a lot of people don't venture out that far, and it's definitely a gem.

And now I'm hungry.

The food inside LaMorenita is as good Mexican as you can get.

El Rio Grande is still open.

Yvette Marie's in Circa which is the old Griffons Drug Store.

Ninos is my favorite hidden gem. I'm there at least once a week and never tire of it.

You keep passing up La Reyna and we will keep eating $8 paella.

Dim sum is a hidden gem imo

El Rancho is still open. Ate there last night.


And word is Anthony's may not be hidden much longer. I hear they may be building a new location soon.

How have I not heard of this? Is it worth the drive from Mid City once the weather cools a bit?

Little Saigon on Florida and Sherwood, next door to the Baskin Robbins.

NOT the posers who have their old location and named their business "Saigon Noodle" or someshite like that ... Dang's is also a good place to get Viet cuisine, but Little Saigon is the best in BR.

Get that grilled chicken recipe and you will be a God.

I went to Owen's 6-7 times. Good people, and I like what they cook, but I just don't like the way they cook it. I found their food to be kind of bland.

There are still a lot of people that don't know about Jasmine's on the Bayou.

the Dim Sum restaurant on Delcourt Avenue in Baton Rouge is pretty good. It's not the same quality you would find in a big city Chinatown like Philadelphia or NYC. My favorite dish is the shrimp noodles (rice noodle) and they are really good here. If I was in the chinatown in Philly and they served me these noodles I wouldn't know the difference.

That's a fact. The plans came across my desk a couple weeks ago.
