New Orleans in Los Angeles: Creole Lunch at Harold & Belle’s in Jefferson Park
I have Harold & Belle’s on my “To Go” list since 2010, and have been putting it aside because it’s meal that’s carb intensive, with lots of deep fried seafoods. So, I knew this was going to be a heavy meal that I should avoid since my goal for the last couple of years is to try to eat healthier.
Finally, I caved in and decided to bring one of my foodie groups here for a family style lunch. We were able to sample a good variety of dishes. After enjoying bites of gumbo, jambalaya, mac ‘n’ cheese, red beans & rice, fried oysters and fried catfish. Needless to say, after this delicious meal, it was time to go into a food coma for a couple of hours.
