Ancient Egyptians often threw salt up to the heavens to bring rain, which is why modern humans throw pepper at vending machines to summon Diet Coke. Enjoy a showering of seasonings with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of creole fare and drinks at NOLA Creole Kitchen & Music House.
NOLA Creole Kitchen & Music House hosts visiting artists who play live music in genres such as jazz, swing, soul, and R&B six nights a week. Amidst this melodious backdrop, the dishes on the menu exhibit creole-cooking flair and brim with southern flavour. BBQ prawns ascend a mountain of creamy white cheddar grits ($14), and cajun nachos backstroke in a sweet and smoky salsa ($12). In the creole jambalaya, a bed of jasmine rice hosts slumber parties for chicken, smoked sausage, and Louisiana-style seasoned vegetables, doubling as a soft landing spot for cartwheeling forks ($22). Crawfish étouffée sits atop a throne of jasmine rice surrounded by vegetables ($20). Patrons treat their tongues to the bayou salad’s hodgepodge of sweet balsamic vinaigrette, seasonal greens, sun-dried cherries, pepper jack cheese, and creole croutons ($12), and quench thirsty gullets with the extensive drink menu.
