The Hungry Nomad: Authentic Spanish Food at Lola's (New Orleans, USA)

January 19, 2012

Authentic Spanish Food at Lola's (New Orleans, USA)

If you ever crave Paella and other authentic Spanish delicacies, then I highly suggest you check out this small and quaint restaurant in Bayou St. John. Living by City Park made Lola's one of our favorite spots to visit for a nice meal.

On our last visit we started off with the usual: a bottle of their red wine sangria with mixed fresh fruits and a loaf of their freshly baked warm bread served with the most amazing garlic butter on earth.

Next, an assortment of their tapas: calamari salad, oysters, garlic mushrooms and crab meat salad. The Crab meat is tossed with their homemade alioli sauce served over avocado on a bed of lettuce. Yum! And for the main dish the obvious choice is always the seafood paella which is really delicious and tastes just as good if not better than some paella dishes I tasted while travelling in Barcelona a few years back (of course the setting and views are not comparable). To finish off, we never leave without sharing a piece of their flour less dark chocolate cake which is to die for and leaves us usually fighting for the last piece. (see menu)

Sorry... i live in Zaragoza in Spain, and this is not an spanish tipical restaurant and food.
Paella is only a tipical Valencia food.

THIS IS THE SECRET OF A GOOD TIPICAL SANGRIA:

A big jar
One bottle of good wine (spanish of course)
Soda (in spain we used GASEOSA, like lemonade with gas)
One orane
One peach

Take the orange and make only one slice
Put the wine into the jar
put 1/2 soda quantity
put a few ice (no much)
Put the orange slice into the jar and cut the peach in small irregular pieces
put a little spoon of sugar.

Removing all and keep in the fridge

YOU MUST PUT THE ICE WHEN YOU ARE GOING TO EAT FOR MAINTENANCE SANGRIA COLD.
