Today I had the best corn bread I can remember. It was served warm and soaking in honey butter. I took a bite and was completely taken aback. Why was it so delicious?? It was more sponge-like than cake-like, but that just worked perfectly with the honey butter. I hate using this word, but this was most definitely a foodgasm.
I also had the barbecue shrimp with a rosemary biscuit that was delightful. Like the French, Creole cuisine really has their sauces down: savory, flavorful, and full-bodied. It went perfectly with the fragrant rosemary biscuit. The turnip greens were salty as expected, but also exactly how you would want them to taste.
All in all this was just a good old Creole meal. The best part though was definitely how every time I asked for something, the waiter would respond, "I got you." He definitely got me with the corn bread and the unsweetened iced tea refills.
