Where to Find Good FAT TUESDAY Food in the Northwest
Mardi Gras means Fat Tuesday in French. Tradition has it as the day to eat all the fattening foods you can before Lent begins. Mardi Gras of course is widely celebrated in New Orleans, and Cajun, Creole and low country food are very popular. You don’t have to go all the way to Louisiana if you’re craving it, Oregon has many many places that serve traditional New Orleans style food.
Po’ Shines on North Denver Avenue has been serving up Chicken and Waffles, Po’ Boys, Gumbo, ribs, grits, and catfish along with Louisiana Scramble, and Bayou Breakfast burritos for about two decades. Veronica tried the Shrimp Po’Boy and fried Okra and gives it the TWO THUMBS UP!
