Boucherie in New Orleans

8115 Jeanette St.
New Orleans, LA 70118

OK so actually Boucherie has been on my list ever since I moved here and heard great things about. And this place definitely delivered! It’s high quality food at a very affordable price! My fellow foodie had the brilliant idea to order a ton of small plates so that we could try a bit of everything! We spent about $15 each on food and we helped ourselves to 4 small plates (pretty sizeable) and 1 dessert platter. We both ordered the caipirinha mixed drink because when I was abroad, I was told that it is the Brazilian mojito but sweet. Unforunately, it ended up being lemonade for adults.

The food, however, blew my mind!The complimentary soup was an interesting blend of flavors, especially the curry that kinda snuck up on you at the end:

The Boudin balls and mussels were delicious and don’t get me started on the garlicky parmesan french fries (heavenly!)

The Boudin balls were perfect with the garlic aioli:

The mussels were good but the garlicky parmesan french fries were to die for! Perfect amount of saltiness:

The roasted eggplant and goat cheese terrine surprised me because I was expecting mostly roasted eggplant, not mostly goat cheese. It was interesting but I was not a fan:

I was really looking forward to the bacon brownie. I think the texture of the brownie was a bit dryer (probably from the bacon pieces), and it tasted saltier than a normal brownie but the bacon flavor didn’t really hit me until I had a big piece of bacon in my mouth. I wasn’t a huge fan of mixing two of my many favorite things. The Thai chili chocolate pie was very surprising because the spiciness was a huge kick at the end when you think, ok sweet stuff and then your tongue screams hell no! burnt spicy stuff! The star of the night was the Krispy Kreme bread pudding, they even had this warm honey sugar glaze over it so it really did taste like a Krispy Kreme donut! It was the perfect amount of fluffy and crispy with lots of sweets! mmmmmmmmmmm
