Post-Katrina – one year later

The worst part about the rebuilding process is that there is so much uncertainty. Uncertainty in jobs, real estate, traffic and restaurants; yes restaurants. I like to eat. I enjoy meals more than most much to my chagrin and my waistline actually, but the restaurant situation on the Gulf Coast has been in dire shape and does not really appear to be getting much better.

We’ve tried just about establishment on the coast and there are a very few places that are worth going to. This is especially true of Mexican food. We have several Mexican restaurants here and they’re all horrible, every single one of them. With the supposed influx of illegal immigrants to the Gulf Coast, you would think that they would be bringing better, more authentic food with them, no? Quick, somebody airlift a bunch of Chimichangas in before I lose my will to continue!
