Waffilicious at the French Quarter

So we took the dudes to the new waffle truck that opened up at the corner of 35th and Multnomah at the “French Quarter”, home to the amazing Noy Viet Lao, Eagle Fish (formerly “Kris’ Fish”), Hey Stella and Parson Farms.  We are so lucky to have all this in our little neighborhood!  So as far as the waffle truck: it has breakfast waffles, dessert waffles, and waffles that can be eaten for lunch or dinner.  Some examples include eggs and bacon on waffles, ham cheese and tomato on waffles, chicken pesto waffles, banana and Nutella waffles, peanut butter, jelly and bacon waffles – you get the picture. Hopefully they will put up the menu on the web soon because I couldn’t remember all of the choices!  Mom and dad are on a diet and couldn’t try the waffles but judging by their faces they were giant hits and we will be back!

Stars Steak House

This place was a quaint, small, local restaurant with great service and an amazing staff treated our boys really well. We got there just in time, when we were leaving there was a line and wait to get in. Now in this restaurants defense, our boys are pretty much fooded out, but they did absolutely love the buttered bread, and when we say “buttered bread” we mean bread drenched in a pool of butter with salt on top. If they had their way they would’ve eaten only that. But they enjoyed their catfish, they loved the bread pudding, and they liked the seafood gumbo. We were a little bit surprised that they were out of shrimp. As Mark commented – it’s like a pizza place being out of pepperoni. But overall it was a very enjoyable meal and the boys had a great time!

The Rib Room

The atmosphere was wonderful. The service was outstanding. Aidan had the coil appetizer and Lowell had the seafood Gratin. Lola wasn’t tremendously big on seafood Gratin, but Aidan scarfed the quail up like nobody’s business. For their entrées the dudes both had the eggs Benedict with crawfish, crab, and andouille sausage and mom and dad tasted it, it was to die for. The dudes also loved it. It was by far the most popular dish amongst the whole table. Aidan had the egg nog crème brûlée with a gingerbread way for, and Loel had the chocolate chip P con pie. Both were a hit. And as so often happens, mom and dad ordered right for the boys – we ordered the prime rib which amazingly, was not medium rare and was a little bit overdone. It was by far the best meal of the boys have had so far here!

Arnaud’s

Aidan ordered the fresh fish, and Lowell ordered the duck with blueberry sauce. They ended up trading but they loved it. The bacon wrapped deep-fried oysters were to die for along with the deviled eggs and pretty much everything else we ate. By far the best meal that we’ve had so far. The dudes wore their first suits to this family dinner, and only got a little bit of food all over them!!
