¡Hola Nola! (Sundays In My City)

Last night, I say this display in a supermarket in New Orleans. Please note the three languages in the display, noting our cultural ties to the three colonial powers of New Orleans. After tasting these tortillas, I was disappointed. 

Keep working on your recipe, Cajun gringos. You haven't mastered tortilla making, yet.
Earlier this week, my friend and I ordered a shrimp and oyster po'boy each, then we split for a taste of both.  Alongside, I ordered a bottle of Barq's root beer. The poboys were prepared by the Honduran chef and owner at Rosco's near the airport. Alberto Martinez's family hails from La Ceiba, Hondudras, but his specialty is New Orleans seafood. As I noted earlier this week on Facebook, don't walk, pause or stop. RUN to Rosco's and get a great po'boy for a great price.

Enjoy! Bon Appetit! Buen Provecho!

never had that type of po-boy but it sounds tasty. Is it spicy? I like spicy and always associate Cajun with spicy.

Too bad the tortillas were disappointing :(

Yes, Steve. The tortillas were not so good. We have so many Central Americans living in New Orleans that I think we don't need Gringos making tortillas, much less Cajun Gringos.

Fried seafood is not spicy. It's fresh and crispy. Boiled seafood tends to be spicy. It's a myth that all Louisiana food is spicy.

Yes, I agree, Dorothy. I like the name of the company, ¡Hola Nola!

I can eat this kind of stuff only if there's nothing else to eat. Normally I don't eat white bread but here in Spain they don't have rye bread what I eat at home...so I eat only the crispy 'shell' :)

Sorry the tortillas were disappointing though I did love the sign.
That lo-boy looks amazing!

In Honduras, I eat corn tortillas made from freshly ground corn. Everyone I know fixes their own. In the States, white flour tortillas and white loaves of bread are more common.

The HOLA NOLA sign is enticing. Maybe they just need to refine their product as the marketing looks good.
