Re: “The Frugal Gastronome

Vietnamese po-boys are a great way to get lunch on the cheap. Stuffed full of meat and veggies, they generally run $3-$5. My favorite in town is at Dong Phuong Oriental Bakery on chef menteur highway in NO East (all po-boys $2.85, buy nine get one free), but the Eat-Well food mart on canal and broad makes darn good ones, too.

You do yourself a disservice if you don't get the Takoyaki.

Re: “Access Denied

This whole article is unfair, because it glosses over NORTA's paratransit service. If you can't get on the streetcar because of your disability, a NORTA van or minibus will *pick you up* and provide *door to door* service anywhere in orleans parish- for the same price as riding the streetcar.

I think that's more than reasonable, and likely cheaper than retrofitting 80 year old machinery to be wheelchair accessible.

Re: “2 More Restaurants Open on Freret Street

I tried to get some pizza from Midway on saturday night- and they had run out by 8pm! I think uptown has been SCREAMING for a good deep dish pizza place, and Midway's going to do great business.

Re: “New Orleans' plastic bag problem

I didn't say I agree. But I've seen and recognize that attitude in people. It's a resentment of people who have the luxury of worrying about the environment, when a lot of people are worrying about making ends meet. Sure it's possible to do both, but it's easier to assume. Turn it into a comfortable "us vs them" scenario, the "everyman" vs the "elite" and the charged political climate (and talk radio- looking at you WWL) doesn't make it any better.

Re: “New Orleans' plastic bag problem

"Saving the Environment" reminds people of stuck up uptown snobs, or the hipsters pricing new orleanians out of the marigny/bywater. I think that's all it is.

Re: “Cheap Fills

Two additions:
The Moon wok in the french quarter (Dauphine and St Ann) does Bahn Mi for $3 (Vegetarian) or $3.50 for Pork or chicken. They're good.

The Louisiana Super Saver (Louisiana Ave and Carondelet) has enormous 24 inch po-boys for remarkably low prices. Shrimp is $12 ($6 for a 12 inch), everything else is cheaper than that (hot ham and cheese for $9 dressed is a favorite).
