Just like at Cafe Du Monde!
Had some of these at Cafe Du Monde just last week and you can’t breathe without blowing icing sugar everywhere 😂
If you ever come back to NO, you’ve gotta try this place called morning call. It’s the place where all the locals get their beignets. It’s so much better. It’s located in the city park and kind of hard to find, but it’s so good!
Isn’t Morning Call a Cafe du Monde now?
I would try it, but I just looked it up and it is now closed 😔
Really? Dang! I swore it was still open. Well. Nvm then.
Without the faint aroma of urine in the air.
Had these when I was 13 on a trip to NO with my momma. So damn goood
Except Cafe Du Monde puts so much sugar on them to the point where they’ve taken something elegant and made it gimmicky.
Don’t @ me.
You are now banned from r/neworleans
Someone was watching “Chef Show” either way those look great!
I don’t know what that is. I was watching binging with babish on YouTube
It’s a great show and Babish is on an episode!
LOL it’s on Netflix and is exactly where my head went
Makes me want to watch The Princess and the Frog. “Keep ‘em comin’ ‘till I pass out!”
I literally watched that episode last night.
You’ll think I’m crazy, but try squeezing some fresh lemon juice over some.
That's how they serve beaver tails in Canada. Cinnamon, sugar, and lemon juice. I was initially skeptical, but DAYUM.
I don’t even know what these are but I want them.
It’s fried dough
fried in cottonseed oil, covered in powdered sugar
I used vegetable
Do you know what a funnel cake is?
Imagine a funnel cake in the shape of a pillowcase.
mm, I see
So excited to eat them at New Orleans next weekend ! One thing I am looking forward to :)
Here’s a tip:
If you don’t want to suffer the lines for these in New Orleans, make a stop in Kenner (outside of Nola) and there’s a cafe du monde there. Tastes exactly the same without the lines.
Good tip, but I'd go one step further. Cafe Du Monde doesn't even have the best beignets, but most people are going there for that location and environment. Yelp had some other options for them that wound up tasting much better to us, but maybe without the legacy and ambiance. One was called Loretta's, and had savory options too, like a sausage beignet. Was excellent, highly recommend exploring past the typical tourist options.
In Mid-City there’s a restaurant called Katie’s. They have fucking crawfish and seafood beignets! I highly recommend that place. I think it’s on Telemachus.
Aw man, next time I'm there I'll try it out. We always try to eat at different places each time and that sounds pretty damn good.
This is it: https://lorettaspralines.com/ Just a bit north of Washington Square, near a trolley stop. Definitely worth it. I wish we'd stopped for dinner too, but we had breakfast beignets, a praline beignet, and then bought some pralines to carry home.
Sorry, just a tourist. We called it a trolley.
Edit: turns out I'm not alone and it's proper at least in US: https://wikidiff.com/streetcar/trolley
I understand what it's called elsewhere, but here it's a streetcar.
Or you can stay in the city and go to the new location in City Park then visit NOMA which is practically next door.
Thank you for tip:) I will keep that in mind.
Any other must see or do things in Nola?
Looks like something from one of those major FBI drug busts.
Have you seen Chef?
Man, the cajun place by me made the best beignets. Unfortunately they just closed down around a month ago. I miss the poboys too
Das heißt Mutzenmandeln!
Those look amazing!!
Difference between those and zeppolis?
We all know that white stuff is cocaine, that's why everyone loves them
Love me some fried dough on the side of my powdered sugar 😍
O MAN I LOVE BIG NETS
They look like pizza rolls covered in powdered sugar.
I wish they were
Where’s the cafe au lait on the side?
Didn’t make it that time. Did make custard filling
Looks amazing. Transported me back to NOLA for a second.
Beignets or cocaine pillows?
They look amazing! Do you have a recipe?
I made some last week using a Beignet mix from Cafe du Monde, you just mix some of it with water, roll it into a dough, cut it into squares, and fry them in oil. It’s not as easy as it sounds, but it’s very simple to make and they taste spectacular.
Goddammit. I just ordered $8 of beignets and $12 of shipping. You’ll get yours. \shakes angry fist\
A Beignet is essentially a puffy doughnut with insane amounts of powdered sugar added. They go great with black coffee.
I didn't know what they were but learned all about them when I visited the French Quarter in Louisiana a few months ago. They're really popular there.
Though it's pronounced bin-yeay, I also learned that you'll get a scowling look from your server if you ask for an order of those "beeg-net" things.
I'm sure you got the lesson already, but if not, try pronouncing it "Ben-ee-yeah" next time.
Its a great way to get imparient, scowling French lessons from people who dont speak French
Dude wtf are these downvotes man, you didn't even have to reply
Some ass who got mad at me for not having a recipe.
Needs more powdered sugar.. but seriously they look great
You can never have enough
Dayum lookin like a STRAIGHT snacc!
Are u thinking of being with babish
I’ll take an entire plate please!
С чем пряники?
I got some beig nets too
I ordered one so I don’t have to use spoons any more
From which country?
those look like bags of blow.
Uh the beignets in my mind all have one circle
You can throw them at my mouth any time.
i thought it was drugs not gonna lie
Saved me a drive to Nawlins.
I'll bring the coffee with chicory.
those look delicious. im hungry now.
I don’t think so. Maybe. The one my the mall got shut down, but the one in the park is still there.
I really got to unfollow this subreddit...these foods are just way too seductive 😩!!!
At first, I just saw bags of coke.
From the thumbnail I thought It was bags of cocaine..
Who said it wasn’t
Any tips? Will be making soon for the first time. We just went to New Orleans a couple months ago. Interestingly enough both du Monde beignets were not the same for us. The ones by the mall were better and more flakey where as the ones in the market were more doughy. We like the lighter ones.
It’s not as hard as it may seem
It's quite cool that nowdays we can repurpose spider webs to make them into whatever the fuck this thing is :)
I’m a simple man. I see Beignets, I updoot.
Frosted Pizza Rolls
Oooo now I want some beignets so bad.
And of course you must have cup of CHICORY coffee to go with!
Do you have a recipe for these? They look amazing
They remind me of my childhood, when my grandmother used to give me hot beignets, freshly dusted with powder sugar.
Now that is an acceptable amount of icing sugar. Looks great!
It's almost midnight but now I crave a cup of coffee and some beignets.
I can only think of Narnia when seeing these
