This week this blog will be going out to lunch.
There are dozens of great places on the Coast for a good lunch with friends, and it’s hard to pick just five to suggest. Perhaps the best way to start is to pick a category, and no other category comes to mind faster than the bevy of raised beach-side places that are springing up like the proverbial mushroom.
I can’t think of one that I haven’t been to, from the Blind Tiger in Bay St Louis, to the Biloxi Lugger on Biloxi’s Point Cadet, and I have had delicious, innovative food at every one.
Going back over the hundreds of photos I have taken at these places, the shrimp tacos, with a side of black beans I had at Baja Beach stands out. The beans give it a hint of Cuban, the salsa of fresh tomato and onion was just right and the shrimp were cooked perfectly. Two shrimp tacos, the beans, and a cold beer is just about as good as lunch can get.
