- Ordered: Beef Brisket Poboys
- Thoughts: Tujagues Restaurant is one of New Orleans’ old and fancy establishments in the heart of the French Quarter. We weren’t up for the full sit-down experience at Tujagues, but we’d heard about a secret (well, not so secret) way to taste the delicious brisket and debris without putting in the time or money. The restaurant’s bar, which sits adjacent to it on a Decatur corner, offers up a poboy with the same roast beef served on the restaurant’s signature plate. The sandwich is definitely not for the meek: a near overload of Tujague’s special horseradish sauce puts a sinus-clearing kick in every bite. But, every time you’re about to throw in the towel you get a small taste of the tender beef and you’re ready again for your next bite. Note: one sandwich is enough for two people, and make sure to ask them to go easy on the horseradish if you’re not prepared to shed a tear!
