Travel Diaries | Baton Rouge, LA

Where Catfish and a Tiger Live Happily Ever After!

Welcome to Baton Rouge, the proud home of one famous tiger (well, 6 famous tigers - Mike VI is the 6th generation of Louisiana State University mascots and a proud owner of a rather posh pad right in the middle of campus!), amazing fried food (my personal favorite has to be the delicious fried catfish), and a unique type of sporting on water (long story short - in LA, you can only gamble on water - except for New Orleans - and the newest casino in Baton Rouge is a rather stationary hotel built on top of the Mississippi river - aka water). 

If you do get a chance to visit Baton Rouge, here were my two absolute favorite food joints:

  • Bistro Byronz - a charming bistro where I can vouch for their Debris Sandwich and to-die-for Carrot Souffle. 
  • The Burgersmith - check out the Turkey Burger and Slider, absolutely delicious with a very wide range of craft beers on tap!
