The Spot: M&J Soul Food
9301 Lake Forest Blvd.
in New Orleans East
How did you find this place?
Joe Blakk brought me here. He’s next door, Joe Blakk [Income Tax Services].
What did you have then that made you want to come back?
Ooh, turkey necks. You know how I love turkey necks. They was great. How you like your cornbread dressing?
It’s good. I don’t eat this too often. You like it?
I don’t eat much bread. But this is good, baked chicken, falling off the bone, white beans, green peas and potato salad. Reminds me of my grandmother’s cooking. I just lost her September the 6th. This spot, most people don’t know. When you’re in New Orleans East, now you know! And this potato salad is slamming! You can taste everything in it. I like the sweetness of it too.
