a taste of new orleans

Wednesday, December 29, 2010

 it is no secret on this blog that ph and i like food. and that we would even go so far as to call ourselves foodies. it also no secret that we love to eat when we come to santa fe. there are some fantastic restaurants here. we have our favorites, our must eat for each visit. my body craves the subtle heat of green chiles living in the north east. believe me, i have tried every mexican food place in town and nothing compares to the food of the southwest, food that i grew up eating.

but would you guess that one of our favorite places to eat is callie's galle.  a bus turned into a cajun food mecca that sits on the side of interstate 25 everyday from 3-8 pm. they serve authentic cajun food that makes you forget that you are in the southwest and transports you to the streets of new orleans. seriously, it is that good. the first time my dad suggested we pick up food from callie's galle two years ago, i was skeptical to say the least. i am happy to say they did not disappoint and they were quickly added to our ever growing list of "must eats."

i wondered how this little gem of a place would make it and was pleased to see them parked in their usual spot yesterday. so pleased, that we had crawfish etouffee, jambalaya and gumbo last night for dinner. so if you find yourself in santa fe, do stop at callie's galle for a taste of new orleans.
