Sandwich:
Shrimp Po-Boy


Where to Find It:
Domilises Po-Boy & Bar
5240 Annunciation St
New Orleans, LA 70115

History:
Domilise's is a family-run business. The building used to be a dry goods store and when the family bought it they lowered the floor. At first they just cooked food for friends, however, when the port opened they started selling sandwiches to the workers. That started it all.


BITE Score Rating:
B (Bread) - Outstanding, a true New Orleans product. Acts like an amazing sponge.
I (Interior) - Gulf Shrimp, the crowned jewel of the seafood that comes out of the Gulf of Mexico.
T (Taste) -  The double-dip process on the shrimp provides an amazing coding that doesn't feel heavy.
E (Experience) -  You can come here and be treated like family.
