Hush Puppies in NOLA?

We will be there early February. Where can I get Hush Puppies in Nola?

Thanks in advance,

  1. Charlies Seafood in Harahan has the best ones I can think of. They're not all that common.

    1. I used to love all things hush puppy as long as there were no corn kernels in the fritter. I haven't had any in years but recently noticed them at the following. If you try them, I would be curious to learn how they are.

      Cochon: charred onion & chile hushpuppies with goat cheese cream

      High Hat: Fresh pond raised U.S catfish served with slaw,
      fries and hush puppies (but no mention of them as a side)

      930 Tchoupitoulas St., New Orleans, LA 70130

        Actually, I have greatly enjoyed the hushpuppies at Catfish Charlie's (Pontchatula, LA), with the corn kernels. Sort of like the jalapeƱo cornbread in the US Southwest, with the kernels, so it might well be JUST my personal tastes.

        Normally, I think of hushpuppies as more Deep South, than NOLA cuisine, but still, there should be some good ones, in NOLA.


      2. High Hat Cafe on Freret St.

        1. High Hat has good hushpuppies.

          1. Personally, I've always liked Zea's hush puppies: very crispy and moist.
            Another spot that I've enjoyed hush puppies recently was Bouligny Tavern, they are more cakey in consistency but served with a pate and tomato jam that makes them quite yummy.
