Head-on Boiled Shrimp Junkie Needs Help (FQ/ CBD)

Hi. My name is SnoCat ("hi, SnoCat") and I am addicted to head-on boiled shrimp.

Deanie's and (original) French Market Restaurant have sufficed; however, I sense there is more crustacean greatness awaiting me.

Any suggestions for places from Frenchmen to Poydras are most appreciated. And yes, the shrimp have to be head-on; it is all about the cranial flavor and the dandy finger puppet opportunities.

  1. I can not offer you a place in your designated area. If you are willing to travel outside of your zone, you can find great boiled shrimp at Schaeffer and Rusich's in Bucktown, Big Fisherman on Magazine St. and the Galley on Metairie Road.

    1. Last time we were there, Mr. B's offering of BBQ shrimp was head on/head off
