FIL 2018

Hello ladies and gentlemen hope you are having a great day. It’s been a while, but it’s summer and I’m back. So I wanted to tell you about the stuff I’ve been up to.

First, let’s talk about Festival International. I went there to introduce two bands, Ladama and Casa Samba, but of course I tasted the food also. Mom gave me $20 dollars and told me to see if I could “festival” with that amount. But the pin that helps keep festival free was $10, so I was left with $10 to get a drink and food. It was enough but I wanted to try more foods and I was hungry, so mom just paid for the other restaurants.

I ate paella from Pamplona, hummus from Poseidon’s, and fried shrimp with fries from Norbert’s. It all tasted great, but the paella rice was mushy. It was fun presenting at festival and being there with my mom and my sister, but I didn’t like that people smoked a lot, although they had signs that they weren’t supposed to smoke. I also saw drunk people sleeping on the sidewalk. That’s not nice. My bracelet for the drinks wouldn’t loosen up, so I had to cut it off and next day it was awkward to use it. Mom also said that the merchandise was very expensive, but the music was good and we had a great time.

Well that’s that ladies and gentlemen have a great day and come back tomorrow for my next post on my talk at the Lafayette Public Library.

Acadiana Po-Boy Festival

Hello ladies and gentlemen hope you are having a great day. Do you know what event is going on tomorrow? Something fun, something cool, something that you can’t miss. Do you know what? The Acadiana Po-Boy Festival. It will take place downtown, in Parc Sans Souci, that’s in 201 E. Vermilion Street, Lafayette, LA 70501.

Last year I got to judge this event and it was a blast. Here are some pictures but also my five reasons why you should go to the Acadiana Po-Boy Festival.

  1. It is free!!!!! The po-boys cost money, but you can go check it out for free.
  2. Po-boys are a must when you visit Louisiana, now imagine having more than one po-boy to taste?
  3. The variety of po-boys is huge, and they all taste so good.
  4. They will have music and is good to have music while you play.
  5. This event is for the family. Kids get to jump and have fun with their family.

That’s that ladies and gents. Make sure to check it out and try not to eat as many po-boys like I did last year.

Aussie Land In Acadiana

Hello ladies and gents,

I hope you are having a great day. So I went to Outback Steakhouse located at 1600 West Pinhook Drive, Lafayette, LA 70508 and it was tremendously good. I ordered the ribs and Aussie fries with lemonade. Mom ordered lobster tails, and my sister ordered chicken tenders. I also ordered the Joey Sirloin, well done of course. It was all delicious, but the lemonade was a little watery. The fries were crispy which I loved. But what I really loved was the bread and butter. My sister and I decided to time them, to see how long it would take them to cook our food, and guys it literally took less than twelve minutes from the time we ordered to the time we got our food.

Their children’s menu was also fun. We got to know more information about Australian animals, we played games, and we googled facts about biggest fish and reptile in the world.

In my book I give outback 4.5 starts ladies and gentlemen, and that’s that. Have a great day.

The Kritic Says:

  • 4 1/2 Starts
    • The place had a relaxing feeling, I liked it.
    • They had a menu for kids with a lot to chose from, took me a minute to pick. I ended up picking two things.
    • The food tasted great and it was prepared fast.
    • Our server kept forgetting few things, but the service was nice and when I asked him a question he answered me, not my mom.
    • Prices were okay mom said.

Crazy Chicken

Hello ladies and gentlemen,

I hope you are having a great day so I went to the new spot in Lafayette, Louisiana, El Pollo Loco located at 3808 Johnston Street. The buzz and all the hype about this place was legit. It was packed, but still clean. They had fast service and the food it’s like fast food but healthier. Outside the tables had nothing set, no napkins, no condiments, we kept having to go in and out. But the mac & cheese was delicious. The chicken was crispy, soft, and tasted great. I had a lemonade it was normal, but mom was all excited they offered Vitamin D water. I also had the perfectly melted cheese quesadilla, tasted the rice, pinto beans, and the corn. It tasted like home food. However, the queso dip was ok, I expected more. Also, the chips really had nothing to it. Also, the churros were not my favorite, too much oil. I give it 4.0 starts for a fast food restaurant. Well that’s that ladies and gents.

The Kritic Says:

  • 4 Starts (for a fast food restaurant)
    • The place was clean and the decoration was nice
    • The food tasted like a home meal, fast food but kinda healthier
    • I liked that they had many people that could speak Spanish
    • The prices were good

St. Joseph’s Diner

Hello ladies and gents,

Hope you are having a great day, if you are not, I have a great way for you to make it better. How? By helping others. I normally go to St. Joseph’s Diner on 613 W Simcoe St, Lafayette, LA 70501, and I want to tell you all about it. I go there once or twice a month. But I don’t go there to eat, I go there to serve food for the homeless. Don’t get me wrong, the food that chef Dorothy and Chef Amilcar cook is great, after you serve, if there is enough food left over, you get to eat also, and it is delicious sometimes.

When we go there, we help serve, and even cook. I already got to help cook eggs. We normally go during the breakfast time because it’s less busy, but you can go help during the lunchtime and also for the dinner time. The people are very thankful and happy to see us. I like that after a while I stop seeing some people, so that means they are no longer homeless.

When we finish serving, we clean the tables, wash dishes, and sometimes we even clean the floor. I like to go there and I’m sure you will like to go there also. Anyone can volunteer, check this link for availability. You can also donate food or donate money Please do help when you can and that’s that ladies and gentlemen have a great day.

New Year, New Projects

Ladies and Gents,

I’m so sorry I haven’t been posting much. I wrote the posts, but mom has been so busy with work and school, she didn’t get much time to check my stuff and upload it. However, I have awesome things coming your way. Stay tuned because I will now be making videos, interviewing people, checking new places, and much more.

So, let’s start with a new post…give mom one hour and she will have it up.

Thank you for your support!

Illegal To Be So Delicious

Hello ladies and gents hope you are having a great day. So, some people (my friends at school) wanted me to share my opinion about Izzo’s Illegal Burrito. Lafayette has two locations, one on Ambassador and another on Johnston street. The one on 2010 Johnston St, Lafayette, LA 70503 is my spot. I love this restaurant and can’t have enough of it. It’s perfect for a quick delicious and still healthy bite. I always get a chicken quesadilla, chips and queso, and a lemonade. They take their time, but the cheese is melted, the chicken cut the way I like and well cooked but not burned. The queso sauce is also delicious with the chips not too thin or thick, just perfect. On Mondays they have activities for kids and adults can choose what they want in their burritos. I really like this place and how they ask me, not my mom, what I want, how I want it, and take their time to explain the stuff to me. For this and the whole atmosphere of the place, Izzo’s Illegal Burrito gets a 5 starts, is just that good.

The Kritic Says:

  • 5 Starts
    • This is a very laid back and fun spot to bring your kids. I love when Mom says we can go there.
    • The food is fast, but is still healthy. It all depends on you.
    • The prices are good. The service is great.
    • They have activities for kids, special prices for kids and a great menu for kids.
    • The place is clean and the decoration is cool, kinda like a sports place.
