A Note on K.O.K Wings & Things

Hello ladies and gentleman, few days ago I went back to K. OK with my mom to get some of that delicious food. I was so disappointed and a bit disgusted with what I saw. The floor was dirty and sticky. Tables were not clean, and they had so many waitresses just standing and talking. Don’t get me wrong, the food tasted great, but while we were waiting to get our food and go, it did not feel good at all to be there.

So, ladies and gentleman, my rating of K. Okay goes down to a 2.5 starts.

The Kritic re-says:

  • 2.5 starts
    • Food was great
    • Prices were good
    • The place was not as clean as a restaurant should be. My shoes kept sticking on the floor and they had ketchup stains and many tables were dirty
    • Service was so slow, we had to wait so long to order because the waitresses were talking to each other and checking their hair.

K.O.K Wings & Things

Hello ladies and gentlemen hope you are having a great day!

So I went to a place called K.O.K Wings & Things. Let me just say this, it was so good,  I ate everything on their menu, the shrimp, the fish, the chicken, the fries, and okay kay kay their crawfish too. You can tell already I had the biggest belly there. No kidding I looked like I was pregnant. In the pictures I sucked my belly in.

Everything was fried and I like every single one of them. The spices were outstanding but some people may not like it, but I like spicy so I say try it. Their fries had ranch and barbecue on them. Surprisingly It was tasty.

But then there was the one and only watering, juicy, addicting … CRAWFISH. They have a little small stand outside called K.O.K. Crawfish & Things. They don’t have mild or medium, they have spicy crawfish but it was so so so good. The corn… the corn…I dare you to eat it and the potatoes. I give this place a spicy 5.0. That’s that ladies and gentlemen have a great day and go check K. O. K right by UL Lafayette on 405 E University Ave, Lafayette, LA 70503.

The Kritic says:

  • 5 starts
    • The place has a simple and cool decoration.
    • You must order and pick up at the counter.
    • No activities for kids, but they have TVs and a very laid back atmosphere.
    • The menu is unique and the food and drinks taste great.
    • Did I say the food tastes good? Let me say it again, okay kay kay? The food is delicious.

A Taste Of Laos

Hello ladies and gentlemen hope you are having a great day. I’m having an ok day. School starts tomorrow, so I’m not very happy. But let’s talk about food. This past weekend as I told you I went to the Lao New Year Celebration and it was nice.

I met monks, got blessed, ate plantains, beef jerky and beef on a stick, heard music, visited the temple, and had a lot of fun.

The temple was beautiful. The monk we met explained so much about their habits, why they throw water on the statues, why they play the drum, or why they don’t eat after 12PM. Such an interesting culture.

The beef jerky had a different taste, I didn’t like it but my sister liked it, although she didn’t like the snow ball. The snow balls had different tastes and different things on it. The beef stick had a bit of fat on it but the seasoning was good.

They had chicken feet and other foods to taste, but I got full and didn’t try it. But overall, because it gave me an idea of the Laotian culture, I give the Lao New Year Festival 3.5 Starts. That’s that ladies and gentlemen. Have a great day and don’t forget to go out and try new food and new places.

Lao New Year Celebration

Lafayette, are you looking for something to do tomorrow? Go check out the Lao New Year Festival. This is an annual event that takes place at 7913 Champa Avenue, Broussard, LA 70518.

This event celebrates the beautiful culture of Laos 🇱🇦. They will have a parade, music, dances, a lot of food, and fun things going on. I went today to check the area and here is my advice:

1. Wear boots.

2. Bring cash.

3. Go early or parking will be a bit far and you will have to pay.

I hope to see you because the food smelled good, a lot of kids were playing around, some monks were practicing to play the taiko (a huge drum), ladies were practicing for the pageant, they had floats, snowball machines, and many other fun things.

Farmers Market

Hello ladies and gentlemen hope you are having a great day.  I’m having a blast because there is no school Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and yes I have no school for a week. So it’s time to enjoy and check out new places. Today I went to LFAM? What is that? Lafayette Farmers & Artisans Market. It’s located at 2913 Johnston Street, Lafayette, LA 70506.

There is a lot of stuff at the Farmers Market, but this week Chef Bourque’s Beignets caught my attention. Those beignets were delicious. They melted in my mouth and as expected the sugar flew around, so guys you must try it. That’s a 4.5 starts right there!!!

To match my yummy beignets I drank a frozen lavender lemonade from Magnolia Moon. Yes, you read it well. Lavender lemonade. And guess what? It tasted good. I suggest you try it. But do not, I repeat do not get the frozen chai coffee. That tasted worse than boiled carrots, broccoli, and dirt mixed together. The frozen lavender lemonade however, deserves 3.5 starts. My sister even ate the flowers used for the decoration.

So, if you are looking for something to do on a Saturday morning, want to try new things, and support local farmers and artisans, make sure to check LFAM, you won’t be disappointed. You can run, play around, pet dogs, eat, listen to music…I always like going there.

That’s that ladies and gents, have a good one, enjoy your weekend and stay tuned, more post coming soon.

Pedro’s With My Bro

Hello ladies and gentlemen hope you are having a great day. By the title you can tell that I went to Pedros with my friend. Pedros is a new restaurant located at 3323 Ambassador Caffery, Lafayette, LA 70506.

When I arrived it was a nice place and the art was cool. I asked for a lemonade and an enchilada with a lot of cheese. It didn’t take them that long to give us our meal. They enchilada came with rice and beans. When I took the bite of that enchilada I thought my taste buds exploded with deliciousness. The enchilada had a good taste with the cheese. The beans were good but I liked it the most because of the cheese inside. The rice was okay it was good but normal for me.

I gave Pedro’s a 4.5 only because of the rice. That’s that ladies and gentlemen have a great day.

The Kritic says:

  • 4.5 Starts
    • Service was quick
    • Prices were affordable
    • The food was delicious
    • They had activities for kids
    • The decoration was cool and the place was very clean.

KELONaid

Hello ladies and gentlemen,

I haven’t been posting but I will soon post. I’ve been to three places that I want you to know all about. But today I want to talk to you about KELONaid, my fundraiser.

Every other year I sell lemonade and donate all the money to a charity I pick. This year I picked St. Joseph. I love volunteering there and I like the work they do with the homeless.

So come out this Saturday, March 23, 2019 from 10AM to 12PM at CrossFit Acadiana (401 E. Cypress St, Lafayette, LA 70501).

If you can’t make it, you can still donate through Venmo. Just search for @KELONaid.

Thank you for your support!
