Saints star Cameron Jordan sat down with Uproxx to share his favorite things to do in New Orleans — and most of them involve food. Here are Jordan’s favorite spots in New Orleans to eat, drink, and kind of get away from it all.

Ice Cream: Creole Creamery not only has Jordan’s favorite ice cream. It’s also Jordan’s favorite spot to go when he wants “to get away from everybody.” “You can go there and just sit in a little booth in the corner and sorta you know forget about your woes while you’re eating a little ice cream cone.”

Ramen: New Orleans has been slow to get on the ramen trend since the city already has stand-out brothy noodle soups like pho and yakamein in its culinary canon, but Jordan has “been feeling this place Kin.”

Steaks: Mr John’s Steakhouse, located on Saint Charles Avenue, and South American meat house La Boca in the Warehouse District.

Turtle Soup: Commander’s Palace, which appears on Eater NOLA’s list of 38 Essential Restaurants, has a “phenomenal” version of this dish.

Soft Shell Crab: GW Fins. Jordan also notes that GW Fins is a great date restaurant.

Po-boys: Zimmers Seafood had Jordan’s nod for best po-boy.

Drinks: Ace Hotel has a “nice lounge.” Aloft has a “nice vibe.” And the Dueling Piano on Bourbon is “like the merriest time ever.”

Gumbo: Donald Link’s Peche in the Warehouse District is Jordan’s choice for seafood gumbo.

Late Night Eats: The Trolley Stop, which appeared on Eater’s recent Open 24-Hours/Day map, is where Jordan goes when he’s “done playing video games and you look over and it’s like dang it’s 3 o’clock in the morning.”

Snoballs: Hansen’s is the spot for these icy sweet treats, which Jordan notes are not snowballs. “It’s not a snow cone like everywhere else in the country, snoball. The difference is the ice being made, it’s just softer. We’re talking about the most elite snow cone, it’s snoballs.”
