Travel Channel's 'Food Wars' features Parkway Bakery and Domilise's in a po-boy battle
“War” is a little strong, given what’s at stake in real wars. And yet the show is called "Food Wars." And its subtitle this week is "New Orleans Po-boy War."

A shrimp po-boy from Domilise's.
What’s happening Wednesday night (September 15) at 9 on the Travel Channel is, after all, just a po-boy taste-off.
Granted, two of the city’s most beloved po-boy purveyors — Parkway Bakery & Tavern and Domilise’s — are the contestants, so partisans of each will have a rooting interest in the outcome.
And an expert opinion to share, when asked.
At least that was the experience of “Food Wars” host Camille Ford when she was in town to shoot the episode.
“Almost everyone — and it didn’t matter, business suits or construction boots — had such a specific way of describing their favorites,” she said. “Like, when you first taste a fried oyster, what the first taste should be, exactly how crispy. It was mind-blowing to me, the quality of, and the consistency of, people’s ability to speak about this food. It really is a passion.
oh nice ... i have to watch it!!!!!!!!!! I will have to go with domilise's!
