May 11: Les Sisters; Stir Fry Pork with Vegetables and Soba Noodles

Lunch

For lunch the Foodies stopped at Les Sisters for lunch. We’ve been aware of this local institution since we moved to the neighborhood, but never visited before.

We shared Fried Chicken with Coleslaw and a Shrimp Jambalaya. We both really enjoyed the chicken, which was cooked a little darker than Popeyes, but was crunch, tender and tasty with just a little heat. The coleslaw was creamy, which is not a Foodie Greg favorite, but this one we both really liked.

The shrimp in the Jambalaya was perfectly cooked. The tomato and rice mix was tasty, and while the addition of mushrooms was unusual, it added. We both felt that the substitution of Italian sausage instead of Andouille did not benefit the dish, particularly for Foodie Philip who does not like the Fennel Seed flavor.

We’ll definitely go back to sample some more of the available choices, but probably as take out. With tax and tip it was $14.54 per serve.

Dinner

After eating out at lunch, we opted for a simple dinner, where Foodie Greg took pork chops from our Keller Crafted meat box and sliced them for a stir fry. It was our first time marinating the meat in a baking soda solution to tenderize the meat, which it did.

  • The pork was $10.85 or $5.43 per serve
  • The stir fry vegetables, soba noodles and flavor pack was $4.99 or $2.50 per serve
  • Add 20c for a little Fish Sauce to enhance the flavor.

The pork was indeed very tender and the stir fry tasted okay for $8.13 per serve.
