Where to Eat in New Orleans Right Now
The gist: When it first opened earlier in 2020, waits of two hours or more were common at Blue Giant. During the pandemic, Blue Giant turned to take-out only but the original model is now back in action, so if you want to get your hands on one of their massive egg rolls, you’ll have to score a table.
The food: Look for spicy stir-fried eggplant guaranteed to make your eyes water, blue crab rangoon, and an egg roll that’s big enough to share (not that you’ll want to).
The cost: Starters $3 - $14, mains and shareables $11 - $16.
