Tastiest town in the south, vote for Lafayette, LA!

Vote for the South's Tastiest Town - Southern Living

Quote:
Here's why Lafayette earned its ranking as one of the 10 Tastiest Towns in the South:
There are plenty of new reasons to linger in Lafayette. A new batch of homegrown chefs is delving deep into the region's robust culinary roots, with stellar takes on Acadiana classics. Consider The French Press, where the vibe is hip vintage and the must-have dish is Sweet Baby Breesus (slider-size biscuits filled with bacon, fried boudin, and Steen's cane syrup).

At Johnson's Boucanière, Lori Walls serves homemade smoked meat and boudin, just like her parents did at their store in Eunice, Louisiana. Then there's homecoming king Donald Link, who just opened his second Cochon here, Cochon Lafayette.

I can't see voting against New Orleans on principle. Besides, why are there 3 times as many people voting for Lafayette as New Orleans on a poll like this?

Because people like cajun food more than creole food? Not sure myself, NOLA definitely is the more popular city. As a native of Lafayette I'm proud that we're getting noted for something.

It's because people are rallying the troops for Lafayette. I'm all about Lafayette. I'm from Houma. But New Orleans should win this hands down.

I call shenanigans.

You're telling me that Louisville and Lafayette each have attracted nearly the same amount of votes as the rest of the field combined?! It looks to be the results of bots/scripts/vote-rigging, especially considering those two cities are so close to each other.

Lafayette has some delicious, tasty food. Absolutely. But how can it be to top Southern City, when it's not even the best in it's state?

There is no way New Orleans should lose this. Not only do we have a fantastic local tradition of Creole cuisine (both high class stuff like Commanders and Antoines, and "poor" people's soul food like Ya-ka-mein and Po-boys), but there is an incredible high level of ethnic food (Vietnamese as good as any place you'll find in the country), a huge diversity of high-quality, locally-owned restaurants that cover basically every genre (from burgers to fine dining), AND we have the highest concentration of chefs (both established and up-and-coming) of the South, if not the country.

We should win this going away.

New Orleans should be the hands down winner.

but nice to see Charlottesville recognized on the list.

This has to be a joke. Lafayette has pretty good pizza, but come on.

While NOLA certainly has some good food, they are also riddled with tourists traps that serve crap.

Well sure but Lafayette has less than ten good restaurants and out of those only a few are truly memorable. While that's a huge improvement on the food wasteland it was for years, unfortunately the entire time I lived there, it's not the tastiest town in the south. There are several things that the Lafayette area does far better than New Orleans. Boiled crawfish at any restaurant in the New Orleans area is an abomination. But Lafayette just isn't the breeding ground for culinary talent that you have in New Orleans and it's not going to be. I'm not saying that the restaurant scene in New Orleans is the best thing ever, but it's a whole lot better than Lafayette.
