The Milk Bar, Riverbend

I'm in a happy MOO-oood! Wanna know why? I finally ate at The Milk Bar. The Milk Bar is a cute little sandwich shop located in the Uptown/Carrollton/Riverbend section of New Orleans. There's been a lot of buzz about their sandwiches, so I thought I would check them out.

The Milk Bar in the Riverbend is Sweet!
Upon entering, I was greeted right away! The staff was friendly & knowledgeable. I placed my order and the cashier mentioned she would bring the order to my table when it was ready. I took this time to walk around and snap a couple of pictures. I loved the decor! It would make anyone happy! It had a funky-groovy vibe to it! The restaurant has pink & blue painted walls, colorful chalkboard signs, fleur de lis and various other animal paintings on the walls. Moo Dat T-shirts (The Saints are our football team and fans always chant Who Dat at football games) hung from the ceilings and awesome cow themed chairs were placed at almost every table. Those chairs were so cute, I seriously wanted to take them home with me. HaHaHa
Don't I look moo-velous!?! Before I could say mooooo, I was given a "Chocthunder from Downunder" milkshake. Don't you love the names they come up with for their food & drinks? It was choco-licious! So delicious, I felt like singing, "My milkshake brings"...well ummm you know the rest. HaHaHa If you get a milkshake, ask for a malt. It's 25 cents more and thicker! A few minutes later I was handed a bag with "Kim Psycho" on it! LOL You should've seen my face! WTF??? HaHaHa Yes, I ordered their Psycho Chicken Sandwich, but when I saw the bag it made me want to laugh. The Milk Bar serves all of their sandwiches HOT from the oven on ciabatta loaves. Mmmm! Mmmm! The sandwich was psychotically good! You could taste every topping! You could see every topping! I could only eat half and brought the rest home with me.
I really have nothing bad to say about The Milk Bar (would you? they serve locally owned Zapps VOODOO potato chips!). I Put A Spell On You! Not today you won't! HaHaHa Some people may complain about the sandwich prices ($8.50), but honestly the amount of toppings and the size of the sandwich make it well worth the price.When you want a freshly prepared, yummy tasting HOT sandwich (and you're sick of Subway), definitely stop by. You can eat in. Take out. It's a comfortable laid back atmosphere. And the cows are kicks! HaHaHa Below is what I wore...

I love very thing about this Milkbar! Who would imagine a milkshake named after the Antipodes! I'm honoured! Hilarious re Kim Psycho label. Cheeky. I'm hungry! Xx

Anya Jensen said...

YUM this looks fab - I'm starving just looking at this. And the Kim psycho made me laugh - ha ha - how funny is that. Happy day love,

The Milkbar sounds wonderful, Kim! Personally, I'm totally willing to pay for a good sandwich, because a truly good sandwich that is made hot and fresh can be hard to find! I loved perusing the menu and seeing how many choices there are that don't include meat - and restaurant that offers good vegetarian choices gets big bonus points from me :)

I went downtown with my boys yesterday, nothing special but they didn't want to watch the fireworks. They said that it's boring. Haha.

Kim, you are so adorable! I love the constant mention of 'moo' in your posts, it seriously cracked me up. When I come to NOLA, can we hang out? LOL. I've heard of this place, my boss wanted to take me there last time I was in NOLA, but it ended up raining and we went to cafe du mond instead :) This looks so delicious. I'm totally in love with the food and culture of NOLA! Def adding this to my list the next time I come there!

Kim that place sounds like so much fun! I live "Down Under" so I'd be sure to order that milk shake if I went there. From what I've seen on TV New Orleans is such a wonderful place with so much character and this Milkbar sounds like it would fit right in. Thanks for sharing, I wish I could go there with you! http://sparkle2day.com

This place does look and sound absolutely moo-velous! You look so cute and content with your milkshake and that sandwich is totally making me hungry. We have a Momofuku Milk Bar in NYC that specializes in sweets and desserts. I think you'd like it :)

Those Madame Mouse Louboutins were from the CL Spring collection! I just knew you'd love them Kim!

Happy 4th of July girlfriend!
