One Great Plate: Po' Boy

Where to grab this sammie, a baguette stuffed with fried seafood, originally created in ‘Nawlins in the 1920’s.

One Great Plate: Po' Boy
In the sandwich version of King of the Hill, it’s currently the banh mi standing on the top of the heap. But if you could bet on one sammie to knock it off, bet on the Po’ Boy. Traditionally a baguette stuffed with fried seafood, the sandwich was created in ‘Nawlins in the 1920’s to feed striking streetcar workers. When they’d show up, the kitchen would shout “here comes another poor boy” which eventually transferred to the sandwich. Locally we can grab a shrimp po’ boy from Smack Shack, wait in line for the oyster po’ boy from Sea Salt Eatery or go trip it for a spicy clam po’ boy at Smalley’s in Stillwater.
