|While in the Crescent City, you might run across some terminology you haven't heard before.
Here are a few popular terms and phrases to help you seem like a local. *If we have time, we'll even
add pronunciation tips. :)
Beignet (ben-YAY) -- A super delicious fried piece of dough topped with powdered sugar. (Visit Cafe du Monde for a taste.)
Dressed -- You might be asked if you want your po-boy (or other sandwich) dressed. It just means with all the fixin's (lettuce, tomato, mayo, etc.). (Order it plain when in doubt.)
Lagniappe (lan-YAP) -- A little something extra (for free).
Laissez les bon temps rouler -- Let the good times roll!
But wait, there's more...
What's this I'm eating? How do you pronounce those street names? And what the heck is a neutral ground?? For answers to these and more, download the New Orleans Lagniappe lexicon.
