We were dead-set on celebrating National Shrimp Day by feasting on a fried shrimp po boy at one of the dozens of corner stores in the 9th Ward.

Nikki’s Food Store sits a few blocks east of the Scrumptious house and we’d been meaning to get by there for forever.

Jane, the counter-girl has only been in New Orleans for four months, and she’s excited about life in her new home. She moved here from New York City after migrating from China, and when asked what her favorite thing about New Orleans is she replied “the weather”

She made a shivering motion and related that New York was too cold. We can’t imagine life in that frozen wasteland so we have to concur.

We’ll have a full report up on Nikki’s soon in our 500 Po Boys Series
