The Rum House Caribbean Taqueria
Somehow, this was my first visit to The Rum House. Back in early August, Jeremy’s parents came in to town from Upstate New York for their summertime visit. While they were here, we ate at some pretty tasty restaurants. This of course was one of those places.
The Rum House is conveniently located in Uptown New Orleans on Magazine Street right before Louisiana Avenue. For locals, it’s easy to get to from most other parts of the city. For tourists and out-of-towners staying downtown, you can easily cab it or take the Magazine Street bus. The St. Charles Avenue street car is an option, but you’d have to walk down from St. Charles Avenue to Magazine Street, which is about five blocks away, but in this part of town, the walk down to Magazine can be a pretty one with views of large old homes, especially if you get off the street car a few blocks early.
Anyway, we visited The Rum House on a Saturday afternoon around 4pm. The place was packed with people. However, we easily found a table for seven people – the restaurant is HUGE. I ordered the biggest glass of iced tea on the planet because it was so very hot out. We then proceeded to the food, which was so very tasty. Awesome flavors. You can see my meal below.
