10 Unique Eats in Shreveport-Bossier City

10 Unique Eats in Shreveport-Bossier City

Growing up in Louisiana, I’ve had my fair share of wild game and seafood. Sure, crawfish, oysters and deer might sound strange to some, but they’re pretty typical around these parts. In fact, sometimes even the most delectable of southern meals can feel, dare I say, boring.

I love food, and I love finding new favorites. I rarely deviate from my go-to standards, but I truly do enjoy finding amazing, unique eats.

One of my favorite entrees is quickly becoming Highland Table’s (3030 Creswell Ave., Shreveport) mac and cheese. While it may just sound like another cheesy pasta dish, the penne is served smothered in a creamy cheese sauce with different options: grilled chicken and broccoli; southwest style with taco beef, tomatoes, avocado and sour cream; loaded with ham, bacon, sour cream and chives; or blackened chicken with sun dried tomatoes and spinach.

Highland Table’s mac and cheese

From $6-$9, this is a true meal in itself and should be treated that way. Zesty, flavorful and mouthwatering, I 100 percent recommend trying the blackened chicken version.
Now do I have your tastebuds talking?

Here’s a look at 10 of Shreveport-Bossier City’s most unique dishes and what myself and locals have to say about why we love them:

Growing up in the 1990s, the Disney film adaptation was a mainstay in our VHS collection. Wonderland was a place I could escape to [...]
