When the Simpson’s took an unexpected trip to New Orleans during the 29th season of the beloved cartoon comedy, Homer seized the opportunity to indulge in one of the Crescent City’s most notable draws - its culinary scene. From dishes at world-renowned restaurants to off-the-beaten-path eateries, the show featured a plethora of can’t-miss spots in the two-minute-long montage.

Recently, two visitors from Switzerland made their way to the city to recreate Homer’s epic food bucket list, and the results were golden!
