RESTAURANTS, PEARL RIVER
It’s winner winner, chicken dinner – or how about a hot sausage po-boy? – from take-out joint Wishbones, one of several downhome spots in little Pearl River. You can also find regional specialties like gumbo, shrimp creole and corn and crab bisque, all-you- can-eat fried catfish, plate lunches for under 10 bucks and, while you eat, learn about the mysterious Swamp Monster at a restaurant named for him. Polish off a snowball at Southern Delights for a cool finale to your Louisiana culinary experience.
