If you're looking for a New Orleans parade that's out of this world, then don't miss out on the Intergalactic Krewe of Chewbacchus parade this Saturday, February 5. Chewbacchus, which will kick off at 7 p.m., is dedicated to all things science fiction like Star Wars, Star Trek, and so much more. But before the revelry starts, you're going to need a bite to eat! Here are five local establishments along Chewbacchus' parade route.
Founded in 2018 by mother-son pair Chef Lenora Chong and Larry Morrow, Morrow's is unique in that it serves authentic Korean dishes alongside New Orleans classics. Along with file gumbo and po-boys, you can also find bibimbap (aka a Korean rice bowl) and Korean BBQ short ribs on the menu. They even have plenty of oysters for you to enjoy! Order one or two of their signature cocktails and enjoy! 2438 St. Claude Ave., 504-827-1519, morrowsnola.com
