On the list of fictional characters we’d like to ask for a restaurant recommendation, Homer Simpson is at the top. While his choices in the kitchen can be, er, questionable at times, a man who eats as much as he does must have some good taste.
“Did you know that a man can fall in love with a city?” Homer asks Lisa. “It happens slowly at first. Then you develop a crush and your love just grows and grows,” he continues.
After what seems to be a genuine and sweet sentiment, in typical Homer Simpson style, he devours a colossal amount of food as he embarks on a food crawl of some of New Orleans’ most popular diners.
