A Girl & Her Food: Oyster Po' Boy Sandwich


Oyster Po' Boy Sandwich

Chef Brian Jupiter of Frontier Chicago invited me in to teach me how to make a his famous oyster po'boy! The oysters are fried in a spicy cornmeal breading for this classic New Orleans sandwich. It's super easy to make and delicious. If you don't care you get your hands dirty, head over to Frontier. Keep in mind, the oyster po' boy is only available on a Sunday!
