I'm equally skeptical, but in fairness my favorite Chicago-style hot dog is found in Ann Arbor, Michigan (not Chicago), and my favorite chacarero sandwich is found in Boston (not Chile). That said, I have never, in 30 years of searching, found Creole or Cajun cuisine anywhere in the world that matches what can be found in Louisiana and the immediate environs.

Funny you should mention that. We were in Australia last August and had a very bizarre experience in Sydney & Adelaide. Here痴 a quote from my post in the Oceania forum:

Another interesting/weird experience we had was when our waiter at Bōrn told us about a New Orleans influenced restaurant a few blocks down Barangaroo called NOLA (our shorthand for New Orleans, Louisiana). Out of curiosity, we went for dinner that night. Amazingly, they had an Abita Beer on the menu, which is a local craft beer from our area. Food was decent. Lots of New Orleans music was played. Noise level was pretty high.

If that wasn稚 strange enough, while we were in Adelaide, someone took us to another restaurant named NOLA, which is totally unrelated to the one in Sydney. It was another kinda, sorta New Orleans inspired restaurant. One of their menu items was a Cajun Sweet Potato Po達oy, 典he classic New Orleans sandwich . I can assure that no Cajun would be caught eating such a sandwich, if it even existed. And, it痴 definitely not a New Orleans classic. We looked around the place, but didn稚 eat there.

We thought it was quite ironic and amusing that there were two totally unrelated restaurants in two different cities, named NOLA. It certainly added a little highlight to our trip.

My wife痴 mantra was 展e didn稚 come to Australia for the food.

Now, to bring this back on topic, a new restaurant that痴 worth trying - Junior痴 on Harrison

Parkway serves a Sweet Potato Po Boy. It's not "Cajun", but I'll give the Aussie's a pass on that.

1929 POTATO OR SWEET POTATOThe first poor boy ever made by the Martin Brothers to feed the striking street car workers. We fry the potatoes golden brown and cover it in roast beef gravy.
And to keep things on topic, three new restaurants I've tried and liked a LOT.

There痴 a New Orleans-themed restaurant in Dubai called NOLA. I won稚 even try. However, not far from there is a fast casual place called Pickl that serves a superb Nashville hot chicken sandwich.

We vacation in New Orleans 2-3x per year and visited Parkway for the first time back in December.

It was easily one of the 2-3 best po-boys I've ever had. The amount of shrimp they put on the sandwich would easily eclipse the price of the sandwich anywhere else.

The line moves fast. The sauces, drinks, condiments, etc. are all self serve. Water is available from a jug. The majority of the seating is outdoors in folding chairs under a tent. Very, very "no frills", but the sandwiches are awesome.

One needn稚 wait in the line at Parkway. If you sit at the bar or one of the adjacent high tops you order from the bartender.
