Royal Street is an old commercial street in New Orleans. Between Jackson Square and Bourbon Street, there are many shops selling all kinds of art and commodities. There are also some cafes or restaurants, but there are few bars. Street performers can always be seen in the street, especially the reality show is very interesting, some dressed as Trump, some dressed as Kim Jong-un, they warmly invite tourists to take pictures with them. Such scenes are not visible in mainland China.
Red Gravy served wonderful gluten free pancakes, Zappoles with raspberry jam and the coffee spot on.
Royal Street is just beside Jackson Square. It is inhabited by a group of French descendants. Although there are some unique buildings and different cultural scenery, the streets are narrow and dilapidated, especially the sewage construction is very poor. When I went, it rained, and the air of several streets is filled with the odor of a sewer.
