Travel Channel’s “Best Daym Takeout” Goes to New Orleans
Daymon Patterson, a YouTube star known for his viral “Daym Drops” videos, visited New Orleans in the first episode of his new Travel Channel show, “Best Daym Take-Out.” The second part of the episode, which aired on Wednesday night, featured New Orleans locations that locals recommended to Patterson via social media, according to NOLA.com.
In the episode, Patterson visits Treme, one of the country’s oldest African American neighborhoods, to try soul food from Willie Mae’s Scotch House. The “Daym” star then goes to the French Quarter for Acme Oyster House for crawfish and “Boo Fries,” which are topped with roast beef gravy and cheese. His next stop is Freret Street Po Boys & Donuts for a shrimp po-boy.
"My style is different from most of what’s out there," he told The Daily Meal in an interview. "It’s more for the everyday, blue collar individuals. Everywhere you go, there are these amazing mom-and-pop shops and that’s what we’re looking to highlight. We’re asking if it has the best, hot and fresh takeaway food, and I’ll talk about it while sitting in the front seat of my car."
