Who makes the best Kingcakes in the City?

Peter | Feb 14, 200404:17 PM

OK, I have now tried enough to have an opinion, but am curious what others think:

I tried McKenzie's, and don’t think much of the variety being sold by Tastee. I should note that i am partial to cream cheese, or strawberry cream cheese filled, so my tase test is not based on the pure, traditional variety.

I have thus far tried Antoine's on Freret, Randazzao's on Hullen, Maurice's, and Chez Pierre in Kenner on Vets. Of these, Antoine's was clearly the best (Randazzo's, while good texture and probably the best cream cheese, was just overwhelmed with the gloppy icing) I have read about a different Randazzo's in Slidell, but have not yet ventured up that way.

Does anyone have any recommendations/suggestions/criticisms?
