New source for Louisiana cooking items

I finally checked out the Fresh & Easy store that opened up a few months back on Silver Ave and although the store overall is nothing special, it turns out to be a great spot for a New Orleans ex-pat or anyone looking to cook up some NO dishes. Right next to the kosher foods, they have a little NOLA section that includes Cafe du Monde coffee and chickory, biegnet mix, Zatarain's mustard, file powder and various spice mixes, and most important for me, light red kidney beans (not Camelia brand, but just like them). You just can't make proper beans and rice with the red beans most stores carry.

Now, if they would stock some decent andouille sausage...
