5. Cate Street Seafood Station

Cate Street is one of Hammond’s top hometown restaurants. They have amazing decor in the inside of their establishment. They are located in the downtown area of Hammond which is good scenery. The type of foods range on to Cajun styles dishes, steak & sushi plus sake and craft beers. My favorite thing to get is there is the Boston Roll. It comes with crawfish, shrimp tempura, snow crab, asparagus and avocado, wrapped in seaweed and soy paper, topped with crunchy, eel sauce and chef sauce with sriracha on the side. So delicious!

They have foods like tender steaks and juicy burgers, fluffy stuffed potatoes, super thick pork chops, delicious grilled tuna, as well as signature dressings, appetizers, and soups. Also they have stocked bar with fine beers, liquors, mixed drinks, and patrons .My favorite dish is their buffalo tenders with dressed cheese fries, its an A+ meal.

3. Nagoya

This is another restaurant in downtown. Nagoya is Japanese Sushi Steakhouse. For my people out there, who love a good hibachi/sushi place this is where it's at in Hammond. They have the signature sushi called Pink Lady. It is fried with crawfish and snow crab. The shrimp rice is also so delicious!

2. Taco’s and Beer

This is funny because this another downtown restaurant. Some of the bests are in downtown Hammond, let's just say that. Taco’s and Beer is one of those iconic restaurants in Hammond because you know your going to get a good taco. They sell other thing like wings, quesadilla, soups, salads, and burgers. My favorite thing to get is four street tacos. You get to choose different meats that you want. I get two steaks, ground beef, and a shrimp taco; with a side of queso. Let’s not forget they have many drinks too. I always a classic margarita, the flavor depends on how I feel. The restaurant also has a really good aesthetic; with beautiful art all around. Love them!

  1. Yama

We have finally made to the top one! Yama has hibachi, juicy seafood and fried foods. I love their seafood because it so good and at good price. When I go there, I get D10 which comes with shrimp, snow crabs, a lobster, sausage, eggs, and corn. Guess what, all of that just forty dollars. I love to see it. Not forget you have to get the all mixed sauce, but choose the level spice you want. This restaurant is top tier.
