Angel Reese’s complaint about what she doesn’t like about Chicago gets unexpected help

Angel Reese revealed the one thing she’s not a fan of about Chicago is the food culture as the Sky’s 2024 WNBA pick admitted to missing the food in Maryland and Louisiana as she forges her way through professional basketball.

The Windy City is about as far away from the ocean as you can get, although it does have Lake Michigan close by. Sadly though, that isn’t enough for the 22-year-old who misses the seafood she enjoyed in Baton Rouge with the LSU Tigers.

“Missing the seafood in baton rouge & baltimore rn,” Reese posted onto, formerly known as Twitter. “All i’ve been eating is soul food since i been in Chicago.”

Louisiana’s seafood culture is a vibrant blend of natural bounty, culinary creativity, and social tradition, making it a cornerstone of the state’s identity. Seafood is more than just food in Louisiana; it’s a part of the social fabric. Seafood festivals, like the Louisiana Seafood Festival and the New Orleans Oyster Festival, celebrate this integral part of the local culture.

Among the most celebrated are crawfish, shrimp, abundant in the Gulf, are versatile and feature prominently in gumbo, jambalaya, and shrimp po’ boys, whilst oysters from the brackish waters are savored raw, grilled, or in dishes like oysters Rockefeller.

Blue crabs, known for their sweet meat, are often enjoyed in crab boils, crab cakes, and as an addition to seafood gumbos. Additionally, fish such as redfish, catfish, and speckled trout are staples, frequently grilled, blackened, or fried.
