South Louisiana food Mon, 05/17/04 1:55 PM (permalink)
First off let me say that I realize that
1-the CAJUN word for food has been severly torn apart by your average resturant.
2. I realize their are many great places to eat & get good cajun food.
3. I lived in Both New Orleans ( 66-68) & Lafayette ( heart of coonass country 62-66 & 68-79 ).
My favotite places to eat in and around Lafayette are
Don's Downtown
Don's Seafood Hut
Chris's Poorboys
Black's or Duprees in Abbeville for Oysters
Robins in Henderson
4 If you cannot get to these places, may i suggest you try my good friends wholesale food out let. I grew up with these folks in Lafatte, LA, and no one makes better
gumbo
etuffee
stuffed snapper
boudin
etc Louisianafoods.com

enjoy

    Hah! Yeah, I love it when "blackened" means burnt and dry. A restaurant that a lot of my co-workers frequent has a "Cajun chicken salad" that they all like. It has lettuce, cheese, almonds, chicken and ranch dressing. What? Plus they claim the chicken has a "Creole" seasoning. I hate when people cross Cajun and Creole!

      I have been trying to remember the name of a place we ate at in Lake Charles, maybe you can help. It was off of the beaten path and was called "Wille's" or "Steamboat Blll's" - something like that and it is driving me crazy. Concrete floors and picnic tables, kind of a "dive", but the food was wonderful.. They served these little rolls (they had a french name I can't remember) stuffed with etoufee.

        A Google brought up a Steamboat Bill's in Lake Charles but they don't seem to have a website.

          Those would be Crawfish Pies filled with Etuffee

          If ever in Houston my friends have the following great resturants

          Willie G's
          Jimmy G's
          Dons
          Magnolia Bar & Grill

              Especially their pies. We like to go to "Pat's" in Henderson for seafood and come back by "Robin's" for pie.

                  If any of you happen to be driving the New York State Thruway this Summer, hop off at exit 18 and take a look at the big pots of flowers graceing the toll booths. I was roped into providing labor to the ladies of the local Garden Club who planted those beautiful pots.

                  The downside of this story is that we were still enjoying our Martinis at 6:30 when we realized we had to be at the Thruway at 7 and i was very very hungry. What to do? Grab some fast food. Where? At Burger King
                  ( we had a coupon for double cheesburgers at 1/2 price). So we got our double cheeseburgers and fries and ice tea and rushed off to our assigned task. Lesson: No matter how hungry you are Burger King double cheeseburger is never never the answer

                        A third for Don's downtown. My wife and I did a roadtrip based around a proper Acadian Mardi Gras a few years ago -- deliberately avoiding New Orleans, where Mardi Gras is just an excuse for public urination -- and ate at Don's after the Lafayette parade. Some of the best seafood I've eaten in years.

                        We spent the day itself in Houma, with a sidetrip over to Mamou. Had the best boudin of my life from a street stall in Houma, eaten sitting on the steps of the local Masonic Hall.

                          MAMMOU! What a place. And home of the best cajun music as performed by "Steve Riley and the Mammou Playboys". And then there is "Fred's".

                          I go on down to Eunice for food, but music and Mammou are made for each other. I went to the Cajun Music festival there a couple of years ago and had one of the most enjoyable days I have ever had.
