We crossed over into Louisiana and our first thought was “Bo Bertholot.” For those who don’t know Bo…I’m sorry. He’s a dyed-in-the-wool-Cajun who is currently living in Southeast Missouri…which means he sticks out like a crawdad on a sushi bar.
We had to call Bo and ask where we should eat. But, really, think about the question. Hey, we are in your state…where should we eat? But Bo was up for the challenge. His answer? Drive on up to Lafayette and find Don’s Seafood and Steakhouse.
WOW, BO!!!!! YOU ROCK!
We had the best meal: Soft-shell crab, seafood gumbo, fried crawfish, crawfish etouffe, stuffed crab, and crab cakes. Ben enjoyed the spicy stylings of cajun country and even Jack got courageous and tried the gumbo, “At first it takes bad, but then when you finish the bite…it tastes good!”
Unfortunately, we were out-of-season for fresh crawfish. But that’s okay…just one more reason to make it back to Louisiana again.
What a great meal!!!!
Now I’m sleepy. Where’s the closest Wal-Mart?
