King Cajun Crawfish
King Cajun Crawfish is located on Mills Ave next to Banana’s Modern Diner. Parking can be a bit tight but street parking is available. It’s a bit tight as far as seating goes in here too. The menu lists salad, wings, shellfish, po boys and assorted fried items. Me? I’m here for the crawfish! It is called “King Cajun Crawfish” afterall. If you select the crawfish or any other boiled shellfish, you pick your seasoning of choice: Lemon Pepper, Rajun Cajun, Garlic Butter, or Sha Bang. I recommend the Sha Bang, it’s spicy garlicky goodness. Well, I can’t just eat all crawfish (I could…. but I want to try some of the other food here) so I ordered the Jambalaya and the Oysters & Fish.
The Jambalaya here was sweeter to what I’m accustomed to. I prefer my Jambalaya a bit spicier but it’s not a bad dish at all. (Not the most appetizing looking meal though.) You got your sausage, rice, celery and what not This is not a “must order” dish unless you just don’t want something fried in your belly.
Oysters and fish basket. You got your fried oysters, fried fish and some hush puppies. Simple enough. The fish and fried oysters were fried perfectly. The hush puppies looked burnt but the contents inside were pretty tasty. Cole slaw was…mediocre. Not another “must order” dish either but not a bad option either.
Well, the Jambalaya and the Oysters & fish is ok but how about the crawfish? YUM YUM! I most certainly approve of the crawfish. I even put my bib on. It’s messy, it’s tasty, I’m definitely a fan. There’s no right or wrong way of eating crawfish as long as you get the tail out. As for me, I remove the head from the tail. I then suck the head of the crawfish for that extra flavor. Next, I remove the shell from the tail and then eat the tail. And if you don’t want the crawfish head juice, I won’t judge you. Well, maybe a little. I kid,I kid. Just give me your crawfish heads.
The staff here was very friendly, constantly checking on me although most of the time my mouth was full of food. Wear the bib, grab the paper towels and have fun!
