Last week I told you that we didn’t want to wait 3 hours to eat lunch at Magnolia Table so we tried something new. I think we may have found something even better! We decided to try this little Cajun restaurant called Cajun Craft that wasn’t too far from Magnolia Market. And the food was unbelievably delicious!

Cajun Craft, Our Favorite Cajun Restaurant
First of all, let me show you the decor. There was lots to look at while we waited for our food… which wasn’t a very long wait at all.
Cajun Craft has a cute patio but it was a HOT July day so we stayed inside in the air conditioning.
Our Favorite Cajun Restaurant Dishes
Check out these delicious Cajun dishes… Jo and I split a bowl of jambalaya and boudin balls. Never had boudin balls? They’re an amazing combination of sausage, rice, and spices rolled up and deep fried. Wow… can’t eat these too often but they’re worth the splurge.
The jambalaya had chicken, sausage, and some little shrimp in it. It was spicy, but not too spicy. Just right for my tastebuds but Jo might have added a little hot sauce. Hey, I think there were some veggies in there, too, so this is healthy, right?
Bikeman stuck with his favorite… fried catfish, fries, and coleslaw.
Tex ordered the shrimp basket with fries, hush puppies, and coleslaw.
And our Paparazzi topped us all and ate a whole seafood platter! Well… we did nibble off his (and everyone else’s) tray. EVERYTHING was delicious!
I would love to hear if you have other recommendations for Cajun restaurants in the area. I love Cajun food and can whip up a pretty good cheater version of gumbo, by the way!
