Cajun cuisine's distinct spices stem from its attitude-laden ingredients, such as brazen pork cheek, incredulous crawfish, and sassy-fras. Give your taste buds some lip with today's Groupon to Cajun Country Kitchen. Choose between the following options:
- For $10, you get $20 worth of southern fare.
- For $69, you get a five-course wild-game dinner-club menu for one person (a $175 value).
Like The Adventures of Bayou Billy, Cajun Country Kitchen incorporates Cajun, country, and southern soul influences for side-scrolling 8-bit mouthplay. The finger-licking lunch menu offers exotic treats such as succulent swamp meat slathered with jalapeño mayo in a zydeco gator burger po’ boy ($9.99 regular, $14.99 large), and epicurean entree eaters can treat themselves to the dinner menu's pan-seared Louisiana bayou butterflied trout soaked in white wine and cream ($18.59).
The five-course wild-game dinner-club menu lands diners a full spread of the café's inventive southern fare and scrumptious meats. Rouse appetites with an African-ostrich-egg mini Cajun quiche, stuffed with green onions and a bell-pepper ostrich sauce piquant. The hearty appetizer, salad, and soup courses include a delectable smoked southern pheasant and ostrich sausage regaled in a Voodoo mustard sauce; seasoned crawfish meat draped over a bed of rocket and dill-cocktail vinaigrette; and the South African bunny chow soup, a simmering mix of curried seafood and crocodile nestled inside a bread bowl. Taste buds finish their culinary journey with a trip into the drinkable domain of African cardamom tea, ginger beer, mint green tea, or white or red African wine.
After the meal, diners can bask in the café's Big Easy–inspired décor, which includes colorful Mardi Gras masks, paintings of jazz musicians, and a massive cornbread sculpture of Harry Connick Jr.
