Without a bit of spicy sustenance, taste buds often go on strike, leading to pain from dozens of tiny picket signs stuck in the gums. Placate a palate with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of authentic Cajun cuisine and drinks at Crawdaddy’s Kitchen.
For more than 15 years, the family-owned Crawdaddy’s Kitchen has been bringing the spicy Cajun cuisine of southern Louisiana up to Shreveport. Steam and crack a menu to reveal boiled crawfish good enough to send eaters to Acadiana through a wormhole created by a rip in the taste-time continuum. Dinners at Crawdaddy’s Kitchen start strong with crawfish cornbread ($6.49), a combination of crawfish tails, herbs, and spices cooked into a tasty, crumbly cake. Assert your dominance over some of mankind’s most terrifying and dangerous adversaries by ordering fried frog legs ($13.99) or fried alligator ($15.99). Conglomerate multiple tastes with a combination plate dinner ($15.99), offering fried shrimp and a choice of either catfish or oysters or the crawfish half & half (half crawfish etouffee and half crawfish tails, $14.99). For dessert, float your face downriver with New Orleans bread pudding ($6.49) served with rum sauce.
Crawdaddy’s Kitchen has been recently renovated and features an indoor seating area for inclement weather dining as well as a patio outdoors for dining whilst being abducted by aliens. The casual, festive atmosphere is backed by Cajun and Zydeco music, which provides a quirky cadence for rhythmic chewing.
