Creole seasoning belongs in trusted hands, which is why most Cajun restaurants keep the spice cannon securely under glass. Today's Groupon gives you those trusted hands plus $25 worth of authentic Cajun vittles at Uncle Darrow's in Marina del Rey for $10. The Zagat-rated restaurant will be celebrating its tenth anniversary on December 26th, which in Cajun culture is as valid a reason to throw a raucous, food-stuffed party as "survived last night's raucous, food-stuffed party" and "saved money on car insurance."
Like rocking your soul in a gliding recliner made of sleeping alligators, Uncle Darrow's menu lets your taste buds relax dangerously in the swampy comfort of swamp comfort foods like red beans and rice ($7.99), turkey and chicken sausage jumbalaya ($8.99), filé gumbo (with Louisiana blue crabs, shrimp, and chicken; $12.99), or a richly experienced catfish po' boy ($7.99). A sweet 'tater pie for dessert will leave you licking your lips, fingers, and ever-clumsy elbows.
Darrow's will also happily double as your morning wake-up call with bayou breakfasts of doughy beignets and chickoree coffee ($5.99) or proudly stacked waffles (served with Louisiana sugarcane syrup) that send your mind into a frenzy of excitable Mississippi delta waves. So bring bon amis and let Uncle Darrow's warm colors, feisty aromas, and bona fide home cooking paint your tongue Zydeco. You'll be tasting accordion music for hours after.
