We have dined the best and worst of New Orleans. Closer to home it is difficult to find authentic n'awlins cuisine. Sure there is High Street, Carmines, Crawdaddy's, Nora's, a wannabe in Paoli, several in Phila and Manyunk and others that have opened and closed.
A while ago we discovered Cajun Kate's at Booth's Corner Farmers Market in Boothwyn, PA. Since then we have been enamored with all they have to offer.
Just this week we had some fried cajun mac & cheese, crawfish pie; gumbo of the day, gator on a stick, and crawfish pie. This place is the real-deal regarding Louisiana flavors and taste. They do a nice take-out business which is what we do since there is limited seating.
When visiting Total Wine we always make a point to drive cross-country just to savor their delicious treats.
