Crawfish report

Shelby | Feb 25, 2003 06:25 PM

Found myself in Lafayette area last night and had planned on checking out either Mr. Keats or Cajun Claws. Both of those are closed on Monday. I had asked someone in Lafayette and he at first said Dwights in Lafayette but that Richard's in Abbeville was better. I asked why and he said, "size."
I headed down to Richard's and this place has EXCELLENT food, not just crawfish. The boiled crawfish were perfectly cooked and seasoned. Also, very large crawfish for so early in the season and very full. These were some of the best I've every eaten! If only I could cook them like so well!
Also had Crawfish 1/2 and 1/2...fried crawfish tails and crawfish etouffee. Again a very good dish; only complaint was the rice was a bit gummy.
Overall, excellent meal and I highly recommend it!
