Asian- or Vietnamese-Cajun Crawfish?

mollymac | Apr 29, 2010 09:09 AM

I have seen a couple of articles (non-local sources) about the Asian/Cajun crawfish boil and it sounds delicious. Anyone have suggestions for where locally this is done and done well?

The articles I have seen are at:

and

They say this originated with the Vietnamese in Louisiana, but only refers to specific restaurants in Houston, San Diego and Atlanta.

"Within the last decade, Vietnamese immigrants working in the crawfish industry in Louisiana saw how the Cajun culture made crawfish, and they were inspired. They brought incredible Vietnamese flavor combinations and French influences to the basic Cajun style of boiling crawfish and took it to another level entirely."

Thanks for letting me know if you know of a spot locally that does this!
