This joint deserves it's own thread.I've eaten there several times and it's good to hear Curtis[the owner who apparently doesn't have a home...his home is a barstool at the counter]has the Softshell Crab Po-Boy everybody is lusting over.But whatever you do don't skip the Oysters Contraband appetizer.Baby fist sized Fried Oysters,briny and plump,straddle thick,housemade potato chips and are drizzled with Andouille Remoulade....chefs have been jailed in Puritan provinces for putting such decadence on a plate and serving it up.Evangeline is about 140 blocks from my house and I still regularly trek down Brodie for a plate of his Cajun goods
