Going on a big long road trip that will take me through Breaux Bridge LA for some cajun food. I have a very flexible schedule, and a moderately flexible belly. Places I have noted to try include (cut and pasted from my itinerary):
Nash’s for turtle soup
*Poor Boy'Riverside Inn – Duck and Andoullie gumbo
Pat's Waterfront Restaurant – Crawfish ettoufe
Soops Restaurant – seafood gumbo
Jubans (fancy) Baton Rouge
Café des Amis
After continuing on to TX I will loop back towards Atlanta (where I live). I kind of randomly looked into Houma as a possible stop and was surprised to see how big of a town it is, chock full of restaurant such as Melvins, Big Als, Spahrs (wild catfish), and Pit Stop for Beignets.
I may grow weary from too much Cajun though and am wondering if a stop in Houma would just be redundant. Or, alternatively, if some of what I have on my visit to Breaux Bridge will seem like just more of the same after the first 2 or 3 restaurants. Truth be told, I probably WILL get tired of Cajun food after a few days and might not want to hit everything on that list so probably best to do the best ones first (assuming I will skip some others). So anyway, just wondering if anyone has experience in both places and feel that some of these are must visits while others are less essential.
