    I miss some of my favorite places in NOLA. I have not had a reason for work to send me there in sometime, so I am in withdrawal. Anyone know a good authentic place to get cajun creole food? Doesn't have to be pretty, or fancy just good and authentic.

    If your first suggestion is Pappadeux's kitchen save it- I view that like recommending the Olive Garden to someone who wants real authentic Italian. hahaha

    Texas, ya'll
    Even though I'm from Louisiana, the only "Cajun" food that I eat is boiled crawfish, boiled shrimp, filé gumbo, Étouffée, and crawfish/shrimp bisque.

    For the most part though, I prefer the ones that I cook myself over what I can get at a restaurant. Now, there used to be a restaurant in Houston near the NW corner of I-610 (near US-290) called Atchafalaya River Cafe that I would often frequent just for their crawfish bisque. It was better than mine and I wish I had their recipe.

    Thanks for the recommendations so far, my favorite place in NOLA is a dark, dirty hole in the wall with some of the best Jambalaya I have ever had in my entire life. Told the wife and my boss that if I weren't married and a father I would have totally been one of those people that went to NOLA for work and never left. At some point in my life (even if for a short while 6 months or so) I will live there.

    I tell ya what, Bernards is the real deal. He came here after Katrina, he missed the food, so he opened the restaurant. He started out in a super small place like 8 or 9 tables. He got so popular that he moved. The first time I went there I had placed my order, and while I was waiting he brought me a big bowl of Red beans and rice. He said they were made by mistake and offered them to me, I thought that was really cool. I have to figure out where he is now, I just know it is one of the colleges.

    Pappy G's on Pat Booker Rd. is not a 'cajun' place, but Pappy G makes a mean Gumbo, and when he has Jambalaya, it's almost as good as my Wife's.
