Cajun Corner Co

chili salt grilled Shrimp

The Cajun-style dishes here are good, but not fantastic. There are certainly better spots to get a catfish po’boy, gumbo or fried shrimp, although we never hear any complaints with the Cajun food selections. Then there’s the Asian seafood menu. This is where Cajun Corner truly shines. Like a shrimp spaghetti served with garlic bread, crawfish fried rice and a variety of seafood “sacks” (boils) with both traditional and Vietnamese-inspired seasonings.  Boils come in a variety of weights and spice levels, from completely mild to “XXX spicy,” which no one at our table ventured to order. The most popular version of the “sack” is crawfish boil with Cajun Corner’s signature “Fam Bam” sauce, a buttery, garlicky, slightly spicy mixture that permeates the crawfish, potatoes, and corn in the boil much more deeply than average. When in season, the crawfish at Cajun Corner are perfect: a natural-looking combination of huge and small bugs. Off-season, shrimp are an acceptable but less tasty substitute. Cajun Corner is a restaurant with a menu to explore as well as dishes to come back for over and over again (read: the Fam Bam crawfish sack!).
