Review of Prejean’s Restaurant by Adrienne Thibodeaux Tate
Years ago we would go to Prejean's at least 2-3 times a month. The food was consistent and awesome.
Today I can’t say this. The last few times we have been there both my husband and I have been totally disappointed with not only the service, but the food as well.
We decided to give them another chance, mainly because we had some friends from out of town who wanted to go there. We went for lunch, and afraid to try any of my regular items, I chose the omelet. (It was still early enough for the breakfast or lunch menu).
Mine was very good. In fact, each person that was there liked their food, with the exception of one, who's food really looked and tasted bad and did not eat theirs. Though their food is not consistent, when it is good, it's very good.
The one item I have gotten there many times is the Seafood Gumbo...which is awesome! I also love their homemade salad dressing.
Review of La Pagua Mexican Restaurant by Adrienne Thibodeaux Tate
Finally Lafayette has a Mexican Restaurant that I can honestly say the food is authentic, good and the service is awesome.
We heard about La Pagua, and though we have several Mexican Restaurants around the north end of Lafayette…and this is on the south end…if you love Mexican food it’s well worth your while to take the drive.
I always know a Mexican restaurant will be good by the chips and salsa…and these chips are handmade, light and so good…the salsa was perfect! We have only eaten there twice, but it’s on our list of places to go soon.
I ordered the Beef Enchiladas dinner with Mexican rice, refried beans and sour cream…I also ordered the guacamole on the side….eating there reminded me so much of my favorite Mexican restaurant located in Austin…finally, as I said, we have a great Mexican restaurant here in Lafayette, Louisiana.
My husband ordered the Chilaquiles, which is crispy corn tortillas smothered in ranchero sauce covered with shredded chicken and your choice of 2 fried eggs or grilled steak. Served with refried beans and sour cream. He got the fried eggs. Oh my, we were so surprised at this meal. So tasty…and so much food….we definitely did not leave there hungry!
Review of Fezzo’s by Adrienne Thibodeaux Tate
I have been to Fezzo’s many times and have never once been disappointed. The food is real, Cajun food and the service is awesome. On this occasion I got one dozen raw oysters.
This was in an R month, which is very important, in the month of October. The oysters were salty, fresh and oh so tasty! And clean…I need to add this because for those of you who do like raw oysters, clean ones are very important.
They do have a special sauce they serve you, which is very good. Myself, I like to make my own sauce, and they were kind enough to give me a small bowl to do this in…along with everything I like…ketchup and lots of horseradish!
Then my husband and I ordered a southern classic…Hamburger Steak with grilled onions and their own brown gravy. It came with a salad and we ordered fried sweet potatoes on the side which came with honey and cinnamon sugar on the side. We ate all of our food. It was so good.
Though on this visit we ordered the above from the menu…we have also eaten their fried shrimp, which is so crispy and not oily at all. We love their po-boys as well. So give them a try…I know you won’t be disappointed!
Review of Café Josephine by Adrienne Thibodeaux Tate
This is a gem located in the small town of Sunset, just 10 minutes from Magnolia Court and the Cottage.
We started off with each a Martini…we had heard about their Martinis from some friends of ours who had gone there. I honestly cannot remember the name of the Martini we got…but it was made with cantaloupe…wow..such flavor…remember though, it does have a kick!
I ordered the Jumbo Soft Shell Crab Dinner. Tempura battered soft shell crab fried golden brown, sitting on top of a grits cake and topped with Irene’s salsa. Oh my…the flavor…I love soft shelled crabs…but had never had them in a tempura batter….unique flavor that I loved!
My husband ordered the Out of the Woods. Deer sausage, grilled rabbit and quail served with grilled onions, bell peppers, tomatoes, sweet potato balls and warm tortillas. It too was very good and such a wonderful surprise to have something different on a menu!
Both dinners were served with a house salad. We tried their house dressing…which has a wonderful little kick. To think a small town like Sunset has this restaurant…like I said earlier….a real gem!
