Set in a quite strip center off Loop 1604 and Redland Road, Bourbon Street Seafood Kitchen offers up some Cajun and seafood specialties at reasonable prices. They have a pretty good Cajun selection including items like fried Frog Legs and Stuff Shrimp Bayous. But they also have a good choice of non-Cajun fare such as Tournedos Bourbon St., twin pan seared tenderloins with a mushroom brandy demi glaze sauce. Or Chicken Victoria a pan roasted chicken topped with roasted garlic, asparagus and pistachio butter sauce.
I have tried several of Bourbon Streets menu items on different occasions, but one I tend to favor is the Seafood Jambalaya, a mix or crawfish, shrimp, oysters and rice in a spicy sauce. Yes, I do like the “mud-bugs” and try to have them whenever I see them on the menu. I do have to add a little extra spice to Bourbon Street’s jumbo in the form of Tabasco sauce as I find their sauce a little mild. It seems that Cajun food isn’t Cajun food without the hot sauce.
Two other dishes I do like on Bourbon Street’s menu are the Crawfish Etouffee which has a very nice brown gravy and Shrimp Bourbon St, a sautéed shrimp with roasted garlic and Cajun spices in a white wine sauce.
This restaurant is in a quiet corner but it is on the radar for many locals so it does fill up at night and is a favorite of the Sunday after church crowd.
Bourbon Street does have a full bar as well as a nice selection of wines.
