One day driving down the road to the good ol Wally World we saw a sign for a new restaurant in our little ol home town of Hendersonville, TN.
The Lost Cajun – could it be true. Could there be a little Cajun spice in our neck of the woods? My boys love spicy food and I love love regional specialties think shrimp and grits (Carolinas) Gumbo (Louisiana) Lobster Roll (Maine) and huge steaks (Texas). So we had to give it a shot.
When we were seated, they brought us samples of their main dishes/sauces so we could check out what we liked. I did have some little bites but roux is made with flour and well that’s just not safe for my poor poor tummy. I will say though if there were a pill I could take for relief, the lobster bisque would be my all time favorite gluten cheat meal! It was the creamiest thing and so decadent. I could eat it non stop.
We did however go ahead and order all this yumminess.
Picnic style dining at its finest. Red beans and rice with extra andouille for me. Catfish étouffée for my man. Jambalaya for the kid! There were some beignets for dessert but I couldn’t get pics they went too fast and yes this gluten free momma took the chance and had just a bite and it was soooo yummy. I didn’t feel great the next day but it wasn’t too horrible. The guys declared great food. Not quite spicy enough for them. But good all the same.
So if you are interested in trying a little Nawlins’ in your neck of the woods here is a better pic with their information. The facebook link is for our local location and the web link is for the corporate market so you can find a location close to you!
I hope you will give it a shot! It was totally worth it. We all had a great meal and of course family time is always special!
Until next time familia mangia!
