About/Contact Us

Southern Louisiana is an eclectic mix of many different cultures, including American Indian, African, English, French, Italian, intense, mesmerizing flavor in our country's enormous melting pot.  Only in our case,  the water has come  from the mighty Mississippi River. The heat has been carefully applied from the Delta sun, and the spices are specially made and sold in the New Orleans French Market. 

Regardless if you are visiting Lake Charles, Lafayette, or New Orleans, you are guaranteed to be forever changed by our cuisine, people, and hospitality.  It is like no other place on earth.

If you don't bleed purple, green, and gold after you leave here, you just haven't "made enough groceries," eaten at a "Cuchon d'Lait" (pig roasting), tasted a "beignet" (donut without holes) or drank a cup of "cafe au lait" (coffee w/chicory and milk).  But most importantly you haven't lived.  So without any further hesitation, "Laissez les bons temps rouler" or as everyone else in the world says, "Let the good times roll."
