Foodie Friday: Broussard's Cajun Cuisine

Part of Feasting on the Divine is enjoying delicious food! You know those dishes where the first bite takes you to a happy place and sometimes even cry a little on the inside? Oh you don't? Okay maybe it's just me!

Once a month, I'll share a new dining delight. I hear you saying, "Well, what about fitness, Trinka?" I know. I know. However, it would basically be sacrilegious for a Georgia girl NOT to indulge in great food. As Blanche would say, "it would be simply unsouthern." (true fans will know her). Besides if fitness is a lifestyle, you shouldn't deprive yourself. Enjoy it and exercise even more to burn it off! Soooo, in a way, it's like motivation. Yeah, motivation...

Okay so where did I feast this month? My niece Chelsea (over on Contemporary Teal #plug) suggested it for lunch one day. Her mother and I drove over to Cape Giradeau, Missouri to visit her, and we decided to dine at Broussard's Cajun Cuisine!


A cozy restaurant with lots of character, Broussard's is over 25 years old. Right away I love two things about this Cape Giradeau charm: 1). It's not part of a chain. 2) Behind the building is the Mighty Mississippi River!

We were greeted with smiles and sat in the bar area while we waited for our table. Looking around you could see people from all walks of life--families, couples, young and old. And the smell? Intoxicating! I was so ready to eat. Thankfully, our wait was less than 10 minutes. Even though the "joint was jumping," our server was pleasant, courteous and knowledgeable of the menu. (It's just a quirk of mine when a server has no clue about the menu.) She even gave me tips on how to eat crawfish, but I wasn't feeling brave enough to order them that day.



Our lunch selections were:
Cajun 3-Way Sampler--pic Courtesy of Broussard's

Loaded Bacon & Cheddar Potato Skins
Shrimp Creole
Fried Catfish-pic courtesy of Broussard's

Annnnnd there may have been some Shrimp Etouffee on the table. Annnnd there may be a reason why I had to "borrow" pics from Broussard's to show you what the entrees looked like. Annnd we'll just leave it at that! The food was wonderful!! We even had leftovers to enjoy later.

This Georgia girl is thankful the Broussards had the vision to bring the art of southern cuisine to the Midwest. Kudos to the owners that have upheld the legacy and spirit of the restaurant!  I will definitely visit again soon! It's worth the 2-hour drive. Plus my niece is there! Sorry about that honey! You're worth the 2-hour drive. *hehehe*
