Do you want to explore cajun foods ? Then this itineray is for you :)
So in our 1 day weekend trip, we want to explore the cajun foods and a visit to beautiful Lake Martin. In, Lafayette, there are several tours for cajun foods. There are several options for taking cajun food tours such as original cajun food tour, all day cajun experience, and around the world in acadiana taste tour.
We took the original cajun food tour. The cost was 59 bucks per person. But one problem is that they will not operate the tour if its not 8 people. Because in their car, the capacity is 8 . We hop on the bus around 10: 30 PM. The tour was 3 hours. We taste many Cajun originals like boudin, king cake, etouffee, gumbo, fried seafood, cracklin’ and more! .
Restaurents we visit :
Boudin King cakes
Bon Tempes Grill
Old tyme grocery
Louisiana crawfish time
It was a wonderful food tour and probably the best we have been on. Marie (tour oeprator) is a great tour guide and taught us so much about the local food and history
