Turtle Soup outside of NOLA

cajungirl Jul 10, 2009 09:30 AM

Outside of the place in New Roads, has anyone eaten any GOOD turtle soup outside of NOLA? I see that there is a relatively new place in Lafayette called Jolie's that features Creole cooking and has it on the menu. Anyone try it?

    Havenot tried that one but Cafe Vermillion has a good one. Ruth's Chris in BR does a creditable one.

      Have not yet tried Jolie's..... I understand it is run by the same group as the Blue Dog, which I personally think stinks, but just may have to give them a shot. Some like the turtle soup at Cafe Des Amis in Breaux Bridge. I found it too spicy...yes spicy, don't know where they got that idea.

        Thanks to both of you. I like Cafe V, but haven't had their soup. Let me know if you try Jolie's, T.
