our work cafe had fresh crawfish in a lot of the specials early this week, and my coworkers and i were talking about how they must have gotten a good deal locally (they source locally).
i wish i knew where, though.
there is a cajun vietnamese place near me (i'm far northwest) that i've been meaning to try, so i better hurry up before the season is over.
Prices should be starting to come down with the warmer weather and post Easter demand drop. I checked the price for the guy that brings them from SE Texas for me and they have dropped nearly 40% in the last two or three weeks.
Also, you can order them from Seafood Lover in Beaumont. He Lone Star overnights them and they hold up amazingly well. I think the shipping cost something like $20 per sack.
I thought that I'd replied to this, but for some reason, it was deleted. Based on your post, we went to Pappadeaux's on Monday and got 7 lbs for 2.25 people. We had a good time, and our 2 year old loved the crawfish and crayons. It was a madhouse, but that is the best deal in town right now (or at least before Apr 30th). The boil was very good and spicy. We had a wedge salad on the side - tantalizingly good and absolutely zero nutritional value.
Cypress Grill - hot on the table (and DEE-licious) last week were 6.95/lb, or 16.95 for three pounds. Not the biggest bargain, but fresh, hot, sweet and yummy. Plus, the biggest mojito I have ever been served for three dollars. And, boudin balls.
