Um, possibly a good find.....? any input on Bayou Cajun?

  • 1

I know - it's in the Gaviidae Common food court next to a McDonald's, not typically chowhound territory. That had turned me off until today, but this afternoon I decided to give it a chance and was pleasantly surprised. It is, wait for it, a Cajun place that also serves Korean food. I only had the "bourbon chicken" sandwich, which was better than I expected (and under $5), but the lady behind the counter was super nice and told me she was from Korea and then pointed out that they served a few Korean dishes too, including bulgogi. I can't wait to go back to try those. I've been wanting for a long time to eat more Korean stuff, and I didn't know of any in downtown Minneapolis other than the pretty good bulgogi sandwich at Brothers Deli, but now in just the last couple of days I've found two spots for it right in Gaviidae common - this Bayou place and Nicol's deli (they have a decent bi bim bap).

Anyhoo, what I wanted to ask was, has anyone else checked out Bayou Cajun? Any experiences - good/bad?

  1. I've been there a few times. Good, if not great--and reasonably priced. I haven't tried the Korean items yet. The last time I was there, I said 'thank you' in Korean (Kamsahamnida) to the woman at the register. She giggled...the same reaction I get when I speak Singhalese to my Sri Lankan mother-in-law. Must have something to do with my Minny-soda whiteness.
