CRAWFISH TIME! But where to get it?
Wells it officially time to eat crawfish....But what place makes it best? Im in the mesquite area so nothing WAY to far away from here. Whats the best place to eat crawfish?
Don't know helpful this id, but try to find a function or party that is specifically being held as a crawfish boil. Sometimes there are local events where for like $30 bucks you can eat crawfish and drink beer. That way you get the little mudbugs fresh out of the pot, at an event that is set up for just enjoying the critters. Restaurants tend to have them sitting around so they aren't plump, and it can pretty expensive to eat the amount that would satisfy me.
Papadeaux's has 'em - $7.95 1-1/4 lbs, selected days of the week.
Also oysters - $6/doz, Thur only. Posted as TX Gulf Coast.
Had mudbugs and oysters on the 1/2 shell at Pappadeaux on Oaklawn tonight. The mudbugs were $7.99 LB and were good. Not great mind you but, good. They were kind of small and not too spicy and had a butter wash which made them kind of slippery to handle and consequently more difficult to eat.
The star of dinner were the oysters. They were the absolute best I've had in years! They came from Louisiana and were large, plump, and clean. $10.99 a dozen and worth every penny. Thursdays after 5:00PM they're only $5.99 a dozen. I will be there for that!
You could try a sweep the swamp pizza from Johnny's in Addison. It's a pizza i grew up with, so i am not sure if it is an acquired taste or not, but it is worth a try, lol. It is a Louisiana mini pizza chain (beware, the pizza there is definitely not like any authentic new york style or any other style of pizza that i know) that just opened here. During crawfish season, they always have sweep the swamp pizza with crawfish, shrimp and andouille sausage.
