Recently after church, Larry and I decided to get some lunch. On the way home, we chose Pappadeaux's Seafood Kitchen. We've driven by many times and Larry was in the mood for fish...so why not?!
menu is huge - but because of the prices - we strictly stuck to the lunch menu. There were a lot of interesting options - many with a Cajun twist: alligator, frog legs, gumbo, etouffee and more!
capers & basil in beurre blanc, with spaghetti squash.
I don't normally get tilapia because it's a fairly cheap fish - but all the toppings made it something I had to try. The tilapia was fine - cooked well but not overdone. The crab was really sweet and delicious - I do love crab. Then the sauce was so light but full of flavor - really paired well with the fish. It didn't overwhelm the delicate crab. And my favorite part was the spaghetti squash - it was really sweet! The texture was akin to mashed potatoes but so sweet and felt healthier. I really enjoyed this dish.
I also was conscious of serving size and kept half of mine for the next day - I heated it up for lunch with some of Larry's green beans and had a lot of drooling coworkers stopping by my desk!
Why Should You Go? Well - it's pricey - so I would definitely keep it as a special occasion restaurant. The seafood was well-prepared and unique. We didn't really try any of the Cajun fare and they also have a large selection of fried seafood. We might be back...after a bonus at work or something.
