Another Asian Cajun restaurant, this small cafe in the shopping center that houses Hong Kong Supermarket is famous for its overstuffed New Orleans-style po'boys filled with fried shrimp, oysters, catfish, soft-shell crab, hot sausage, or Cajun roast beef. The menu is small and features such classic dishes as gumbo, jambalaya, crawfish or shrimp étouffée, and fried catfish. Notable menu items include steamed cherry clams in a spicy Cajun broth and Northern Louisiana-style meat pies filled with seasoned ground pork and deep-fried to flaky, golden perfection. These folks also offer seafood boils served by the pound and priced according to market; your choice of shrimp, crawfish (in season), blue crab, snow crab legs, or king crab legs comes with potatoes, corn, and a side of garlic butter for dipping. For the kids, Crazy Cajun offers popcorn shrimp and corn dogs. There's a full bar serving margaritas and other tropical-sounding cocktails, plus cold beers including Abita Amber.
