NVM Review

(May 2008)

By Warren Rojas

Bring the best of the bayou to you with a hearty crawfish salad ($10) populated with chopped bacon, grape tomatoes, scores of fried crawfish tails and a semi-sweet Creole mustard dressing. Amp up the heat with some spicetacular red beans and rice ($13) loaded with diced andouille and boasting a bonus grilled link draped across the already combustible dish.

(June/July 2007)

By Warren Rojas

The superbly spicy red beans and rice-bearing cubes of fiery andouille sausage mixed with rice, beans, scallions and a searing Cajun sauce, all crowned with a bonus grilled sausage link-should sate any ragin' Cajuns until their next trip home.

N’awlins Poboy (Honorable Mention)

(June/July 2006)

By Warren Rojas

A neighborhood favorite, Okra's serves up a wide array of authentic po'boys-including fried shrimp, fried oysters, blackened catfish, grilled chicken, grilled andouille sausage and a "beef debris"-but only at lunch. A half po'boy is $6, while a full serving climbs to $10.
