NOTE: This post was supposed to be part of our big road trip series, but it somehow got lost in the shuffle.
Road Food had lots of great-sounding recommendations for lunch in Lafayette, but we were finally swayed by the plethora of crawfish options at Prejean’s. Plus, it was just off the highway.
They had an impressive display of schwag.
Ben and I shared the Crawfish Platter: fried crawfish, crawfish Etouffee, crawfish pie, crawfish boulettes, crawfish bisque, fries, dirty rice, and fried crawfish salad. The highlight may have actually been the dirty rice.
I couldn’t resist this commemorative coozie.
Also, for future reference, you will be laughed at (as we were) if you come home from Lafayette and tell people that you went to PREE-GENE’s (especially if they are from Lafayette, as they were). Say it like it’s French.
