It is right around the corner – Mardi Gras. Also known as Fat Tuesday, individuals around Circle City will be gorging themselves on culinary delights come Tuesday, March 8. Being one of those individuals, I am wondering where to eat. When I think about Fat Tuesday, I think about noshing on Cajun/Creole food. I love the fried po’boys and jambalaya. Oh, and I adore paczki (a Polish pastry, stuffed with goodness) too. But where to find some of these treats? Just a few places to consider that specialize in Louisiana fare:
- Mudbug’s Cajun Cafe (Carmel) – they will be celebrating all week with King Cake and buckets of beer. I’ve had the po’boys and gumbo, but there is a variety to choose from.
- Yats (4 locations in Indy, check their site for the one nearest you) – I’ve got to be honest, never been here. What is everyone’s opinion?
- Bar at the Ambassador (downtown) – I dined there a few weeks ago, and I don’t see it again in my near future. But that is just me – is there a reason why I should?
What will I be eating this year? Not sure yet. I think I am craving bouillabaisse – a French inspired seafood delight with broth that should be soaked up with some bread. And if I can get my hands on some king cake, that would be good too. The cream cheese pastry (my preference of filling) is always so buttery and divine, everything a pastry should be.
Any suggestions on the best Cajun/Creole eats in Indy? Where are you eating for the holiday?
