My one and only Cajun experience was this summer. A family trip to Marble Falls led me to an authentic Cajun restaurant. As amazing as it was, the distance is too great for other trips. 

Fortunately, I discovered a fantastic Cajun restaurant locally. Cajun Creations, located in the same shopping center as the movie theatre, has captured my heart with the aroma of fried catfish and gumbo.

Let me tell you, I was amazed by the quality of the food. Alana, the editor, and I ordered the Crawfish Queso with homemade chips. Initially I was skeptical; I had sampled crawfish one other time and from that experience I had sworn off of crawfish.

 This queso was unlike anything I had ever had before. It started out with cheese and a little spice, and then erupted on my tongue with the explosive power of crawfish! 

Now I realize the thought of a sea bug in your queso may seem daunting but if anything the crawfish made the queso better. The tail meat added texture to an otherwise creamy sauce and gave the queso a flavor I hadn’t realized was missing from typical queso. 

As we finished off our appetizer we anxiously awaited our main course, the Shrimp Po’boy and the Fried Catfish. The shrimp on the po’boy were so enormous that we assumed we were mistakenly given catfish. 

The catfish was by far the best I’ve ever had. The batter was seasoned to perfection and had just the right amount of spice. The quality of fish used far surpassed my expectations; it wasn’t muddy at all and was flaky and perfectly cooked.

The restaurant is owned by a married couple so dedicated to good food and service that one of them is always at the restaurant. As well as committed to amazing food, they had all of their recipes tested at a facility next to Texas Tech to guarantee amazing flavor. 

I’d recommend Cajun Creations to anyone who likes food. They have something for everyone and being adventurous definitely pays off here.
