Although I’m not a fan of overly spicy food, I do like the flavors and spices used in Cajun food. Lola’s is another restaurant I’d been meaning to get to, and I finally did last week. It’s a small restaurant, with a clean, cute interior. Unfortunately it wasn’t very crowded when I was there, but it was also a Thursday night.
To start, I had to try the gumbo, and I found it to be quite good! I’m certainly not an expert on gumbo, but it had an extremely meaty, rich broth, and was full of plenty of rice, meat, and shrimp. I liked the fact that it wasn’t overly salty, yet still quite tasty.
For an entree, I chose the bronzed catfish and grits. The catfish was spicy, but not overly so, and was quite good, although I almost wish there’s been more of it! The smoked gouda grits were also quite good, rich and cheesy. Accompanying the catfish and grits was an andouille sausage and mushroom ragu. The sausage had a kick to it, and the sauce was rich, also with a bit of spice, and complemented the rest of the dish quite well.
All in all, a good experience! I’d definitely return if I was in the area and craving Cajun food…
