You don't see much of this up North, so when we found this restaurant, I was thrilled! It's a cute little restaurant in downtown Naperville. As soon as I walked in, I instantly felt at home!
During one of the snail mail swaps, I was paired with Caitlin from Fierce, Fabulous, and Fit and she graciously sent me a gift certificate for this restaurant, we were thrilled!
The decor was lovely, all sorts of hot sauces on the walls, and the artwork on the opposite wall was amazing! I loved seeing folky paintings of my home state.
So, being that it was my only connection to home, we tried it again a couple of months later. This time, things were better. I had the shrimp enchiladas and the Mr. had the shrimp etoufee. Now, again, I'm picky but I did try his, and it was the same thing! Too much flour or something to make it look congealed again. It was good, don't get me wrong, but I don't know. Maybe my Mama's recipes spoiled me, but it just wasn't the same.
I think it's a fabulous restaurant, but I also think I was too excited to have "real Cajun food" that I didn't have to cook, and got my hopes up too high. Ah well, such is life, right?
