Perhaps my biggest gripe with the Valley’s great restaurant scene is the lack of good Cajun restaurants, especially in central Phoenix.

  • But that’s not to say there aren’t at least some great options.

1 great restaurant: Flavors of Louisiana, 13025 W. Rancho Santa Fe Blvd. Located in Avondale, at 315 W. Elliott Road, Tempe. It’s worth the drive to the West Valley.

  • You can’t go wrong with traditional Cajun dishes like jambalaya, red beans and rice, gumbo, and po’boys.
  • Last time I was there, I tried the Jolly Bron. This is blackened red snapper covered in a white wine sauce with rice, crab and crawfish. I was not disappointed.
  • Don’t forget to take the beignets home for dessert!

Other options: There are several places to enjoy delicious Cajun-style seafood boils, including Angry Crab (another favorite of mine) and Harbor Seafood Cajun House (which I haven’t tried). Pappadeaux also has delicious seafood.

  • I have never been to Baby Kay’s Cajun Kitchen in Mesa. We still mourn the closure of our Phoenix store nearly a decade ago. I was able to order the jambalaya.
  • Krazy Cajun Seafood & Hibachi is a relatively recent addition to central Phoenix, and although it has solid gumbo, most of the menu appears decidedly non-Cajun.

please tell me: Where else in the Valley can you get good Cajun food?
