One thing that I liked was the displays through out the front of the restaurant. Swamp Pop is my all time favorite drink. So to see that when I walked in, made me feel right at home. I later found out that the owner of the restaurant is the creator of Swamp Pop how cool is that?
The next starter was the Mimi Mac & Cheese. Wow. Old fashioned style mac n cheese with the long noodles. The mac n cheese was creamy and cheesy. The mac was topped with additional cheese that was gooey when served and green onions.
The mac n cheese was bubbly when placed on the table. Pipping hot! A very good mac n cheese. Comfort food at its finest.
After trying those two starters, my mom and I were so excited to try the Poboys. Pops has the traditional Poboys like Shrimp or Oysters. The other Poboy options are creative and innovative in that they are not what you might normally mix together.
Above is the Boudreaux which is a buttermilk fried catfish with pickled okra tartar sauce and blue cheese coleslaw served on a Langlinas Bread which is made local.
The catfish was fried perfectly. But unfortunately the flavors didn’t work for me. I was bit underwhelmed by this Poboy.
The catfish had no punch to it. I didn’t taste the tartar sauce at all if it was on it. The coleslaw was ok, the good thing is that it wasn’t overpowering as blue cheese can be sometimes.
