Over in Miramar there’s a new-ish spot called LouZiana Food that serves up some mighty fine cajun eats. This post used to be NY on Rye (which reverted back to just being a food truck) as well as numerous other deli’s in the past. Hopefully LouZiana Food sticks and stays here!
They have plenty of seating inside and a few tables outside if you’d like to enjoy a little bit of sunshine.
They also have their own cajun seasoning if you want a little extra spice with your food!
On my first visit I decided to check out the Shrimp Po Boy Sandwich [$10.25]. The po boy sandwiches are served on a french baguette with remoulade sauce, lettuce and tomatoes. You get a generous portion of fried shrimp in the sandwich. I added a side of fries for $2.75 and this was more than enough food. I couldn’t even finish the fries! The shrimp were nice and plump and had a good flavor. The bread was a bit meh to me though. It was a little too chewy and the bread was served cold (untoasted). The fries were fresh out of the fryer and were quite tasty. They got a little spicy for me with that cajun seasoning on top but I still enjoyed them.
On my second visit I got the Shrimp and Catfish Platter [$12.05]. I figured since I wasn’t crazy about the bread then the way to go would be to get a platter. This one was perfect since it came with half shrimp and half catfish nuggets. It also comes with cajun fries and is quite a lot of food! The remoulade sauce comes on the side for dipping. The shrimp were tasty but what I really liked was the little pieces of catfish! The catfish was nice and sweet with a little crunchy batter on them. I liked this dish so much that I came back in the following week and ordered the exact same thing instead of trying something new. I get so full after eating this though that I haven’t had a chance to try their beignets yet, but I’m hoping to soon!
LouZiana Food is a nice addition to the mix of restaurants in the Miramar area. It’s a little different from the other restaurant offerings and they have a good mix of seafood and other Louisiana staples for you to try.
