If you love Cajun food with an interesting twist, take a look at what’s on the menu at Hook & Boil. Not only is their food delectable, it’s all made with local ingredients — even the crawfish are caught fresh daily from the owner’s family farm. One of the dishes that truly stands out on the menu is the boudin egg rolls.

Boudin egg rolls and Parish Brewing beers are a taste of Broussard.

This might sound a little strange, but we assure you, these egg rolls are worth every bite. The outside appears to be a delicately fried egg roll, but the inside is what makes this dish great: boudin mixed with a little pepper jack cheese. If that’s not enough to sell you, it’s topped off with a sticky-sweet sauce, drizzled over the egg rolls for your pleasure.

Other great dishes from Hook & Boil include a mind-blowing Oyster Rockefeller dish with spicy creamed spinach and jumbo lump crab, boiled shrimp or crawfish with a choice of sides and a variety of burgers including the option to build your own burger. If you save room for desert, try the white chocolate bread pudding with pecan praline sauce.
