Jambalaya, gumbo, spicy crawfishboudin and bread pudding, these are just a few things you can sample of Southwest Louisiana's famous Cajun French and Creole cuisine. Cajuns in Southwest Louisiana like to tap their toes to good music while dining, and several restaurants in the Southwest Louisiana area feature live Cajun tunes almost every night of the week.
