ON THE MENU – Touch of Cajun Café takes you inside menu update that retains customer favorites – Port Arthur News

NEDERLAND – Touch of Cajun Café will be making some changes to the menu over the next month, according to manager Jordon Horn.

The cafe, located at 1147 Boston Ave in Nederlad., has been one of the area’s most popular restaurants for the past few years.

“We’re looking to add a few specialty items,” Horn said. “A dish I’m working on at the moment is a grilled redfish. We’re still working on some of the issues, but it will be with a lemon butter crab vermouth. We’re going to remove a few things. »

Horn said fans of the restaurant shouldn’t worry about losing popular dishes.

Touch of Cajun Café is best known for its boiled seafood.

“Our barbecue fried crabs are extremely popular,” he said. “Our motto is ‘something for everyone.’ We make fried baskets, burgers, pasta, steaks and a bit of everything.

Horn said the community has been very supportive.

“When this street is busy, we’re busy,” Horn said of Boston Avenue. “Whenever there is foot traffic, people always stop and have a bite to eat. The food is really delicious.

The cafe also offers job vacancies for many positions.

“I try to rebuild the kitchen with new ideas,” he said. “We want cooks to be passionate about what they do and serve the best food possible. We can use crawfish helpers, line cooks, prep cooks and dishwashers.

With crawfish season underway, Touch of Cajun has already seen waves of people demanding the delicacy.

“In the evening there is not even a place to sit down,” said Horn. “I would say that in a day we do between 10 and 20 bags. A bag usually weighs 30 to 35 pounds. People wait all year for the crayfish to come back. This year, we had volume problems because the weather fluctuated a lot. Fishermen couldn’t catch the volume we wanted. But later in the season we’re going to run a trailer here and we can cook about 1,000 pounds at a time.

The manager said the restaurant is also trying to be more cohesive.

“When you walk in, you’re going to be served something that tastes the same as last week,” he said. “There will always be friendly faces. The environment is truly southern and down to earth.
