It is always great getting to meet the creator and owner of a restaurant and learning where the concept came from. For the owner of The Lost Cajun, it was wanting to bring his Louisiana roots and cooking style to Colorado. I loved hearing his story of starting the first Lost Cajun in Frisco, Colorado.
At this event I got to try just about everything that they offer on the menu. It began with a sampling of seafood gumbo, chicken and sausage gumbo, red beans and rice, jambalaya, lobster bisque and crawfish etouffee. What a great way to start! Everything tasted so good, but my two favorite were the lobster bisque and the seafood gumbo. After the sampling, we got to try all of the appetizers that they have on the menu. This included, but wasn’t limited to, fried alligator, fried catfish, okra, BBQ shrimp and fried oysters. Again, everything was so amazing. The best was shockingly the fried okra and the catfish. Both were not heavily breaded and had great seasoning.
After all of that, I was already full, but they then offered any dish off the menu plus a bowl of gumbo. I went with the cat-touffee. Basically this is fried catfish smothered in crawfish etouffee over a bead of rice. I think I ate about two bites before I had to get a box. It was just so much food! Overall I am a fan.
