Crawfish Shack Seafood: Cajun Classics With A Twist

July 23, 2014 12:46 pm

Crawfish Shack Seafood chef and owner Hieu Pham fuses the influences of classic Vietnamese cuisine with those of classic Southern fare to create an inventive menu that's earned a number of fans in Atlanta.

Don’t get us wrong, this isn’t fusion cuisine; the po’ boy would probably pass muster in New Orleans, but the remoulade has a spicy Vietnamese food influence, and the nuoc mia—freshly squeezed sugar cane—is an alternative to sweet tea. The eclectic mix of flavors has won the restaurant a number of local fans!

Check the Crawfish Shack Seafood website for hours, menus, and more information.
