First off, I have to admit I am biased towards any restaurant that has the word Creole or Cajun in it’s name. While there is a difference between the two types of cuisine, simply invoking either of the words can cause me to salivate and I might steer my car involuntarily into the parking lot, which is nearly what happened one evening in mid November when I drove past the N”Awlins Creole Cafe on State Road 267 in Avon, Indiana.
My girlfriend Deborah and I love to try new dining experiences, so when we saw the N’Awlins Creole Cafe we knew we had to turn in, and our serendipitous stop was more than we could have hoped for!
What we had discovered was a new Avon restaurant that is sure to be a favorite of ours for some time to come! N’Awlins Creole Cafe is a small, family owned restaurant on the northwest corner of 200N & 267. It’s clean, affordable..and full of fabulous authentic creole cuisine!
Starting with alligator sausage for an appetizer, an entree of crawfish etouffe, and a side dish of amazing potato salad…made with homemade mayonnaise…all served by very friendly staff, made up of family members! Everything was perfect!
If you’re unfamilair with Creole cuisine, there are more traditional dishes like catfish or shrimp, but I encourage you to step outside your comfort zone and pile up some Jambalaya, Red Beans & Rice or Alligator Sausage for a treat you won’t soon forget.
N’Awlins Creole Cafe is a terrific addition to the Avon, Indiana dining landscape, and I look forward to many awesome meals there in the future….perhaps I’ll see you there!
