Review: Stuffed Cajun Meat Market and Specialty Foods

Located on Ranch Road 620, just a couple of blocks away from the Lakeline Mall sits "Stuffed." With all the charm one would expect from a strip mall storefront, this specialty market and deli more than makes up for its lack of ambiance by serving up a big ol' bowl of Big Easy bliss.

Red beans and Rice, Etouffee, Gumbo, Jambalaya, Po-boys, Boudin sausage and more are all made from scratch and the ingredients change based on the season. We asked about crawfish, but because the weather has been rough in the Gulf Coast recently, the little buggers aren't quite big enough yet. Stuffed told us that they should have them in by the truck full in the next couple of weeks. Give them a call to find out when they come in.

In the meantime, are you looking for something quick for lunch? You'd be hard pressed to find a sandwich better than the classic muffuletta. It's basically a New Orleans/ Sicilian submarine: round sesame bread - crisp on the outside, soft on the inside - is filled with salami, ham, mortadella, provolone and mozzarella cheese, then smeared with a savory green/black olive salad spread and heated slightly to make everything melt together. It's warm, melty, crunchy, sharp, and just downright awesome. 

In addition to the great food they serve in the deli, Stuffed also has a variety of prepared foods in their freezers that you can't find anywhere else: Chicken breast stuffed with jambalaya, alligator fillets,  frog legs, whole rabbit, and duck are part of the usual faire. The ever popular "turducken" can be ordered for holiday entertaining and now that Mardi Gras is just around the corner, Stuffed is working overtime making king cakes. But order early, as they sell out quick. 

They also have a new location on Brodie Lane, if you are looking for more of a sit-down-type restaurant.

If you are craving for Cajun cuisine, and you want quality food without any pretense or fanfare, give Stuffed a try.
