What the Heck is National Bubba Day?

Musicians of New Orleans: Allen Toussaint 

As the best Cajun food restaurant, we feel it’s our duty to spread the culture of Louisiana to Texas, North Carolina, and beyond. Whether that means serving new dishes from the backwoods of Cajun country or sharing the latest on the unique culture of New Orleans proper, Razzoo’s Cajun Café has you covered.

Ready to learn a little about New Orleans culture? Good because we’d like you to meet a true legend in the New Orleans music scene: Allen Toussaint.

Few people have had the impact on the New Orleans music scene at Toussaint. Born in 1938 to working class parents in New Orleans, Toussaint began to pick up a love for piano at an early age. He honed his skill, and by the time he was in his teens, he was playing with piano alongside some of the top musicians in New Orleans.

From there, his piano career just seemed to take off. He went on his first tour in his early 20s, filling in for Huey Piano Smith, a known New Orleans bandleader.

Not only was Toussaint a talented piano player, but he also had a knack for songwriting and producing. By the time he was in his 30s, he was writing and producing songs like “Working in the Coal Mine” by Lee Dorsey, “Mother-in-Law” by Ernie K-Doe, and “Ooh Poo Pah Doo” by Jessie Hill – highlighted everyday life in a way people could understand and relate to. As a producer, Toussaint worked with the likes of Paul McCartney, Robert Palmer, and other legendary chart toppers of the day. While he never won a Grammy for any of his music (he did receive a Grammy Trustees Award in 2009 as a tribute to his long music career), many of his songs jumped the Billboard charts, with the widely popular “Southern Nights” by Glen Campbell jumping to No. 1 on the charts in 1977.

In his later years, Toussaint was an ambassador for New Orleans jazz music. Always performing in flashy suits and ties, Toussaint was a staple at the New Orleans Jazz Fest and had a huge impact on reviving New Orleans after Katrina.

Toussaint died in 2015, but his legacy lives on! Join us for lunch or dinner and Razzoo’s Cajun Café – the best Cajun restaurant in Texas – and you may just hear a song or two by Toussaint as you eat.

How to Eat Boiled Cajun Crawfish

It’s crawfish season, and Razzoo’s Cajun Café has the best crawfish in Texas!

We’ve learned over the years that some Texans who are new to eating crawfish find it a little daunting. Don’t you worry! Razzoo’s is here with step-by-step instructions to make Cajun crawfish eating easy as pie.

Step 1: Order Cajun Crawfish in Texas at Razzoo’s!

Head on over to your local Razzoo’s and order a giant helping of Cajun crawfish, shipped fresh from the Gulf of Mexico. It’s just $8.49/lb. and comes with boiled corn on the cob and boiled potatoes.

Step 2: Twist and Pull

PIck up a nice, big crawfish to start with; now hold the tail in one hand and the head in the other hand. With a firm grip on the head of the crawfish, gently twist the tail until it pops apart. Want to do like the true Cajuns do? Now suck the head! If you’re a little too squeamish for that, then just discard it. We won’t hold it against ya.

Step 3: Remove the Tail Meat

Now on to the good stuff! Peel off the first few rings (maybe 2 or 3) of the tail so that part of the tail meat is exposed. With one hand, pinch the end of the tail, and this should release the tail meat. Now all you have to do is gently pull it out and eat!

Step 4: Eat your Weight in Cajun Crawfish!

Razzoo’s prides itself on offering the freshest, tastiest crawfish around! Each order comes complete with butter for dipping (this is a must!), boiled potatoes, and boiled corn on the cob. Be sure to wash it all down with a craft beer, Gator Punch, or a Hurrycane. After all, it’s what the Cajuns would do.

See you this week for the best crawfish in Texas at Razzoo’s Cajun Café!

Mark Your Calendars: World Famous Breaux Bridge Crawfish Festival

At Razzoo’s, we not only love sharing our delicious Cajun fare with good, fine folks, but we love sharing other opportunities to indulge in Cajun traditions. Few things are more central to Cajun culture than crawfish, and if crawfish is your thang, put the world famous Breaux Bridge Crawfish Festival on your bucket list!

 

What is the Breaux Bridge Crawfish Festival?

In 1959, the Louisiana legislature named Breaux Bridge, Louisiana as the crawfish capital of the world. So in 1960, Breaux Bridge was looking for a way to showcase this to the world, and the Breaux Bridge Crawfish Festival was born. Each year, about 35,000 travel to Breaux Bridge to eat amazing Cajun food, hear the best Cajun and Zydeco music, and enjoy the culture of Louisiana.

 

What Events are at the Breaux Bridge Crawfish Festival?

·      Food! Bring your appetite! Sure, you’ve had crawfish before, but have you had it fried, turned into crawfish bisque, or served as a crawdog? We didn’t think so. At the festival, you’ll find crawfish served any way your heart could desire, along with all your other favorite Cajun dishes – red beans and rice, gumbo, shrimp, etc.

·      Music and Dancing: Cajun and Zydeco music are big in these parts, and not only will you hear the best Zydeco bands, but you can enjoy Cajun & Zydeco dance contests. Better yet – throw on your dancin’ shoes and join them!

·      Carnival: What festival is complete without a carnival?! Rides, a midway full of games, and more = fun for the whole family.

·      Shopping: Looking for something unique for your home? The Breaux Bridge Crawfish Festival showcases local artisans and craftsmen selling their wares.

·      Parade: Arrive early on Sunday to get a good spot for the parade! See the local fanfare and spectacular floats.

This year, the Breaux Bridge Crawfish Festival will take place May 5-7, so mark your calendars now! In the meantime, get your crawfish fix in Texas at Razzoo’s Cajun Café!

Brewery Spotlight: Karbach Brewing Co.

At Razzoo’s Cajun Cafe, we like to think of the folks at Karbach Brewing Co. as kindred spirits.

 

They don’t take themselves too seriously. They’re sarcastic. They’re hilarious. And above all, they’re just fun guys to party with.

 

Karbach Brewing Co. – located in Houston, Texas – is serious about making great beer, but not too serious about anything else. They love to party and have a good time, and to them, brewing craft beer is just an extension of the party. They swear up and down that if it becomes work, then they’re out. On to bigger and better things.

 

That fun and lighthearted spirit makes its way into every batch of beer Karbach brews, and oh it’s delicious. With names like Hopadillo IPA, Love Street, Sympathy for the Clown, and Rodeo Clown Double IPA, you can just feel the sense of whimsy infused into every sip.

 

So how did Karbach get it’s start?

 

It’s funny to think that all these delicious beers are here today because two ordinary guys followed their dreams. Beer distributors Ken Goodman and Chuck Robertson decided to try their hand at brewing their own beer on the same street where they were sourcing other people’s beer – Karbach St. The Karbach Brewing Co. took off and is now one of the premier craft breweries in the state of Texas.

 

If you’re ever down in Houston, Texas, be sure to check out the entire Karbach complete with the Karbach Restaurant & Patio, serving up a full menu of delicious dishes that pair perfectly with beer, and the Biergarten, where beer and live music make perfect harmony.

 

Can’t make it to Houston? We know a place where the food also pairs perfectly with beer! Razzoo’s Cajun Café that is! Razzoo’s proudly serves Karbach beer and many other fine craft beers. Stop in today and order a glass or two!

Who's In for Po'Boy Tuesday?!

Ever wondered how the “po’boy” got its name? And what exactly is a “po’boy” anyway?

As legend has it, po’boy sandwiches come from humble beginnings, dating back to New Orleans circa the early 1990s.

Railroads were the thing of the day, and railroad conductors were in high demand. Two such men – Benny and Clovis Martin – decided to abandon their train conducting ways in favor of owning a restaurant. Some months later, railroad conductors across Louisiana were on strike, and in order to support their buddies, the Martin brothers began serving free sandwiches to their railroad brethren – “po-boys” many called them. The hearty sandwiches they were served quickly took on the name of “po’boy sandwiches” and the name stuck.

Today, you don’t have to be a poor railroad conductor to appreciate the delicious, humble flavors of a po’boy sandwich!

$7 Po’Boy Tuesdays at Razzoo’s

At Razzoo’s Cajun Café, we love po’boy sandwiches so much, we have a whole day of the week dedicated to them! Every Tuesday from 11am – 3pm, enjoy our Po’Boy Lunch Special. It’s your choice of a fried popcorn shrimp, fried catfish, or blackened chicken po’boy – plus a drink – for a mere $7! You can barely get a fast food meal for that, and I assure you ours is much tastier.

Each po’boy sandwich is loaded with lettuce, tomato, onion, and pickles, your choice of meat, and served on an authentic French roll, just the way you’ll find it around New Orleans. If you’re lucky, we might even bring you some fries or jalapeno pups on the side.

See you this Tuesday at Razzoo’s Cajun Cafe for Po’Boy Tuesday! With 19 locations and counting around the state of Texas and North Carolina, there is sure to be a Razzoo’s nearby. Enjoy the best Cajun food for lunch, dinner, happy hour, and late night at Razzoo’s.
