Cheap Eats 2009


Portland is home to many Cajun eateries, but none is more authentic than this shrine to landlocked crustaceans on Southeast 82nd Avenue, buried in the armpit of a lackluster strip mall. While bayou classics like dirty rice ($5), chicken and sausage gumbo ($10), and crunchy fried catfish ($12) are heart-stoppingly good, it’s the crawfish ($5.50 for a half pound), boiled in brilliantly spicy, sop-worthy brine, that steals the show. Don’t dig on “mud bug”? No problem. My Brother’s Crawfish also boils blue crab, Gulf shrimp and Manila clams in an unforgettably fiery Cajun way.
