Bon Appétit in San Diego

Bud’s Louisiana Café
4320 Viewridge Avenue
San Diego (858) 573-2837

San Diego Chef-owner Bud Deslatte describes his cuisine as "authentic Creole and Cajun," and his Bud's Louisiana Cafe promotes "great American food in the New Orleans manner." The Big Easy native's newest local eatery fills Monday through Saturday (closed Sunday) with avid fans of the seafood gumbo, which is jammed with crayfish tails, shrimp, crab, and andouille sausage. Filling Po' Boy sandwiches boast house made spreads: tangy remoulade with fried shrimp, barbecue-scented mayonnaise with pulled house-smoked pork shoulder, rich gravy with the sloppy roast beef sandwich, and so forth. A wedge of Creole pecan pie ends the party on a Mardi Gras note.
