Bud’s Louisiana Cafe
Finding a legit Creole restaurant outside of Louisiana is hard to do! Fortunately San Diego is blessed to have Bud’s Louisiana Cafe. Oddly nestled in an industrial area of Kearney Mesa (Viewridge Ave), Bud’s is a must visit! The cafe is a small casual bistro style restaurant with top-shelf service. Reservations are recommended.
Bud’s menu includes a fantastic selection of thoughtful entrees. Not a single thing looked or sounded unappealing. I chose “A Taste of New Orleans”. Includes a generous portion of crawfish etouffee smothered over rice, plus blackened catfish. In lieu of catfish you can get it with a fried soft-shell crab. This dish was simply exquisite! Creole comfort food at its finest.
