Crawfish and Noodles, Little Saigon, Houston

Cajun Crawfish

The good thing about eating a pound of crawfish is that there really isn't that much meat after you shell those darned things, thus leaving some stomach space to try other items. So I took advantage of that by coming to another Vietnamese-Cajun place around the corner called Crawfish and Noodles (11360 Bellaire Blvd, 281-988-8098), just to see if it would be any different.

Sure, the name was strange, but the idea was that one could get a piping hot bowl of phở alongside a serving of crawfish. Actually, this place was much more Vietnamese than that Wild Cajun place, as evidenced not only by the huge selection of Vietnamese dishes on the menu, but also the fact that they had clean chopsticks sitting upright in a metal container on each table. Cool.

And the good thing was that I could much more easily suck out the headfat of these bad boys than I could at Wild Cajun. It still wasn't as buttery as the Boiling Crab (nor did it have the onions that Wild Cajun had), but hey - I could get a soda chanh here to help wash it all down. How cool is that?
