Booda's Bistro 345 Broad Street Lake Charles, LA 70601-4223 - (337) 564-5402

Went there for Sunday brunch. They offer the whole menu with a few specials. Eggs Benedict and Shrimp & Grits which seems to be the hot idea for brunch around here recently. In this part of La it should Grillades and Grits. Shrimp and grits is basically low country (Gullah) food. The low country in question is the Carolina coast. Gullah is their version of Creole food in the broadest sense.

Below is Joe's version. Four 10-15 boiled shrimp folded into a cheese sauce with onions, bell pepper and mushrooms atop a boat of white grits. Very rich and very filling but to tell you the truth I would rather have smaller shrimp that had been cooked in the sauce. Still not bad for the price.
