Django Unchained and Dinner at Baby Kay's
|Gumbo and Jambalaya at Baby Kay's|
One of the only things we had in common with the horribly villainous Calvin Candie is our love of the French, but since we did French food last week, we decided to go Franco American down to the Bayou for some Cajun cookin' at Baby Kay's. The Cajun staple in Towne and Country has been a favorite of ours for years for their tasty gumbo and sides.
Almost everything on Baby Kay's menu has that addictingly mouth-burning Cajun spice. We absolutely love the hearty duck and andouille sausage gumbo pared with the jambalaya in the Serena combo. We're also big fans of the pitcher left on each table of your chosen beverage, so you don't have to wait between refills. Normally we think this is cheesy, but when your mouth is flaming, it's nice to have plenty of drinks around. Thankfully too, their dense, sweet, whiskey-infused bread pudding is a great way to finish off after a super spicy dinner.
While Baby Kay's food is great, our biggest wish is that they hire a professional cleaning crew and interior decorator to give the inside of that place a good revamping. You can dim the lights all you want, but it doesn't hide the water stains on the ceiling and half-assed mish mash of wall art. The owners could take a cue from Tarantino and focus on aesthetics as well as substance a little more in general.
