Cajun Kitchen

Posted by


Cajun Kitchen has been feeding hungry tummies at festivals and events, including the Laneway Festival, since 2009. Recently it has a more permanent address, where southern food lovers can get their spice fix.

Having spent three years in New Orleans during high school, Cajun’s co-owner Geeti Persson has always loved the flavours of the American south. But it was only after moving back to Australia and wanting to do something different that Cajun Kitchen came about.

Don’t be fooled by the relaxed interior; the food that is produced here is top notch. Persson and Briggs are so passionate about producing authentic Cajun food of the highest quality, that it took them six different bakeries to find the perfect bread for their New Orleans Po’Boys.

Not wanting to compromise on anything, they also make all their sauces and mayo from scratch and aim to use as much local produce as possible – like the Coffee Basic beans in the grinder, which hail from Castlemaine, Victoria.

From sliders (starting at $6.5) like the ‘Slammer’, consisting of pulled pork, slaw and spicy Cajun sauce, to the Creole Fish Taco ($10.9) with your choice of Cajun or jalapeno rémoulade, you’re bound to love everything you order.

At the recommendation of the staff we tried the Bubba Gump Po’Boy ($10.90), and oh bubba was it good. The crispy Cajun spiced shrimp was perfectly balanced with the zesty, creamy mayo, while the slaw gave it the perfect burst of freshness. Washed down with a homemade lemon and mint ice-tea ($2.50) you couldn’t have asked for much more. Gluten free, vegetarian and vegan-friendly options are available.

Whether you’re a Cajun fan or just looking for something yummy, Cajun Kitchen has got you covered.
