Kitchenary

Hello ladies and gentlemen hope you are having a great day. I am back in Louisiana after two months away. Yes! The posts you saw in June and May were old posts. But this one is fresh, a cool place I went last week, on Friday.

My mom suggested to go to a place called The kitchenary Cafe. When we entered I was kind of confuse because it was a store, but then I saw a small restaurant inside. It is located at 456 Heymann Blvd., Lafayette, LA 70593, and you have to bring your kids to try the food there.

They don’t have lemonade, so I decided to have water and red beans and rice with cornbread. They gave me my food very quick. I first took a bite of the corn bread and instantly loved it because it incorporated cheese and it was soft and tasty. Then I tried the red beans and rice and it was delicious, I just wished it had more spice. Overall I liked the place and would go there again. I give this place a 4.5 starts. That’s that ladies and gentlemen hope you are enjoying your summer.

The Kritic says:

  • 4.5 Starts
    • Nice and different atmosphere. Bring only well behave kids so they don’t break the stuff in the store.
    • Service was quick.
    • The food was very good. That cornbread was unique and delicious.
    • Prices are good and the food portion is good too.
    • They don’t have lemonade but you can watch the chef prepare your plate right there, that’s cool.

Panda Express

Hello ladies and gentlemen hope you are having a great day. Me and my friend went out to eat at a glorious place… Panda Express. That’s located at 4531 Ambassador Caffery Pkwy, Lafayette, LA 70508 and it is delicious! You can pick what you want so I ate a bunch of chicken. I absolutely loved them all, but some were full of onions and the onions in the noodles overpowers it. But hey, the chicken was so good I wanted more. I give this place 4.0 starts, it is quick and it hits the spot. That’s that ladies and gentlemen have a great day.

Papa Loca

Hello ladies and gentlemen. Hope you are having a great day. I went to a place called La Papa Loca. It is a very small place but clean, it stays on 3701 Cameron St, Lafayette, LA 70506. Here is the thing, they could fix their parking space, but until then let’s focus on the food.

Best tacos I ate in town. You read it right. Best tacos in Lafayette, Louisiana. I got quesadillas that were different than all the others I’ve eaten, and I also got a beef taco. The quesadilla had shredded chicken and of course melted cheese but, the chicken overtook the cheese though. The quesadilla tortilla was way better than the tortilla of the beef taco. But guys, the meat of the beef taco was something else. The beef of the taco was outstanding it was perfect I suggest you put lime on the beef, but the tortilla could have been better.

What made me so happy was they had passion fruit juice. I give this place a 3.0. That’s that ladies and gentlemen hope you have a great day.

The Kritic Says:

  • 3.0 Starts
    • The place is very small and when is packed is not very comfortable, take the food to go.
    • The food is delicious.
    • Service takes time.
    • They don’t have any activities for kids.
    • Did I mentioned that the food is good? Those tacos!!!!!

Royal Curry

Hello ladies and gentlemen hope you are having a great day. I think everyone reading this knows about Masala, but what about Royal Curry? Royal Curry is located at 4510 Ambassador Caffery Pkwy Suite- J, Lafayette, LA 70508 and is my new Indian restaurant in town.

Their lemonade was bitter but I put some sugar and it tasted great. I had butter chicken, and garlic naan. My friend Rohan showed me how to eat naan with the butter chicken. You have to take a piece of the naan then fold it in half and scoop the sauce of the butter chicken and enjoy it.

The butter chicken was spicy but you can have mild. Oh my gosh that chicken was a chicken I haven’t had in a long time. The naan and the garlic bread together mixed gives you a great taste. I give this place a 4.5. That’s that ladies and gentlemen have a great day.

The Kritic Says:

  • 4.5 Starts
    • The place looks nice, very clean.
    • The service was quick and they had a card machine we could pay right there at the table.
    • The food was delicious.
    • No activities for kids.

A Note on K.O.K Wings & Things

Hello ladies and gentleman, few days ago I went back to K. OK with my mom to get some of that delicious food. I was so disappointed and a bit disgusted with what I saw. The floor was dirty and sticky. Tables were not clean, and they had so many waitresses just standing and talking. Don’t get me wrong, the food tasted great, but while we were waiting to get our food and go, it did not feel good at all to be there.

So, ladies and gentleman, my rating of K. Okay goes down to a 2.5 starts.

The Kritic re-says:

  • 2.5 starts
    • Food was great
    • Prices were good
    • The place was not as clean as a restaurant should be. My shoes kept sticking on the floor and they had ketchup stains and many tables were dirty
    • Service was so slow, we had to wait so long to order because the waitresses were talking to each other and checking their hair.

K.O.K Wings & Things

Hello ladies and gentlemen hope you are having a great day!

So I went to a place called K.O.K Wings & Things. Let me just say this, it was so good,  I ate everything on their menu, the shrimp, the fish, the chicken, the fries, and okay kay kay their crawfish too. You can tell already I had the biggest belly there. No kidding I looked like I was pregnant. In the pictures I sucked my belly in.

Everything was fried and I like every single one of them. The spices were outstanding but some people may not like it, but I like spicy so I say try it. Their fries had ranch and barbecue on them. Surprisingly It was tasty.

But then there was the one and only watering, juicy, addicting … CRAWFISH. They have a little small stand outside called K.O.K. Crawfish & Things. They don’t have mild or medium, they have spicy crawfish but it was so so so good. The corn… the corn…I dare you to eat it and the potatoes. I give this place a spicy 5.0. That’s that ladies and gentlemen have a great day and go check K. O. K right by UL Lafayette on 405 E University Ave, Lafayette, LA 70503.

The Kritic says:

  • 5 starts
    • The place has a simple and cool decoration.
    • You must order and pick up at the counter.
    • No activities for kids, but they have TVs and a very laid back atmosphere.
    • The menu is unique and the food and drinks taste great.
    • Did I say the food tastes good? Let me say it again, okay kay kay? The food is delicious.

Farmers Market

Hello ladies and gentlemen hope you are having a great day.  I’m having a blast because there is no school Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and yes I have no school for a week. So it’s time to enjoy and check out new places. Today I went to LFAM? What is that? Lafayette Farmers & Artisans Market. It’s located at 2913 Johnston Street, Lafayette, LA 70506.

There is a lot of stuff at the Farmers Market, but this week Chef Bourque’s Beignets caught my attention. Those beignets were delicious. They melted in my mouth and as expected the sugar flew around, so guys you must try it. That’s a 4.5 starts right there!!!

To match my yummy beignets I drank a frozen lavender lemonade from Magnolia Moon. Yes, you read it well. Lavender lemonade. And guess what? It tasted good. I suggest you try it. But do not, I repeat do not get the frozen chai coffee. That tasted worse than boiled carrots, broccoli, and dirt mixed together. The frozen lavender lemonade however, deserves 3.5 starts. My sister even ate the flowers used for the decoration.

So, if you are looking for something to do on a Saturday morning, want to try new things, and support local farmers and artisans, make sure to check LFAM, you won’t be disappointed. You can run, play around, pet dogs, eat, listen to music…I always like going there.

That’s that ladies and gents, have a good one, enjoy your weekend and stay tuned, more post coming soon.
