Authentic Zydeco music/ Cajun food

Will be in NOLA 11/30-12/4 and would like to try something "off the beaten path" . Many years ago we discovered by accident a local hangout with great food and music (I think we were the only tourists there). It was awesome. Any suggestions?

check out www.offbeat.com for the music calendar and scan for zydeco and there are very few Cajun restaurants..bon ton cafe for weekdays, KPaul's and a lesser quality Mulates, many places have creole food. another good source is www.no menu.com

Both Cochon & Vacherie offer a contempary take on Cajun food, as does Brigtsen's (uptown).

Dwayne Dopsie and the Zydeco Hellraisers are playing Saturday Nov 30, 2013 10:00 PM at the

Shamrock, 4133 South Carrolton. Guaranteed good time, worth the cab ride (I assume you are staying near the Quarter, so South Carrolton is not walking distance)

Rock n Bowl has zydeco night every Thursday, but you will not be in town for that. Plan for it next trip!

There is an older discussion on this forum about zydeco music in New Orleans (lack thereof) if you want to get more info.

check Dwayne's website...he often plays at Krazy Korner in the Quarter on Thur-Sat. afternoons. Krazy Korner also has other Cajun/zydeco bands playing when Dwayne is out of town.

Another excellent band that plays zydeco/Cajun and country music is The Daywalkers (formerly The Bonoffs). They play on Fri. and Sunday at Fat Catz (2:00-6:00) and on M, Tues, Wed. at Krazy Korner from opening until 7:30...excellent music.
