Tonight we went to Blue Dog Café. It’s always good but tonight was an exception to good. It was nowhere near good….. IT WAS AMAZING!!! This was the best meal I’ve ever had at the Blue Dog Café, and I’ve had many. This was the best meal I can remember. Maybe this was the best meal I’ve ever had in Lafayette…MAYBE THE BEST MEAL IN MY LIFE!
So what did I have? Shrimp and Alligator Alfredo over Angel Hair Pasta. Oh my goodness it was AMAZING!!! The Pasta was cooked perfectly to provide a base for the rest of the meal. The Alfredo sauce was not your normal Alfredo. Being honest I have no idea what they did different. I have been trying to figure that out for the past couple hours. I make an amazing Alfredo and mine is not within miles of what I ate tonight. The shrimp and Alligator were both perfect. Cooked and put in a sauce. More than enough of both, and to be honest there is no way they could have put too much. Mix it all together and you have one AMAZING MEAL. The bread was also fantastic and when I was done using the bread to wipe up every drop of the sauce my plate was so clean it could have been used immediately to serve another meal!
Prior to the entrée I had a cup of the Corn and Crab Bisque. I make the best bisque in the world with one exception….Blue Dog’s Corn and Crab Bisque is unbeatable. The old Lafayette’s restaurant had a good one, maybe the closest to Blue Dog in a restaurant…but it was nowhere near as good as Blue Dog’s!!!
I love this restaurant. I love the buffets they have on holidays and special events. I love so many things on the menu (especially the soups/bisques), but what I had tonight was over the top AMAZING!!!
I think I said the meal was AMAZING at least 5 times and that is not enough. Did I mention that the prices are more than fair, and the service was excellent, and the atmosphere is fun and sophisticated at the same time! Wow!!! This meal was AMAZING!!!
