New Orleans Desire Cajun Creole, Toronto, ON

For our Summerlicious adventure tonight, Gord and I went to New Orleans Desire Cajun Creole in Yorkville. We were going to check it out during Winterlicious but it was too stormy the night we were going to go.

We're glad we went. I started with the Jazzy Salad (mixed greens with a raspberry dressing and cajun spice ... a nice contrast). Gord started with the shrimp cocktail. We both had jambalaya ... nice and spicy with junks of chicken, ham and sausage. My dessert was pecan pie with vanilla ice cream and Gord had frozen cappucino yogurt. Both was also good. All this for $25 each! A great deal! I was so full afterwards.

Afterwards we had a couple drinks on the patio at Remy's, a couple blocks away. It was a great spot to people watch.

YUMMY - that is the 3rd location for that restaurant...I think the owner used to work at Sammy (Cajun) on the Lakeshore..then he opened somewhere on Weston Road, then Avenue Road and then Yorkville..haven't been since the Weston Road but loved the food!

They moved to Yorkville in September from Avenue Road. It was good food!

Sammy's Cajun is wonderful too..they have a gardnen like patio set outside looking over the lake. I think New Orleans copied most of the menu items

If you are ever out that way.
