Mike's Country Corner
(Duson, Louisiana)

Mike's is much more than it looks like from the outside.

Delicious shrimp, boudin balls, pork chops, fries, and more.
Ambiance: The name says it all.  This really is on a corner in the country and it is a rustic and wonderful place.  Rumor has it that they will expand in the near future. No doubt that will be good for business, but the rustic, "country" feel may suffer a bit.

The Boudin
Price: $3.49 lb.
Presentation:  Wrapped up in large pieces of thin foil
Casing: A bit elastic. Good for squeezing.
Meat/Rice Ratio: Seemingly more meat than rice
Texture: Creamy. Rice and meat broken down to the point of being almost indistinguishable from one another.
Spice: Mild/Medium
Overall Flavor:
   A delicious flavor blend of ingredients with a rich flavor that is marked by black pepper and a few lonely, but nice and crunchy, green onions.
Comments:  A enjoyable flavor is somewhat compromised by an overly smooth texture. Even so, Mike's is certainly worth your time and their fist-sized boudin balls are some of the largest around.  Make sure to pick up an egg sandwich too (why you ask?: egg, ham, bread, mayo = yum!).

It is also worth mentioning that Mike's took home a number of awards at the 2008& 2009 Boudin Cook-Off where they put their products up against the top boudin makers in the area.
