Comments: Who’d have thought that just off the white sand beaches of Pensacola, tucked off behind some chain restaurants was a delightful Cajun specialty meat store. They offer a whole range of products too, from gumbo and boudin balls to cannoli. The crawfish boudin was also sampled and stood out as a particularly flavorful and pleasant choice.
