Legnon’s Boucherie in New Iberia, LA = A Rated Boudin

Legsoutside

Location: 410 Jefferson Terrace, New Iberia, 70560

Ambiance: This is a new location in a new steel building with a nice brick facade, creating an old style country store feel. Inside it is a very modern facility with shiny clean stainless steel tables and work areas. The meat is all arranged in an attractive fashion and looks delicious. Owner operated and run by a friendly and capable staff.

THE BOUDIN

Legnonsboudin2

Cost: $2.89 per lb. ($3.69 on 1-4-11)

Presentation: wrapped in butcher paper and placed in a brown paper sack at the register.

Casing: Moist and breakable. A fine casing.

Rice/Meat Ratio: More meat than rice, but the two are in perfect unison within the casing.

Texture: The meat is finely minced without any meaty chunks. The green onion is also finely minced. The rice is neither mushy nor crisp. Ideal.

Spices: Good spice and very warm.

Overall Taste: A meaty good taste with a distinct and fine flavor. A little dry, lacking some of the fattiness of other links of boudin.

Comments: A consistent link of boudin according to someone who has been eating it for almost 20 years. A clean establishment with friendly owners who are willing to please the customer. We could eat this boudin daily. Make the drive to “The Berry” and thank us later.
