Eunice Poultry in Eunice, LA = B- Rated Boudin
Ambiance: Make your way to Eunice to go to the Prairie Acadian Cultural Center and to see a show at the Liberty Theater. While you’re there check around for a number of memorable boudin stops, including the Eunice Poultry. They’ve been in business for 50 years and lots of people love their products. The place is a classic meat shop with a super friendly group of workers and it is located right in the middle of town.
Location: 251 E Laurel Ave, Eunice, LA 70535
Price: $3.59 per link.
Presentation: In a steamer just out of arms reach sites a large batch of steaming boudin that will be wrapped for you upon ordering.
Casing: Thin and ready for squeezing.
Meat/Rice Ratio: More rice than meat.
Texture: Ricey and moist with some oniony goodness.
Overall Flavor: The reddish hue of the link belies the overuse of paprika, which imparts a sort of dusty bitter edge to the link and comes to define its flavor. The preponderance of rice is not a problem and there is enough meat to make it a worthy contender.
Comments: A fun stop in your pursuit of Louisiana’s Extraordinary link. You can also check out a review of their Cracklin!
