Spot’s Corner in Elton, LA = B Rated Boudin
Ambiance: With a stove behind the counter and a meat case too, the ambiance of this otherwise gas station minimart seems to be of a place that is conflicted with what it wants to be and what it needs to be. There isn’t much else around, the main drag of Elton is still down the road, and I’m sure it isn’t as much of a main drag as it used to be.
Location: 3955 Highway 190, Elton, LA 70532-3428
Price: 2.99 lb.
Presentation: If it isn’t in the heating area with the multitude of fried foods, they’ll pull a hot link out of a pot sitting on the stove directly behind the front counter. Wrapped in foil, it’ll stay warm for a good long time.
Casing: Surprising it is both thin and rubbery.
Meat/Rice Ratio: More meat than rice.
Texture: Dryish with large and small bits of rice held in place by a triturate meat blend. The rice is well cooked and is not gummy at all and there are even bits of crisp green onion.
Overall Flavor: A nice clean flavor which is marked by the sweetness of the inclusion of higher-than-average amounts of paprika.
Comments: A truly huge link of boudin that will certainly satisfy your boudin cravings. I look forward to my next taste of this good link.
