Mike’s Country Corner in Duson = B Rated Boudin
– CLOSED — CLOSED — CLOSED –
UNDER NEW OWNERSHIP: CHECK IT OUT AT MENARD’S CAJUN GROCERY!
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.
Location: 7499 Cameron St, Duson, LA 70529 – Contact: 337-8733467 -Hours: Mon-Sat 5:30 AM to 8:00 PM; Sun 5:30 AM to 7:00 PM
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.
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.
