Location: 1421 The Blvd, Rayne, LA 70578, (337) 393-2750

Ambiance: It is rarely the case, but a longstanding myth holds that gas stations are “THE” place to get boudin.  Well, folks!  Here it is: A gas station with a a great specialty meat counter to boot!  Head to Rayne and sample some fantastic homemade Cajun meat products.

It's officially homemade boudin from a gas station.

THE BOUDIN

This is a great link and although we’d like it to have a little less rice and a little more “juice,”  we’ll most certainly be back to Nonc Kev’s Specialty Meats.  You wan’t be blown away by the spice but you’ll find the overall burst of flavors to be deeply satisfying and filling to boot.

We like this link a lot!

When you step inside this gas station you find that Nonc Kev has really laid out an impressive array of boudin items for you: gooey boudin balls, crispy egg rolls, and boudin galore.  It’s actually almost inspiring because you get the sense that Nonc Kev is doing exactly what we’d hope more folks would do; he’s offering us homemade goodies inside a convenience store instead of prepackaged garbage meals.  This is good stuff!  AND, we love that he sells little individual portions of cane syrup for dunking your egg roll, boudin ball, or link.  YUM YUM YUM.

Mmmmmmm, cheesey and cheese filled boudin balls and egg rolls.
