Check out the new Cajun Bayou Food Trail for an affordable, appetizing glimpse into the lives and culture of past and present generations of Cajuns. You can start about 60 miles southwest of New Orleans in Thibodaux and end in Port Fourchon, about 72 miles away, or drive in the opposite direction. Either way, you’ll want to sample gumbo, étouffée, jambalaya, steamed crawfish, pecan pralines and more at family-run establishments such as Bubba’s II PoBoys in Thibodaux (where a seriously overstuffed oyster po’boy will set you back just $12.95).
