Joel and I had a great "Date Day" this past weekend. We started the day out at the Farmers Market. We picked out lots of yummy fruits and veggies for the week:-) After the market we headed down to Deep Ellum for lunch. The Free Man was a place we hadn't ever tried so we decided to check it out.
It's a small little bar/restaraunt that serves cajun food and has live entertainment every night of the week. It's like a taste of New Orleans in a box:-) We were there too early for the band...but would love to go back and chill out to some blues/jazz music sometime.
We tried the boudin balls as an appetizer...YUM! They are amazing!!!!!! They are deep fried dirty rice and sausage balls and they come with a spicy sauce that is also amazing!!!
I had the red beans and rice for lunch which was good. It wasn't as good as what I had in New Orleans...but it was close:-)
Joel had the shrimp po-boy and it was AWSOME!!!!! The shrimp wasn't overly battered...and had a great crunch. The cajun sauce that was on top of the shrimp was really tasty!!!
We will be back for sure:-) You should go check this place out!!!
