Met up with our dear friend Jay at Franky & Johnny’s to revisit the boiled crawfish we had a couple years back. Last time, we had 1lb each and I was stuffed. That was my first stab at the little mudbugs and learned how to suck their heads. Down them all and I’m even allergic to shellfish (or at least I think I am).

This time we had 2lbs each for only $8.99. I couldn’t believe it. I was thinking that was the price per pound. Turns out my friends say that is actually on the high side for New Orleans. Dang, this would go for $30 in New York.

We also had Fried Gator Nuggets and Fried Soft Shell Crab, which was frickin awesome. That was the best soft shell crab I’ve ever had. With this and all the tasty crawfish critters, I’m sure in love with Franky and Johnny’s. I hope that doesn’t make me gay.
