From smoked brisket, barbecue ribs and fried chicken to catfish, jambalaya and seafood etouffee, this is just a little of what to expect at this Cajun/soul food hole-in-the-wall tucked along an unassuming shopping strip near Globe Life Park. The cafe is the brainchild of chef Damian L. Placide Sr., a Lousiana native who honed in on his cooking skills when he worked at his mother's diner in New Iberia, LA. A short list of around five dishes (with accompanying sides) are offered on a daily changing menu, all of which can be had for between $8-$10. Oh, and those sides, which come in the form of red beans and rice; candied yams; smothered cabbage and jalapeño spiked mac & cheese, aren't too shabby either. You're definitely going want more than the two that are included with each main. Ditto for hush puppies and cornbread. Order extra helpings of those too. Be sure to check out the desserts as well. The peach cobbler, crowned with a rich pecan crust, is stellar.
