Oh man, it’s the day before Valentines Day and I just had to treat myself and my friends out the best way I know how.. with some Cajun seafood! But before that, you gotta treat your female friends the way they need to be treated.. so I got them some chocolate and flowers! Even if you’re not “dating” anyone or pursuing a person, it’s not wrong to get your female friends some friendship flowers! I’ll put an example!
Yellow flowers (doesn’t have to be roses!) are great friendship flowers. I know most girls/women say they don’t want flowers and that’s okay! I think the thought counts and it shows how much one cares. Even if she says she doesn’t like flowers, get her A flower (UNLESS, it’s one of those times you guys really discussed flowers and that they are just a waste of money.. different story!) Otherwise.. she may not even know that she likes flowers! Maybe she’s gone without flowers for so long that she doesn’t really know what it’s like to receive flowers from someone who really cares about her. THAT SAID.. let’s get to the good stuff.
LA Boiling Seafood Crab & Crawfish – 1242 E Colonial Dr. Orlando, FL 32803
It’s a cozy place with “graffiti” on the wall, with maybe 10-12 tables. I used to come here once a month a few years ago because eating seafood was such a pleasurable experience. Now I can’t eat as much as I want anymore. Ahh, so sad.
They have quite the menu, but the real winners are the COMBO PLATTERS. I typically get Combo Platter C. 1.5 Snow Crab Legs, 1/2 lb Shrimp, 1 Corn, 1 Potato. Hell yes. That’s all I really like to eat. The crawfish are just a bonus. Like I don’t go out of my way to get them, but if they are there, why the hell not! I will say, I feel the price did go slightly up since the last time I went there..
In case I forget, order with the Xa Bang seasoning. Actually, ask them to make it with Xa Bang and spicy! Otherwise, it may be super tame and that’s no fun.
We ordered extra corn and added some Andouille Hot Sausage and probably a few Hot French Bread. Ohh baby, that was so worth the carbs.
I suppose “The Ultimate” sounds like a good deal, if you enjoy eat blue crab. If I were to add a little something extra to Combo C, perhaps the crawfish but like I said, I wouldn’t go out of my way for it. Mind you, we were a group of 5 so this was just enough for all of us.
The place does have FITTED gloves, in case you don’t want to stain your hands with the scent.. but honestly.. you’re better off eating it with your bare hands! Try licking your fingers with gloves on. Blegh. No thanks!
Here we are, wondering what to get for dessert when one of us suggested “Ooh! We should get beignet.” At this point, we were kind of all satisfied with the meal that dessert didn’t seem like an option but since someone suggested… it ended up being a good suggestion. These babies were hot and fresh when they came out. They typically come in a batch of 4 but the lady working our table was kind enough to give everyone their own.. and bless her soul for doing that because everyone just devoured theirs and we all went home happy.
