Poorboy's Cajun Kitchen--Santa Clara, CA

Last month I went to Poorboy's Cajun Kitchen in Santa Clara. I'd never heard of the place before my wife told me about it that morning, but I can't wait to go back.

The shrimp boil--a steal at $13.99
I had a shrimp boil which comes with a pound of shrimp, corn on the cob and sausage with a Cajun sauce with medium heat.  It was served in a plastic bag and you could use plastic gloves the restaurant provided to eat, which I did. Not only does this give new meaning to "bagged lunch", but the food was delicious, too. I counted 13 shrimp, but it seemed more than that. (The sauce was a bit too spicy for my wife and for me it was just under my limit, even at "medium.") Not only did I enjoy the lunch for its tastiness, but it filled me up, too.

Jenny had the Crawfish Salad Po' Boy, which we both ended up enjoying. She actually liked it more than the boil. Whatever your preference, my advice is enjoy your lunch here and then rest for a while--if time allows--at the Santa Clara City Library next door. Both spots will do you right!
