If you were asked to seamlessly blend East and West, Asian and Cajun probably wouldn't be the first combination to come to mind – but that element of surprise is exactly what makes this oddball fusion cuisine so great. The Asian Cajun is really two restaurants in one: It offers year-round seafood boils and Cajun favorites like fried frog legs alongside delicious, sizzling Lao lemongrass sausage and Korean barbecue. Throw in a few hybrid creations -- try the étouffée dip served with wonton chips -- and your biggest challenge at Asian Cajun will be narrowing down makes your choices (hint: Bring friends).
