Tonight we went to to my favorite Austin Cajun place,Cypress grill. Wednesdays you can get a bowl of soup,entree and split a dessert for $20 or $24 for 2 depending on what you order. We went for teh $24 for 2 specials
I had Gumbo and Jambalya Tara had crawfish bisque chicken atchafalaya which is a breaded chicken breast smothered in crawfish etouffee serverd over rice. for dessert we split a bread pudding.
The soups were both excellent. It s a close call for who has the best gumbo in austin between evangelines on brodie and cypress grill. I think i give cpress the nod. Taras bisque was also very good but im not a huge bisque fan. As far as entrees Taras was excellent. Mine was good but the Jambalaya had a little to much pepper for my taste. Not overly hot but peppery. The bread pudding was also very good
All in all it was avery satisfying meal and for $35 including sodas,tax and tip it was well worth it. It you havent tried cypress grill I recommend it. its on william cannon just west of mopac
