Murray's New Orleans: Taste the Real Cajun

Saturday, June 25, 2016

Cebu will by no means run out of choices to dine in. 
As I go out exploring restaurants with CBS x Zomato I discovered different food fusions which are already established within Cebu. Just like my last gastronomic trip with Murray's New Orleans located in the roof deck wing of Ayala Center Cebu, where delish Cajun fusion cuisine are serve to fulfill your cravings for Cajun food.


Cajun food preparation is a tradition that is still alive today, which originates from the refugees and farmers immigrants from Acadia in Canada to the Acadiana region of Louisiana who would cook whatever fresh food was ready and available to them.
The menu is often prepared with seafood including; oysters, crabs and crawfish and usually added with rice, vegetables and most importantly cayenne and garlic as spices making the whole cuisine authentic.


If I have to reveal my top 3 dishes, it would be the pizza, oyster, and jambalaya.
Because I fancy anything that goes with cheese, pizza and spicy, I gave my personal favorite to the Dirty Shrimp and Spicy Garlic Pizza! The shrimp and cheese complement as a whole. It was actually a surprise for me when I thought I only had shrimp when in fact it has garlic too. I'm not quite a fan of garlic but it was really good.

In the other hand, the Oyster Rockefeller was one of the dishes got the popular votes as the favorite among foodies during the event.

Lastly is the Seafood Jambalaya. This is Murray's New Orleans best-seller and one of Cajun's top menu. It is a mix of bell pepper, onions, and celery, okra, andouille sausages, calamari, shrimps, fish fillet, and jambalaya spices. If you happen to visit New Orleans, this is a must-try.

More to love of their menu is the options and choices. Aside from your choices of sauce; original BBQ sauce or mesquite spicy BBQ, you can also choose which 2 sides for your meal; grilled butter spiced corn, steamed rice, dirty rice, doubled fried fries, whipped mashed potatoes, steamed market vegetables, honey corned bread, coleslaw.

For this meal I had steamed vegetables and mashed potatoes on the side. 
The whipped mashed potatoes was a perfect substitute of rice if you feel like wanting the American style kind of meal.
