Gift Card Giveaway: Roux Tampa

If you follow me online you know how much I love New Orleans. It is one of my favorite food cities. Even though I am a bit of a wimp with spice, I love the flavors of creole and cajun cuisine. I cannot get to New Orleans as much as I would like (which would be once to twice a month) but when I get the urge, I can visit Roux located right here in Tampa.

The menu at Roux blends comfortable, new Southern classics with traditional Fresh Creole and Cajun dishes. Located on Macdill in South Tampa, the restaurant is a cozy place perfect for enjoying a meal with friends, family or a hot date.

I have taken many of my friends with me to eat at Roux for brunch, lunch and dinner. The menu is full of something for everyone and good any time of the day. I had my friends vote and below included are some of their favorites from the menu.

Crab Beignets

Boudin Balls

Alligator Bites

Skillet Cornbread

Chargrilled Oysters

Crab Nouvelle

Pound Cake Pain Perdu

Shrimp and Grits
