From here we headed a bit further until we got hungry. I don't remember the name of the little town we were in but we ended up at the Boudin King. We both opted for their seafood plate.
4 Fried Shrimp, 1 Stuffed Shrimp, Catfish Fillets and Fries - not bad for only $8! We arrived in New Iberia around 1 and luckily the hotel was able to accommodate an early check-in. We got our stuff unpacked and headed out for Avery Island. We toured the Tabasco Plant, bought a few things at their store and headed over to Jungle Gardens.

That evening we headed out to Landry's - Not The Chain - Cajun, Seafood and Steakhouse! Since it was Friday they had there Grand Buffet going.
The food was awesome and there was plenty of it! Then back to the hotel to relax for the night. Wow, what a first day! The next morning we decided to head to McGee's Landing for a swamp tour. We called ahead and reserved a spot on their 1pm tour. We arrived around 11:30 so that we would have plenty of time to enjoy lunch. We ordered an appetizer of stuffed jalapenos. We expected the typical jalapeno stuffed with cream cheese, what we got were jalapenos filled with this amazing stuffing that included crab and all sorts of yummy spices, then breaded and fried!

We then shared a Seafood Platter which included stuffed shrimp, grilled shrimp, grilled gator, grilled catfish, another type of shrimp, fries and a hushpuppy. Every place we went the food was sooo good we said we'd go back, but didn't make it back because we had so many other places we wanted to try, lol. Now, with full bellies and happy hearts we headed out to tour the swamp!
