When was the last time you tucked into the bold flavours found down South in The States? As it turns out, Cajun food is causing quite a stir on the island, so we checked out the latest Southern restaurants that have opened their doors.
If Bourbon is your poison of choice, this restaurant and bar is sure to spoil you. The owners stock over 30 types of bourbon, including rare bottles like the St. George Breaking and Entering ($14 a glass). To pad out your stomach, the kitchen dishes out Southern grub like addictive pulled pork sliders ($16, we almost wish these were full sized) and juicy Southern Fried Chicken ($20) . For something less stiff to sip on, try Mama June’s Sweet Tea ($18), a syruppy cocktail made with Redemption High Rye Bourbon. Guys will be pleased to know that every Wednesday here is Gentlemen’s Night, with whiskeys and cocktails going at special prices.

Taking roost in a snazzy new industrial park building, this Cajun joint serves up the usual suspects of a seafood boil – inspired by its owners first trip to The Boiling Crab in LA. For a full-on feast, try the Bombdiggity Bag ($139), which comes with enough dungeness or brown crabs, prawns, clams, sausages, mussels and corn to feed four. If that isn’t enough, their Creole flavoured sides, such as the Lobsicle (a lobster on a stick) and spam fries should leave you stuffed. To round off the Southern experience, they also serve a range of craft beers from Abita brewery in New Orleans.
