What’s up fellow foodies! I’m coming at you tonight with another foodie review. After hearing so many people brag about how good Pappadeaux is, I decided to give them a try. I ordered the seafood platter which includes: a stuffed crab, fried shrimp, two pieces of fried tilapia, a blue crab cake and one stuffed shrimp. All of it was piled on a plate of dirty rice which was my choice. I opted for dirty rice instead of a plate of fries because I figured that would be better. I snapped a quick pic before I dived into it.
Lord have mercy. This dish has to be one of my biggest letdowns this year in terms of “fine” dining. There was nothing fine about what I ordered. The blue crab cake had little to no crab meat in it, the stuffed crab was stuffed with nothing but batter-no meat whatsoever, the fried shrimp and tilapia was bland and my stuffed shrimp was a total embarrassment. There was nothing stuffed about it. Don’t get me started on the dirty rice because the dirty rice tasted atrocious. I was sitting there trying to figure out for the longest what all the bragging was about. What I got didn’t look or taste like what was on their menu.
Considering the the money I spent, my wait time to get it and how disappointing my dish was, I feel my rating below is absolutely appropriate for Pappadeaux.
My rating: 🍴
Do better Pappadeaux.
