Mario “Yoey” Martin of Myhellofalife Media recently just traveled to Dallas, Texas to attend the New Orleans Saints vs Dallas Cowboys on Thursday Night Football. Unfortunately for myself I watched my sports team come up short and lose in Texas, but while in town I knew there was a place I wanted to finally taste Pappadeauxs!
As a fan of hip hop I’ve always heard different rappers name drop this food spot. Back in the day when Houston and Other southern rappers was bragging on where they would spend the money grub it was Pappadeauxs being named dropped. Rappers like Paul Wall, Slim Thug, David Banner, Lil Flip and others would name drop this place. The tradition lives on now with young Texas rappers like YellaBeezy now mention the spot.
So now with the opportunity presenting itself a free Friday afternoon in Texas, it was time to make my way to Pappadeauxs Kitchen and find out about the hype. I started off with a basic appetizer with some square mozzarella cheese sticks and marinara sauce.
Now after that I order a red blend of win because I knew I had pasta on the mind. (I like wine whenever I eat pasta.) So one thing i was surprise at was the menu was nowhere near as large with options as I was anticipating. I was a little worried, but I remember something I was told when i was young when restaurants know what works and customers approve they don’t need plenty of options as long as the food is always good.
So moment of truth comes and I order the Pasta Mardi Gras. Pasta Mardi Gras includes Linguine tossed with crawfish, Andouille sausage & crimini mushrooms in a marinara cream sauce topped with jumbo grilled shrimp and served with a piece of garlic bread. Once I peeled the remaining skin off the tails of my shrimp mixed it in more with the pasta I dig in and I must say I was highly impressed with my pasta it was great! I was at the 2708 West Freeway
Ft. Worth, TX location as Pappadeaux have several locations in Texas and couple other spots and chains of the brand to learn more about this excellent food place check them out here!
I recommend anyone to try if you haven’t like me before and I will be back when traveling again to the region, Hey Pappadeaux we need a location in New Orleans!
