With the Beaumont bordering the Gulf Coast, Cajun and Creole dishes are a staple on many local restaurant menus. These dishes masterfully incorporate locally-caught fish and seafood into dishes that resonate with flavor and flair. Shrimp, oysters, crab and crawfish - local delicacies - are heaped into traditional Cajun dishes such as gumbo, jambalaya and étouffée. Dig into a mound of boiled crawfish, or dive into a po-boy sandwich stuffed with fried oysters or shrimp. And don't forget to try barbecue crab, a Beaumont specialty that will have you yearning for more.
