Cajun Food Tours Celebrates 5th Anniversary with a New International Food Tour

With nearly 900 CAJUN food tours under their belt over the past five years, Cajun Food Tours has announced a new food tour they call “Around the World in Acadiana!” Company owner Marie Ducote-Comeaux explains, “So many fascinating flavors from all over the world can be found right here in Lafayette. Yet many locals have not been adventurous enough to try them. The new World Food Tour introduces our guests to several menu items at each of the different nationally diverse restaurants on the tour.”

True to the nature of Cajun Food Tours, guests can expect an education along with the fabulous food.  Jay Steiner, guide for the new tour, says, “When you taste the food of a different culture, you are tasting their history, their struggles, their triumphs. You are taking a part of them into yourself. Sometimes it is comforting, sometimes it is shocking, but it is always nourishing.”  

The new World Food Tours are scheduled weekly on Wednesday and Thursday evenings. To date, international restaurant partners include Café Habana City, Antoni’s, Patacon, Saigon Noodles, Blu Basil, Urbano’s, Pimon Thai and Bismillah Indian Kitchen.  

In their bright orange, food-wrapped tour bus, Cajun Food Tours offers a uniquely casual, fun, and tasty experience.  Guests enjoy a 3 to 4-hour food-tasting jaunt led by friendly and knowledgeable tour guides. Those onboard are introduced to Lafayette’s unique food culture in a cozy setting of Cajun hospitality.
