With a craving (when do we not get cravings?!) we braved the cold headed to Dadeo's for some of their deeply soul satisfying Po' Boys, retro campy fun and eclectic decor. Fooda fooda foooooooood!
the DRINKS My boyfriend had his fav nostalgic cherry coke, while I passed on my usual freshly squeezed lemonade, so I could save room for dessert tonight.
We place our orders, and start with a small complimentary fluffy biscuit and their well known radioactive bright green jalapeno jelly, sweet with just a hint of jalapenos.
The FOOD the Po'Boys! Both of us went with my love, my tried and true, my just shut your gob and eat me Blackened Catfish Po'Boy. Its rich, fatty creamy decadence. The creamy rich catfish belly pieces are liberally coated in blackening Cajun spices, blackened on a grill and served with herb mayo, lettuce, tomato and tequila salsa. NOM! Got mine with a side of peppery chunky potato hash and a side of coleslaw. The po'boy is out. of.this.world!
Paired with a tangy sauce with gentle heat that builds as you eat it on a soft toasted bun we seriously wondered if we could have a double order of the blackened catfish awesomeness in our po'boys. Next time my friends, next time. My boyfriend had his po'boy with the crispy outside, smooshy soft inside, mildly spicy sweet yam fries.
The yam fries were done really well this time around, and we didn't even need the little container of aioli provided for dunking
Still slightly frozen, the subtly tart mousse like filling is like biting into a cloud and is nestled in a deliciously crumbly and crisp nutty and almondy pie shell. Oh, and its virtually swimming in a fluffy mountain of fresh slightly sweetened whipped cream and a smattering of toasted coconut. YOM!
