Only in East Tennessee will a guy from India named Bobby serve you Cajun style boiled peanuts and pickled pigs’ feet.

    In Nashville the guy would be a Kurd.

  2. Joe Allen Says:

    Nope. I’ve had both – he can try and serve them to me, but it ain’t happening.

  3. Old NFO Says:

    If it’s good, who cares??? 🙂

    In Georgia it’s a Vietnamese named Petey, his brother Vinnie is cooking and his other brother Louie is running the register! Good bourbon chicken though.

  5. PawPaw Says:

    There are NO cajun-style boiled peanuts. Boiled peanuts are Georgia and north Alabama. And, they suck. Take it from a real Cajun. There are no boiled peanuts in south Louisiana. It’s cracklins and boudin down here.

    Could also be a Somali in Nashville serving Goat Burgers… Lot of them on murfreesboro pike… Lived on Plus Park…

    What Cajun place is this? Surely not Bayou Bay.

  9. Bill Says:

    Boiled peanuts live on in South Carolina, and in a little place in a town in Western Washington, north of Bellevue called Snohomish.

    Properly done, they are a wonderful treat, but overdone, its like eating slimy peanut butter.

    They are best eaten fresh from the pot, well salted.

    Yeah, they have to be fresh; they don’t keep, bleh.

  11. Mockingbird Says:

    I love the boiled peanuts, but I eat a little higher on the hog-ham and ribs. I’m able to afford it because I went to the Graduate School of Economics at UT Knoxville.

    In Louisiana, he would be the Governor.

    Dammit PawPaw, now I’m craving cracklins but I’m seven hours away from the Best Stop!

    In Lake Charles, we like our peanuts roasted, and sometimes dried shrimp with our beer. Sigh, wished I still lived in the Great State of La.
