Blazin Cajun Crawfish – Best Boiled Seafood
When we headed to Houston and drove downtown to Blazin Cajun Crawfish for the best-boiled seafood – I was ecstatic.
I’ve always wanted to try Cajun cuisine!
The best part of my USA trip was having Louisiana style Cajun cuisine right here in Houston, Texas.

Since I love seafood and spice – Blazin Cajun Crawfish
I haven’t tasted Cajun seasoning and fresh succulent seafood together.

- Blue Crab
- Snow Crab Legs
- King Crab Legs
What kind of flavor do you want?
For me, I am not that daring when it comes to spicy and opted for the classic “Garlic Butter” instead of “Blazing Style”.
I’ve heard of other classic sauces “Original Cajun” “Garlic Butter” and “Lemon Pepper”.
- Garlic Butter
- Blazing Style
What spice level to order?
As for the spice level – you choose at your peril.
There’s non-spicy up to crazy hot!!!

How is the food prepared?
As usual, I chatted up with the chef and got a tour of the kitchen.
A simple setup with lots of pungent powdered spices.
There is a huge pot where all the seafood is put in to boil.
Everything is done from scratch to ensure the highest quality, freshness, and unique bold flavors.
Chef Chad tells me that their Ranch Sauce is homemade from scratch!
Back home in Malaysia, I’m reduced to using a sorry Kraft’s Buttermilk Ranch Dressing.
I tell you; the difference is a whole nine yards!
Blazin Cajun Crawfish Review
When we step foot into Blazin Cajun Crawfish we experience a clean, modern, restaurant.
Top customer service-oriented environment.
The owner, staff, and chef are friendly and smiling all the time.
They do their best to keep the food and drinks coming fast and hot.
Overall customer experience and satisfaction are very high.
The owner sings Karaoke with the customers into the night.
When we were in Houston, we dined at this fantastic restaurant 3 nights that week.
So, I believe this speaks volumes of the freshness of the seafood.
We loved the rich traditional Cajun flavors in all Chef Chad’s dishes and will defiantly drop in again my next trip to Houston.
