Only in Chinatown would you find a Vietnamese-run Cajun restaurant/sports bar that also serves sushi. And all of it is good, including the fresh crawfish that the Wild Cajun folks nearly always have in stock - whether it's crawfish season or not. In keeping with the mostly Cajun theme, poor boys, boudin balls, fried alligator and tremendous seafood platters round out the menu, while the OMFG! Wings are a crowd favorite, especially washed down with a cold beer.
I did some research and saw this place was ranked #1 in crawfish for the past couple of years in Houston so I was super excited to try it. I am a crawfish fanatic but was very disappointed:( I ordered 2 pounds of extra spicy Wild Cajun crawfish and when they brought them to me it was maybe a pound of crawfish and the rest was seasoning. The crawfish wasn't spicy at all and the seasoning was everywhere and to top it off, the sushi guy wasn't working! The best place I have gotten crawfish so far this season (2013) was at Tailgators in the Woodlands (AWESOME) and I will drive an extra hour to go there for their crawfish!

It's not officially crawfish season yet. Exhibit A: Danton's, my go-to for serious Cajun food, isn't stocking them. Exhibit B: Neither is BB's Cajun Café or Goode Co. Seafood. And it won't be until at least the end of the month, if not next... More »
Most people come to Wild Cajun for the crawfish, and with good reason -- the Vietnamese sports bar's two crawfish blends are hopped up with spice and finger-licking fantastic. But the hidden secret here is the chargrilled oysters, each plump bivalve individually topped with shallots and a nose-clearing, eye-opening ginger puree that will make you forget all about horseradish and cocktail sauce.

One of the most recent Viet-Cajun joints to crop up in southwest Houston, Wild Cajun is currently our favorite (and not just because it also serves sushi and amazing chargrilled oysters). There are only two flavors of boil here: garlic butter and the signature Wild Cajun. You can guess which one is the spicier of the two. The garlic butter, however, isn't overly garlicky and instead subtly enhances the sweet meat of the crawfish tails. The Wild Cajun will set your lips, cuticles and tongue... More »
