Alligator Soul in Everett, WA

Recommended Posts

Dropped by Alligator Soul in May on a Saturday night and it was crowded. All the locals in Everett seemed to eat here and its easy to see why. No creole or cajun restaurant in Vancouver comes close to the experience I had at Alligator Soul, the food is simply heart warming good.

Sampled turtle soup, deep fried alligator tail, hush puppies, gumbo, jambalaya, and crawfish etoufee. Everything was good, with the crawfish etoufee being a particularly great standout. Finished the meal off with the dessert beignets which had some banana and caramel sauce.

Its really a shame that Southern food doesn't exist in my home town Vancouver, at least at this level. I know this isn't the kind of high end cuisine normally mentioned on egullet, but I really liked the restaurant's welcoming and friendly quality. Forgive the poor photos, I was too impatient to deal with camera settings and wanted to dive into the food.

Went back this past weekend for their special Crawfish Boil! Check their website calendar for remaining dates (June 27 is one of them). I must say that the crawfish boil was very spicy. I like food with some kick but this is definitely for those who like stuff really hot.

1lbs crawfish boil. This was quite big for one person, and they even had a 3lbs version available to share.

Bread pudding with bourbon sauce. I prefered the beignet dessert I had previously.
