Bib up and Purge out at “Pier 9 Cajun Kitchen”

By Htun Lyn Zaw

What is it: Rejoice, Seafood Lovers! This is the very first Cajun/Creole cuisine in town, which proudly claims to be catering authentic southern Louisiana style seafood. If you fancy releasing your inner seafood loving maniac by wearing a bib, cracking shells with your bare hands, and chowing down on aquatic delicacies such as lobsters, crab, and clams, Pier 9 is definitely the place where you need to be at.

Atmosphere: The shop is a three-storied pier themed building, and every floor seems to serve its own purpose. The first floor is rather family oriented with its large tables and charmingly decorated seating whilst second floor gives out a bar vibe, where you can enjoy drinks from the bar and maybe a football match with your friends along with the meal. The third floor is a lounge area where you can sit comfortably and has a fine dining feel to it.

Recommendation: We started off with cocktails, Pimm’s Cup (Ks 5490) and Rosarika (Ks 6490), from the bar. The subtle mix of raspberry vodka’s rawness and gentle fragrance of Rose beer in Rosarika will trick your tongue and kick off strong if you are on an empty stomach.

For starters, we munched on crunchy deep fried whole onion called Blooming Onion (Ks 5900) with remoulade sauce and Cajun Boudin Balls with spicy lemongrass sauce (Ks 5900).

For entrees, we tried Ox Tail Stew (Ks 10900) soaked in onion gravy, which is served with toasted bread (you can choose to have it with rice as well).

The mouthwatering main course we had is called “the whole 9 Yards” (Ks 24,900): the signature dish of the restaurant. It is a spicy platter of assorted seafood with corns and potatoes mixed in Pier 9 original sauce. Interestingly, unlike other assorted dishes I have had before, the texture of the taste did not give out a certain overwhelming miscellaneous-ness, but rather had a refined wholesomeness to it.

Final thoughts: The overall experience was wonderfully satisfying since the staff was helpful and the food was exquisite. The location might be in 9 miles, but according to the restaurant manager, it is intended to have more space for parking. In a sense, if you want to escape from your daily monotonies to give yourself a soul soothing seafood treat, Pier 9 is just the place for you.
