This week’s Good Eats Boston Feature is a awesome Cajun seafood spot, Hook & Reel Cajun Seafood Bar, located just outside of Boston in the town of Revere. If you have been to New Orleans, which is one of the nation’s culinary cities, you are probably familiar with Cajun food. Cajun food is known for its amazing flavor and rustic elements.
Since I have yet to visit New Orleans I have always hoped to find a place around town that serves Cajun food. So glad to have found Hook & Reel. They serve amazing seafood dishes with authentic Cajun seasonings, fresh garlic, and zesty lemon.
The restaurant is mainly known for its seafood boil where seafood such as crab, crawfish, or shrimp is boiled in seasoned broth. Other ingredients such as potatoes, corn, eggs and sausages can also be added. They serve it in plastic bags as they do in New Orleans which I love. You also get gloves and a bib to eat the meal which really creates a fun and authentic eating experience.
Other delicious dishes served here are Soft Shell Crab Baskets, Crab meat Roll Sliders, Po Boy Sandwiches and much more. We ordered some fried calamari and a small portion of the paella for our starter; both were delicious. This place is just seafood heaven.
If you love seafood, Cajun food or want an amazing eating experience filled with great flavors I highly recommend Hook & Reel. With locations in Massachusetts, Florida, New York, New Jersey, Maryland and many more locations to come, you know they are doing something right and are here to stay.
