Thank This Louisiana Restaurant for Bringing Boudin to Your Table

Meet one of the first boucaniere's to commercialize boudin!

One meat reigns supreme in Cajun Country — boudin. The Cajun staple is a mixture of pork, rice and spices. Fans of the squishy sausage can find it everywhere from restaurants to gas stations throughout the Acadiana region.

Johnson’s Boucaniere, one of the boudin originators, has been around for decades. After closing in Eunice and re-opening later in Lafayette, this Louisiana restaurant has been a must-stop for boudin lovers all around.

Boucaniere means “smokehouse” in Cajun French. Learn more about boudin and its relationship with this special establishment.
