Krabby Patty Sandwich
On the way to Baton Rouge, I hit Lake Charles around noon and decided to take a break. The crab cake burger at Mazen's Seafood on Prien Lake Road made a decent lunch. The crab cake was a nice blend of crabmeat and seasoned breading served with lettuce, red onion, and cherry tomatoes on toasted French bread with fries. I perked up the flavor with some Tabasco.
I actually ended up at Mazen's Seafood by mistake. A friend recommended Mazen's Mediterranean, the fancier Continental cuisine restaurant run by the same family. Mazen's Mediterranean, which is located right on the other side of Interstate 210, is famous for its fish dishes. I got the two confused and ended up at the mid-range seafood restaurant instead of the fish-famous fine dining place.
Oh well, next time I'll try the Mazen's on the other side of the highway.
