Hey ya’ll and welcome back! Since the pandemic started, being able to go out and try different restaurants quickly came to a halt. Restaurants are slowly starting to open back up and as of lately, I have become a little bit more comfortable with going out to eat; especially if there is outside seating available.
My girls and I were hungry and wanted to try something different and since I kept hearing such great things about this place, I had to make Juanita’s Creole Soul Cafe my first stop. Never heard of Juanita’s Creole Soul Cafe? Here is a little background information for you.
Juanita’s Creole Soul Cafe just opened up on August 1, 2020 (Fun fact: that’s my birthday lol 🎉) and they are located inside the Urban Eats commissary in Dutchtown. Chef Curtis Mcann named the restaurant after his grandmother and the food served here is a mix of soul food and creole cuisine which stems from the time he spent in New Orleans.
Everything on the menu looked really good and I honestly didn’t know what to choose. I ended up getting the Creole Curry Chicken Breast entrée with a side of their Candied Yams and Southern Mac and Cheese. What I really appreciate about Juanita’s is that everything is made fresh to order and that there is plenty of comfortable patio seating.
Once our food was ready, it was brought out to our table and we couldn’t wait to eat! As soon as we opened up the containers and we saw God’s love in food form sitting in front of us, we all were like yup…
Ya’ll….when I tell you this food was SO good! We all know that chicken breast can be dry if you don’t cook it right but this dish was literally cooked to perfection. Not only was the chicken breast super juicy but it was also full of flavor. The Southern Mac and Cheese and Candied Yams were also very delicious as well. I mean just look! 😍
My friend Carmen ordered the Seafood Mac & Cheese and she thought it was really good. The Seafood Mac & Cheese is filled with lobster meat, shrimp and crab meat and then is baked to a cheesy golden perfection.
Our other friend Candace ordered the Fried Chicken Tenders and chose the Southern Mac and cheese and their collard greens as her sides. She said it was very flavorful, delicious and she will be ordering it again.
The girls and I came to Juanita’s Creole Soul Cafe hungry and we left full and with leftovers for later. If you were wanting to try out Juanita’s Creole Soul Cafe for yourself, they are located at 3301 Meramec Street St. Louis, MO 63118 and their phone number is 636-389-0738.
Great food, awesome hospitality and it’s Black owned? Like what could be better?! Once you try out Juanita’s Creole Soul Cafe, you will definietly keep coming back. I know I will!
Until next time loves..
