Tuesday’s Treats #138

Papadeaux’s Seafood Kitchen

Location: Norcross, Ga

This place is absolutely amazing!! We had actually gone to eat at one of the sister locations just the day before and had a not so great experience, but a friend of mine and I decided to drop by this location to have a “redo,” oh, my. Was it ever worth it! Wow!

We were seated in one of the best seats in the house, a nice little corner with plants and flowers at the window, hissing the parking lot, and a vintage entryway displayed out the other window. The server was terrific. You’d have thought we see his only, and most important customer of the day. So, we were already to set to have a great lunch, but I’m not sure we could have been prepared for the deliciousness we were about to consume!

We started with the coconut shrimp, which are HUGE! These are giants, but yet, they’re not tough like tiger prawns. They are meaty and tasty. Then, I had a Caesar salad, and they put creole grilled baby tomatoes on it. Now understand, I don’t like tomatoes, but if it weren’t for a texture things with me, these things could make me begin to! They’re yummy, and the salad is great.

My friend ordered the salmon, and she said it was probably one of the best salmon she’s ever had. I ordered a season feature, halibut and Spanish octopus. Now look, I’m not exactly the “adventurous type, when it comes to eating; so, I didn’t couldn’t stomach having the octopus 🐙 put on my plate, but I will say, the picture of it didn’t look too bad. Lol. 😂 The halibut was one of the best I’ve ever put in my mouth, and the combination of toasted hazelnuts, butternut squash, all grilled in a light buttery sauce was absolutely to die for!! It was so much food, I couldn’t finish it all, as we wanted a dessert, but wow. That left a mark.

Then….DESSERT. Oh. My. They bring this huge dessert tray with all kinds of delectable, homemade desserts, and you just want to ask them to leave you the whole tray! 😂 We opted for the creme brûlée and the key lime pie. Oh. My. Word!! My friend said the creme brûlée was wonderful, and my key lime was just as if it was fresh out of The Keys, topped with just a bit of yummy whip cream and fresh berries (strawberries, blackberries and blueberries). This meal was incredible, we’re still talking about it!

Note, this Norcross restaurant is on the “high end” of the money scale; so, be sure to take your wallet, but I promise you, you won’t regret it! Papadeaux’s has three locations; so, check out their website for directions and menu options.
