Lafayette Named Southern Living’s ‘Tastiest Town’

Tastiest Town
Southern Living

It’s official, Lafayette has been named “The South’s Tastiest Town” by Southern Living Magazine!

Lafayette received a whopping 194,502 beating out Louisville which came in second with 159,006 votes. New Orleans garnered third place honors with 57,842 votes.

What makes us so special? Well, we know, but here’s what the folks at Southern Living had to say about the heart of Acadiana:

There are plenty of new reasons to linger in Lafayette. A new batch of homegrown chefs is delving deep into the region’s robust culinary roots, with stellar takes on Acadiana classics. Consider The French Press, where the vibe is hip vintage and the must-have dish is Sweet Baby Breesus (slider-size biscuits filled with bacon, fried boudin, and Steen’s cane syrup).

At Johnson’s Boucanière, Lori Walls serves homemade smoked meat and boudin, just like her parents did at their store in Eunice, Louisiana. Then there’s homecoming king Donald Link, who just opened his second Cochon here, Cochon Lafayette.

Representatives from Southern Living will be in town today for an official presentation.
