Dinner: We only got a chance to eat one meal today. We ate at Razoo's Cajun Cafe (201 University Oaks Boulevard, Round Rock, TX‎ - (512) 255-2400) in Round Rock. We didn't have high expectations of the place (with it's neon lit exterior and kitschy interior decoration), but were quite pleasantly surprised by the flavor of the food. The first thing we tried was a sample of their gumbo which was much too salty for us - the small taste they provided came with a lot of white rice - but I could see being in the mood for that in the future (mixing with a lot of rice helps).

We tried the Cajun Combo Skillet ($12) which had Cajun grilled andouille sausage, zesty shrimp creole, crawfish etoufee, red beanz 'n' rice, veggie, w/ toasted French bread. The creole was serve over white rice and the etoufee over dirty rice. Both were spicy with the etoufee the milder of the two. Again, no lack of flavor in any of these components.

I also had the blackened catfish ($11) (although not classically Cajun) which came out very tender and soft with a crispy spicy and herby crust. I really liked the dirty rice and kept on eating it even after I was full and we had decided to take the leftovers to go.

We also had a side of fried okra ($3) which I liked because the breading was well seasoned and the okra had a very mild flavor (the fried okra I've had recently seemed to have too strong of a flavor - something that I think is "off" (perhaps a side effect of freezing) since fresh okra doesn't have that taste that I had been tasting) and no "off" flavors. Tina thought there wasn't enough okra flavor.

We definitely enjoyed the meal and the next time we're up in that area (near IKEA), we'll try to eat there again.
