Spiced and diced at Minerva’s Cajun Shack restaurant in Shangri La Plaza-The Ledge

If you want to explore more different kind of food, then I dare you try the yummy Southern America cuisine. It’s a popular cuisine because of the chili and seafood combination of their meal. A new restaurant was introduced me and they serve this kind of cuisine. Minerva’s Cajun Shack is a new restaurant concept that was brought here by the owners of Murray’s New Orleans restaurant, it’s a restaurant that serves New Orleans type of dish, similar to Minerva, they both serve Cajun food. 

When I hear Cajun, only image that pops in my mind is Gambit, a comic character from the X-men universe. Also not just Gambit, but also the Man vs. food series on Tv. Because I spotted one episode when they roam the street and tried all those spicy yummy Cajun dishes. Its one of my dream to try it and oh boy! Dining in New Orleans or in Minerva no longer requires you to fly to Louisiana, USA.

Cajun dishes usually have the holy trinity ingredients, namely - bell pepper, celery and onions the spice on these three ingredients are diced and combined into cooking like in French cuisine.

So enough the talking…let me show you around Minverva’s
btw, the photo above is from www.wahpinas.com I borrowed the photo from his blog (thanks Ron)

Inside Minverva’s will remind you of the old New Orleans restaurant. Well they share the same interiors and menu, but the menu here in Minerva is much more upgraded than New Orleans. According to the resto people, they target the female diners for Minerva, that’s why the name sounds like from the Greek books of mythology.

The menu. just click on the photo to view the large version of the photo.

I’m pretty pump up with my dining experience here in Minvera’s Cajun Shack, because the food served on our table is new and I can say that some buffet in hotels serve this kind of cuisine. But here in Minerva’s, you can order it by just raising two fingers in the air.
