The warming spices of Cajun food make it a satisfying and comforting cuisine, and in these difficult times, comfort food is a must. The Quarry in Columbia, Missouri, offers several Cajun dishes that are sure to satisfy your craving for something soothing, but if you're looking for a downhome dinner tonight, we recommend the classic shrimp po'boy with fries.
The Quarry serves its po'boys with proteins both classic and creative – fried oysters, andouille sausage and even turkey – but the shrimp is a sure bet. You can choose from fried or sauteed shrimp, or take it up a notch with fried shrimp tossed in a spicy garlic sauce. Served with lettuce, tomato, mayo and fries as a side, the sandwich will leave you full without feeling too heavy. Want to add a little something extra to start? Try the fried boudin balls, sausage and rice breaded, deep-fried and served with cocktail sauce or housemade remoulade.
