Editorial Review of Rajun Cajun

A combo soul food and Indian diner, Rajun Cajun is as eclectic as restaurants come. This Hyde Park favorite has a yellow and red interior, bright neon lights and a deli-style counter that screams soul, but there’s more to its ambiance than a New Orleans flavor. Rajun Cajun is a melding of cultural traditions, mixing New Orleans with New Delhi. It features fried chicken, okra, mac and cheese, and corn bread alongside tandoori chicken, saag paneer (spinach with homemade curd cheese) and crispy samosas (fried with vegetable fillings). The butter chicken is excellent, tender and oh-so spicy, while the $2 mango lassi is a wise choice for those searching a cold summertime treat. The South Indian portion of the menu is a bit on the steamy side, but don’t be scared off. The food is wonderful and a bargain, with meals under $10 and a delivery charge, if you feel like staying in, of only $2.

Average cost: <$10
