If you haven’t made your dinner plans or still have room for food, you have to make your way to St. Anthony’s Crawfish Festival. You don’t have much time left. Check out this wonderful menu.
There are so many traditional Vietnamese dishes available. My aunt used to be the queen of making all of these meals but ever since she passed away, the big large dinners covering all different varieties have been far and few between.
St. Anthony’s Catholic Church at 300 N. Ohio Ave is currently hosting their 1st Annual Crawfish Festival today. It runs until 9pm. You can check out the event on Facebook. My mother was extremely excited for this and even arrived early before doors opened. There’s only one thing my mother will always show up for early in life: church. So a crawfish festival at a church counted in her mind. Plus it’s a fundraiser for the church so you eat for a good cause.
She picked up a true feast of different foods everybody would love including crawfish. Check out some of the pictures of today’s lunch we dined on courtesy of Mama E.B..
We had crawfish, spring rolls, sweet rice, stuffed pancakes, pork charbroiled meatballs, bun, and so much more. Some items I couldn’t even tell you what the name was, just that my aunt used to make it for us. My girlfriend came along and was introduced to many new foods today. My mother gave us the scoop on what everything was and the name but my hands were too busy holding food to write down what was what.
Get in while you can on this amazing selection of food.
