Crawfish and Shrimp Platter with Rajun Cajun Sauce

“Welcome to Crustaceans Boil House. What can we get for ya?” These words are what you hear as you enter the building of an unassuming Chevron Gas Station. The reason is that the gas station shares its space with a restaurant that’s is changing how seafood is served. 

Aldrick Henry aimed to open a restaurant that was a little different from anything around Beaumont — a pick your crustacean and sauce concept — and he did just that.

Vautrot's Cajun Cuisine

Martha Vautrot calls her little restaurant “the best kept secret in Texas.” She’s never advertised beyond word-of-mouth since Vautrot’s opened almost 25 years ago, she said.

She follows the advice her grandmother gave her growing up: “No matter how much you advertise, if your food’s not good, they won’t come back.”

Although he’s still a young 31 years of age, Tan “Ro” Phung is no stranger to the restaurant business. Phung, originally from Vietnam, came to the States as a baby. He opened Ro’s Seafood in 2008 with his sister Nhi Phung before opening Noah’s Seafood Kitchen in Vidor in 2012.

Phung named the restaurant after his nephew, Noah. Also, Phung’s relatives own Bruce’s Seafood Deli and Gulf Coast Seafood in Port Arthur.

The Beaumont Club has undergone many changes throughout its near century of existence and continues to evolve with the times. The private club, founded in 1921 by the Greater Beaumont Chamber of Commerce as a networking place for professional businesspeople, was originally located in the Hotel Beaumont in the 1920s and ’30s. It moved to the Edson Hotel in the ’40s, then to the First City Bank building in the ’60s, and finally to its current location at 590 Orleans St. in Beaumont in the 1990s. And now the Beaumont Club is changing with the times once again.

The first time I had Frenchy’s chicken, I was living in Houston about 15 years ago, and my co-workers insisted I give it a try. Being from the Beaumont area, I had no idea what I was getting myself into. It was the best fried chicken I’d ever tasted. It had a certain seasoning to it that I never forgot and even craved when I was in the mood for chicken.
