This trailer moved to the Crest Tavern, which is now managed by the former owner of Yankee Cajun. He has does great work with this bar.

Yankee Cajun is the latest addition to the downtown lunchtime food truck scene. You can find them parked just up the street from 3 Babes and a Baker. As their twitter bio says “Yankee Cajun is about bringing the flavors of the French Quarter and Cajun country to foodies in Columbus Ohio”.

We caught Yankee Cajun having a bad day – running late due to electrical issues – so there were only a couple of dishes available. We’ll be back to try more soon, but we just wanted to put them on the radar. We did try the Jambalaya ($4 without a drink) which was moderately spicy with generous chunks of sausage and chicken.

We also tried the crab cake po boy -made with two crab cakes packed with jumbo lump crab, peppers and celery.

    Perhaps you could actually tell us how food is… You just kind of tell us what you ate without telling us how it was.

      It seemed a bit unfair to, actually… everything was OK, but the were obviously operating at a significant disadvantage. We caught them within their first hour of operation on their first day at their new location, and they clearly hadn’t worked the bugs out yet.

      We intend to reevaluate once they’ve settled in, but in the mean time just wanted to let you know that they’re there.
