On the French side, "Cajun food" cooked with plenty of pork and crawfish seasoned with green bell pepper, onion and celery, is available in restaurants such as "Julien's Famous Cajun Style" and many more. Also, as the dialect "Cajun French" is still spoken for some part of the population, it is possible to practice a little bit of French.
