Lafayette: Rouse's Supermarket


Rouse's Supermarket, Lafayette, Louisiana


I'm pretty taken with the artistry of Rouse's Supermarket on Bertrand Road in Lafayette.

It is an edible museum of southern Louisiana foodstuffs.

I like that you can buy potatoes boiled in spices.

I thought you pronounced the name of the store like "rooses," but I heard a local call it "rowses."



The word is that because it was a cold and particularly rainy winter, the crawfish harvest isn't as good as it normally is, so the prices are very high.



I saw smoked turkey tails in Rouse's once and I regret I didn't have my camera with me because I haven't seen them since. Which just proves my point here.
