Product not eligible for additional discounts or promotions

Etouffée literally translates to “to smother,” like Brenda’s does to this chicken with tons of spices and love! It’s slowly simmered with butter, hot sauce, and the Holy Trinity of onions, celery, and bell peppers. Serve with a freshly steamed pot of white rice and sliced scallions.

Brenda Buenviaje grew up in the small town of Harvey, Louisiana, just across the Mississippi River from New Orleans. In 2007 she brought her unique brand of Creole cuisine to San Francisco, where it was an immediate hit. Crowds flock to Brenda’s French Soul Food, lining up for hours to get a taste of her soul-satisfying comfort food.

On-time delivery, along with timely arrival notices, were a big first-step to making me a loyal follower. The deciding factor was exquisite taste - especially the immense butterball biscuits that made every bite of red beans and rice a tasty sensation.

Oh, that restaurant is amazing! I will definitely reorder from them. I can only eat so much so it will have to wait. The strawberry jam was surprisingly unique. I can’t wait to order a new dish!
