100 Favorite OC Dishes, #70: Crawfish Mac & Cheese from The Wharf

You know what's tough to love about crawfish? Too much work for too little reward. Throw me a bag of shrimp, and I'll endure the peeling contest, but forget trying to talk me into a bag of boiled, kickin' crawfish. At least with other DIY cooking methods like shabu shabu, my hands don't get dirty.

So when this new Cajun-Asian joint in Garden Grove began offering a crawfish macaroni and cheese option, I was ALL over it. Someone did the hard part already, and all I had to do was appreciate their handiwork? Done! This culinary version of my homemade tuna mac was as cheesy as can be. Served in a cast iron skillet, every forkful contained sizable chunks of seafood. Washing it down with beer in the middle of their bustling dining room made it better. So keep struggling with peeling duty, I'll be macking on my pasta.
