IOWA, La. — The state of Louisiana is shaped like an L, and the bottom of that L is about 300 miles long. Drive it, and you’re going to get hungry. Hence, I’m always on the lookout for little towns that harbor good food.
I just found a new one: Iowa. Pronounced eye-oh-way, it contains not one, but two lunchworthy stops. The first is Rabideaux’s Sausage Kitchen (105 Louisiana 165, rabideauxssausagekitchen.com), where I fell in love with the boudin balls, little golf ball-sized servings of pork and rice. The place also is justly proud of its boudin links and deep-fried corn on the cob, as well as pork cracklins. On Wednesdays, I’m told, barbecue is served and the locals pour in to get some.
