I'd like to officially make Boudreaux's Bistro the very first post-worthy restaurant in the South end of the valley--in Payson!
Very, extremely worth the drive.

I could not decide what was my favorite of the three things I tried in the above picture. Seriously, I kept switching my favorite. And I LOVE that you can try three things for under ten dollars.
"This kind of Southern comfort food is part of Sorensen's heritage; he grew up in the New Orleans area and trained at Cajun Culinary School."
|Fried Candy Bar $3.00 - Milky Way|
|Beignets (3) $2.25|
This was my first experience eating a beignet. I expected it to taste like a donut or fried bread and was wondering what all the fuss was about in the South (although I'd always desperately wanted to taste one). To my surprise, not at all did it taste like a donut or fried bread. These beignets were so soft & pillowy & deliciously coated in powdered sugar. I guess what they tasted like was a beignet! Tip: Eat these fresh, not to-go.
