You might need to check with your doctor to be sure you're healthy enough to indulge in the latest local food creation.
The deaux boy is a funky take on the Louisiana po'boy that features over-sized glazed doughnuts instead of French bread and fillings of boudin, bacon, fried chicken, cereal and more instead of fried seafood or deli meat.
Deaux boys use eclair-sized doughnuts from Cajun Market Donut Co. and innovative filling combinations created by local chefs Nick Glenn and Ruebin Sandberg of local food trailer Live Action Deli.
"We just wanted to focus on something different and fun that no one has," Glenn says. "It's our twist on a Louisiana classic po'boy. We're basically just fat boys who love doughnuts and wanted to start a trend."
Nathan Liebert of Cajun Market believed in the idea immediately and decided to partner with the young entrepreneurs to make the deaux boy a reality. Cajun Market creates the specialty doughnuts exclusively for the food trailer.
Live Action Deli introduced the deaux boy this week, and fans have expressed everything from excitement to disgust at the idea on social media.
Four deaux boys, each sandwiched between two Cajun Market doughnuts, are being offered:
- The why lawd? with fried chicken, boudin, bacon, cheese and spicy mayo for $13
-The Southern crunch with fried chicken, slaw and spicy mayo for $10
-The BBC with boudin, bacon and cheese for $10
- The peanut butter crunch with peanut butter, jelly and Reese's Puff cereal for $6
This isn't the first time Glenn and Sandberg have introduced a new food concept to the Acadiana dining scene. The young chefs also serve a gumbo-on-the-go sandwich filled with chicken and sausage gumbo and potato salad as well as a sushi burrito filled with sweet and spicy krab, fruit and veggies.
