Cajun and Creole restaurants have had a hard time surviving in SF as of late, but it appears that chef Eva Morris has found the secret to success with Voodoo Lounge, where the food has all of the spice and flavor of those cuisines but with a slightly lighter (healthier-ish) touch. Not too light, as you can still get a Fried Catfish Po'boy, the “Hush Yo Mouth” plate with fried oysters, hush puppies, slaw, and Cajun fries; and Smoked Gouda Mac and Cheese. But for those looking to keep it healthier, there’s also a Vegan Pineapple Bowl, Blackened Mahi-Mahi, and even a Kale Salad that sounds good but probably doesn’t get a lot of airtime since it’s competing against collard greens and whipped yams.
