Welcome to Bourque's Superstore
Home of the Original "Jalapeno Sausage Cheese Bread" World
Famous Boudin, and Hog Cracklin'
This family owned and operated business began in the home of Adolph and Yvonne Bourque, selling a variety of home grown vegetables and other staples. Going through five stores and fifty-six years of hard work and dedication, the business has grown to a 20,000 square foot supermarket, located in Port Barre, Louisiana near the birthplace of Bayou Teche. The business also includes a full service washerteria, loan company, real estate, rental properties, etc. Bourque's Supermarket offers a complete line of Cajun specialty meats, homemade sausage, boudin, cracklin, homemade beef jerky, fresh produce, deli/bakery, and other great products to cook those old-fashioned Cajun recipes. We also make our own seasoning, fish fry, roux, chile, seafood gumbo, and homemade dressing mix. We ship anything, anywhere. Bourque's Supermarket is currently being operated by children and grand children of Adolph and Yvonne Bourque.
The Boudin Link A+ Rating
Presentation: Get back to the MEAT counter and it'll be pulled from a steamer, placed on a piece of Styrofoam, and wrapped in plastic wrap.
Casing: Not a dry and crisp casing (which is preferable), but still breakable. A good compromise casing that allows for squeezing or breaking.
Rice/Meat Ratio: An almost even balance. Perhaps more rice than meat: perhaps not.
Texture: Lots of rice (in bits) holding together a well-packed link. It has both tiny pieces of meat and some pulverized meat.
Spice: Medium Hot
Overall Taste: Fantastic! You will have an immediate burst of flavor punctuated by a subtle, but noticeable, green onion taste which is absolutely delicious. Ideally juicy. Everything comes together in this link. It is too easy to scarf two or three of these babies in one sitting.
Comments: Bourque's is an interesting place. The whole place seems like a shrine to Adolph“The Boss” Bourque. He's the president of the store and his stern looking image is all over the place (from the signs outside, to the carpet at the doorway , to the grocery bags). You can't miss "The Boss." His granddaughter (or was that his great grandaughther?) even rang us up at the register. Anyway, it is definitly a family affair. Oh, and DON'T leave without trying the jalapeño sausage cheese bread. It is gooooooood.
