Authentic Badass Cajun in East Austin!
Hailing from Houma, Louisiana, Lynzy “Pub” Moran speaks the language of Cajun & Creole cuisine. Drawing its influences from France, Spain, Africa, and Italy, it can be easy for an outsider to get lost, but Pub’s passion for flavors and for cooking come to her naturally. In the South Louisiana surrounded by that laissez les bon temps rouler community, Pub learned early on that the most important part of a meal is sharing it with those you love.
For years, she has been feeding her friends here in Austin – staving off hunger and hangovers – dousing every recipe with lots of love and the perfect amount of spices. She blended her hometown cooking with the culture of food trucks in Austin, and in 2013, Baton Creole opened its service window.
Her menu boasts a delicious array of food that Louisianians know is rare to find in Texas – a perfectly dark roux gumbo, her trademarked Jambalaya Baton (Jambalaya deep fried and on a stick), Creole style Crawfish Etouffee. spicy green bean casserole, Cajun Poutine fries with brie, Crab Boil Potato Salad and don’t forget the beignet baton! (Don’t worry, vegans and vegetarians, she’s got main courses for you, too!)
Running her own kitchen was always Pub’s dream, but that dream has only just begun. This first trailer drove her forward into expansion, catering projects, a second trailer, and even onto television! She has received Austin’s Best Food Trailer from the Austin A-List two years running, and her endless good reviews have a theme of praising the chef’s company just as much as her delicious meal.
There is no telling how far this girl with big hair and bigger dreams will go. So make your way to The Shangri-La Patio at 1016 E.6th (conveniently open late late night and stumbling distance from all your favorite E. 6th bars) to get a piece of Baton Creole today!
