I finally had the chance to stop by BeClaws in Wheaton (2404 University Blvd.). This Cajun/Asian fusion spot is the perfect place to go when you’re in the mood for seafood with a twist.
We started with the salt and pepper calamari. At first I was looking for something to dip it in, but the jalapeños give it a bit of a kick so a dipping sauce isn’t really necessary. If you’re feeling bold, you can change the calamari for...frog legs!
The bayou sampler was next. The gumbo was my favorite of the three, but I also like the étouffee and jambalaya.
This next item is not currently on the menu, but has been in the past and is still available if ordered. It’s the Cajun Pho.
Finally, I had combo #1. The pot container crawfish, shrimp, corn on the cob, potato, sausage, and rice.
I’ve also heard great things about their happy hour and brunch, so I’m looking forward to stopping by at some point soon for one of those options.
If you’re looking for seafood with a twist, this is a great spot. They have a second location in Hyattsville.
