Seafood lovers, set sail for these 5 Katy restaurants

HOUSTON – From seafood shacks to upscale eateries, these Katy restaurants serve up under-the-sea eats that taste fresh off the boat. These places get it right - From shrimp-stuffed crabs to deep-fried crawfish empanadas to baked potato oysters, these five eateries offer up some of the city’s best seafood dishes.

Azul Seafood Tapas

This Japanese sushi and tapas joint offers intricate seafood dishes with a Spanish flair. We suggest starting your meal on a high note with baked potato oysters, snow crab jalapeno poppers or loaded ceviche (or, if your stomach is a bottomless pit, order it all). Then enjoy some panko-crusted cod tacos or sesame-crusted salmon. Sushi lovers, don’t miss out on the bacon twist roll. It’s packed with shrimp tempura, jalapeno, caviar and cream cheese and crispy bacon.

BB’s Tex-Orleans

Stop by BB’s Tex-Orleans for traditional Southern Louisiana-style cooking with a Texas twist.

Then chow down on a New Orleans-style po’ boy packed with crawfish, shrimp, oysters or catfish, or opt for something simpler like a basket loaded with crawfish and Cajun shrimp.
