Cajun & Creole Cooking and Craft Beer at Nawlins BBQ House, Yokosuka
Sushi. Natto. Takoyaki. We all love Japanese food, but sometimes that inexplicable mood hits hard and you've just got to have some good old fashion BBQ. Thanks to Nawlins, Yokosuka’s first Cajun and Creole restaurant, you can satiate that craving any time you please.
Nawlins serves delicious slow-smoked American barbecue (including briskets, pulled pork, spare and baby back ribs) along with over twenty different craft beers on tap.
Nawlins’ 15+ year veteran pit master, Chuck Morrow, is well-known to a legion of BBQers and craft drinkers. He’s spent years traveling America’s south, sampling sauces and inspecting grills in order to get his style of spectacular just right. The result? Mouth-watering meats, which also include catfish and fried chicken, can’t-live-without po’boy sandwiches, lip-smacking red beans and rice, and even authentic collard greens – only recently added to Nawlins’ awesome menu.
You can wash it all down with one or several of the American and Japanese craft beers available on tap, six to eight, from Baird Beer, where Chuck was pit master before venturing out on his own (with partner Charles Hall). In the mood for something else? Nawlins also offers sweet tea and an assortment of non-alcoholic drinks.
Sit at the bar and chat up the bartender, or go upstairs to their enormous family-style dining area. Kick back and watch American TV on their big screens, or listen to live music or browse the internet on free Wi-Fi. Comfort food with a congenial staff, Nawlins has it all.
They’re open seven days a week, and are located only a few blocks from Yokosuka-chuo Station. Get out there and get your BBQ on (and remember to tell them Lee sent you)!
