Porky's Boudin and Cracklin - Alexandria, LA

Fresh cracklin strips from Porky's in Alexandria, Louisiana
 -- The cracklin at Porky's in Alexandria is not as good as the boudin, but they're still worth a try.  This 4-year old store is making a name for itself in central Louisiana as the home to the region's best boudin and cracklin and if may indeed deserve the title.  The cracklin here come in long strips and they are lightly seasoned and not possessing of much bite.  CRUNCH on the other hand is something they excel at providing.  The strips are mostly skin with fat playing a secondary role and meat being a bit more elusive.  They cook them throughout the day so you're sure to get a fresh batch!
