“The Lafayette Food Junkie Show,” which has been airing from 6:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. on Sunday nights here on Newstalk 96.5 KPEL, has given Lafayette and the Acadiana area its own show dedicated to the food we all love to enjoy and talk about since November of 2013!

In this edition of the show, Tiffiany Decou, the “Lafayette Food Junkie,” and producer Seth Hulin (filling in for Chef Zack Doise with Phares’ Kitchen) discuss which Lafayette area restaurants are open for Christmas and whether any restaurants should be open on Christmas Day.

Here's the list of restaurants that WILL be open on Christmas Day (Complete List):

  • Picadilly
  • Masala
  • Hai Nam
  • Royal Panda
  • Starbucks

Tiffiany and Seth also discussed holiday traditions and how each of them are spending their Christmases. They chatted about the role of food during the holiday - are you a turkey person, gumbo or something completely out of the ordinary?

Meanwhile, check out E’s Kitchen, located in Parc Lafayette. They are open Sundays through the holiday season. They carry all the gadgets to make cooking fun for you and have a great selection of whiskeys, including rare bottles. They have great stocking stuffers for the at-home chef in your life. Also, follow them on Facebook to see when cooking classes are, as well as online at eskitchen.com.
