The Rumcake Factory is a funny name for a place that creates some of the best Cajun food in town, but that's just how the business evolved. Husband-wife owners Larry and Elena Robinson began catering in 2002 with Larry cooking the food he grew up with in Natchitoches, Louisiana. The rum cake, his mother's recipe, took on a life of its own and remains the signature item at the couple's cozy little shop. A wedge of the moist cake, with sweet buttered rum-walnut glaze, costs $3.50; a whole nine-inch cake is $30. But we're putting the dessert in front of the fine Cajun/soul-food specialties. Like fried shrimp or catfish in baskets ($6.95, $9.50) or the same cleanly fried items in po'boys made on soft French bread shipped in from New Orleans ($7.75, $8.50). Fried turkey and pulled pork get stuffed into po'boys as well, and don't miss the smoked chicken wings ($6.95) -- crisp, mildly smoked, and juicy. Jambalaya and delectable barbecue ribs make it as blackboard specials during the week, and if you're lucky, you'll catch the peerless gumbo. The restaurant is small with few seats, but most folks take the food home.
