History: Cajun Food is known as one of the hottest concepts in the quick service industry, and not just for the bold and spicy flavors. The unique menu at Kelly’s Cajun Grill is based on a very old cooking style that originated in Southern France, more than 200 years ago. The emigrants traveled to Nova Scotia and eventually made their way down to Louisiana, adding ingredients and spices to their cuisine. For many years, it remained the specialty of the Louisiana Bayou country until the rest of the world discovered it.
Although Cajun cooking is famous for it bold, spicy flavors, Kelly’s Cajun Grill has a wide variety of food to satisfy everyone.

History: The Chinese culture is one of the oldest existing cultures in the world today and dates back more than 4,000 years. Chinese food is one of the most popular ethnic foods and Chinese restaurants can be found in practically every major city in the world. According to Chinese Restaurant News, Chinese food is so popular that there are now more Chinese restaurants in America that McDonald’s franchises- nearly three times as many in fact. Chinese food is believed to have first arrived in the United States during the mid 19th century when Chinese workers arrived to help build the railroads in the West. The food evolved to suit American tastes and incorporated local ingredients. While there are many different types of Chinese food which originate from the different regions of China, Cantonese is the most popular style of Chinese food in America.

History: Japanese food, like American food, is actually a fusion of different cuisines and incorporates ingredients from several different countries. The Yayoi, a migrating tribe that settled in Japan, picked up rice growing techniques from Korea. Today, Rice is server with every meal. In fact, the word gohan means both rice and meal. The Chinese contributed soy sauce, tea, and chopsticks. In the 16th Century, fried foods were introduced by Portuguese and Dutch traders. Since Japan is composed of four main islands, fish and seafood were always a large part of the Japanese diet. The fusion of these elements has become the Japanese food we see today.
