I Need Gumbo!

I cant sleep at 3am and just needing a fix, please someone tell me there is a place to make my dream come true! I'll drive just about anywhere right about now. Gimme the address and I'll pack up my carseats & 3 kids...(drop them off) and go!

  1. There's the Gumbo Pot in the Farmer's Market on 3rd and Fairfax.

    My favorite gumbo, though, is at Ragin Cajun in Hermosa Beach on Pier.

      I second the Gumbo Pot at Fairfax for a quick fix. Good, not the best you will ever have, but will certainly fulfill the craving. Also a decent spicy Jambalaya.

    2. 26 Beach does a chicken and andouille one and Uncle Darrows is around the corner.

      1. At downtown Disney they have a Ralph Brennen's. The food is OK, but the Gumbo YAYA
        is just like the other Brennen's. GOOD!

        1. avoid the farmer's market and uncle darrow's--- horrid gumbos// makes me doubt the recs

          1. i would not say horrible for uncle darrows, it is okay. what recs do you have?

              i threw it away, actually. yes, better than farmer's market.

              as of yet haven't had a respectable gumbo here. same like nyc, which lacked them. but a decent one should exist...

                Gumbo Shack on Market in Inglewood.
                La Louisanne on Overhill just east of Slauson.

                Both pretty good, much better than the very mediocre Gumbo Pot.
