Darnit, now I got a hankering for cajun or creole

Back from New Orleans and now starting to miss the food again.

Anyways, where besides the usual suspects of Harold and belle's, uncle darrow's, the gumo pot , and creole chef?

Thanks.

Oh, and my posting on new orleans eats from a weeks back is on the New Orleans board.

  1. Not great but pretty good is Bourbon Street Shrimp. There is one on Pico in West L.A. and another one somewhere else (oops, I forget where the other one is located!!).

          Then maybe they are down to one location.

        1. After last weekend nothing here is going to Laissez les bons temps rouler. I have faced this problem for years...closeest is, I guess, Hermosa's Ragin Cajun Cafe http://www.ragincajun.com/main.html

          1. Here's some I've enjoyed (God, do I miss the potato souffles w/ bearnaise at Galatoire's) and I'm sure, with a little digging, you'll find more great joints out in Inglewood:

            Gumbo Shack
            128 N Market
            Inglewood, Ca
            310-677-2993

            Bayou Grille

            Uncle Al's (Never seen it in NOLA but if you're a dessert guy, get the dump cake)
            400 E. 1st
            Long Beach, Ca
            562-436-2553

            Heard good stuff about this place and I've always wanted to try it (and just so happen to forget about it whenever I'm in the vicinity looking for food):

            The Spot
            2032 N.Lincoln
            Pasadena, Ca
            626-296-3320

            P.S. Anyone know if Frank and Joe's Smokehouse (formerly Cajun Way) is still open?

              i think mossville has closed.

              too bad i didn't get the chance to try the pommess souffles with bernaise at galatoires. (they were closed on mondays, )
