Looking for a good Creole and Canjun restaurant.

      1. There's always a pretty good battle between Les Sisters and Harold & Belles for the prize of worst Creole/Cajun restaurant in LA.

        It might be easier if the two restaurant just split LA between North and South and take the prize for each geographic region.

          I apparently don't know good Creole/Cajun, but I like the jambalaya and smothered meatloaf at Les Sisters.

            Uncle Darrows is terrible. Would not even call it Cajun or creole. It's a tiny step up from cafeteria food.

          2. Years ago L A had many great Cajun restaurants but they have all closed. The Gumbo Pot at The Original Farmer's Market is better than most

              We haven't been to the Pot in years, but it seems like it's gone downhill from the last few years. Used to be a great one in Monrovia, Cajun Way, but I believe he's also long gone. Best I have found, at least from the Westside to downtown, is the New Orleans Cafe. But we usually scratch our itch in Santa Barbara, at the Palace Grill.
