    Gumbo z'hebes at Dooky Chase and Gumbo Shop. There may be other places serving it seasonally but not a part of their normal menu.

    For the Portuguese part, you might be refering to the Islanos. There are no ethnic restaurants there, there are barely any Cajun restaurants down there other than local family mom n pops.

    But I haven't been that way for years so maybe it is time for a drive

      Collardman, there shouldn't be Cajun restaurants in the Parish--we don't have Cajuns there, generally speaking.

      But it's true that there aren't any Islenos restaurants. There are some good little local places.

        I guess I call them Cajun in lieu of another choice. What do you call the cooking in the mom n pops toward Delacroix and Hopedale?

            I actually don't eat "down the road" very often, so somebody else could answer better. I consider Rocky and Carlo's to be quintessential St. Bernard Parish food, but they don't necessarily serve anything you couldn't get somewhere else. Love the macaroni, though. Try it with red gravy and a meatball [they're the size of baseballs].
