best jambalaya still these three?
The "Black Barts" jambalaya at Crescent Pie & Sausage is very spicy with a unique twist of added black-eyed peas. Not traditional, but really good. Never had K-Pauls' version, and it's been years since I was in the Gumbo Shop but I always thought they were good.
I like the one at Jacques Imos as an appetizer. Jambalaya is just not something I usually order in a restaurant.
While I'll occasionally order a cup of gumbo, or in the case of Z'herbs, a bowl, I've never ordered jambalaya. That's something you make at home to get rid of some leftover meat, sausage or seafood.
I do remember friends from Houston having some at Crescent Pie. I would think theirs was good as good ingredients will go into it.
