Where’s the Best Place to Get Gumbo in Shreveport-Bossier [POLL]
Which local restaurant has the best gumbo in Shreveport-Bossier?
I am a gumbo lover. My Nannie made the best gumbo. My Mom could make it and I can duplicate it if I'm in the mood. But I would rather go out to a restaurant and enjoy a great bowl of gumbo.
Here's my list of the top 10 bowls of gumbo in Shreveport-Bossier (#1 is my favorite)
1. Herby K's
3. Gumbo to Geaux
4. Marilynn's Place
5. Bistro to Geaux
7. Abby Singers
8. The Oyster Bar
9. Farmers Seafood (take out)
10. Bergerons (take out)
I did a little informal survey to find the best gumbo in Shreveport-Bossier.
Several of you chimed in to offer your advice and I appreciate that. Here's what some of our local residents say about the Gumbo in Northwest Louisiana:
Darrell Rebouche: "okay, I did a gumbo tour. Worthy gumbo, loosely ranked:
Bistro to Geaux, Gumbo to Geaux, Abby Singer's, Kim's, (shockingly) Jason's Deli....
Stand-alones because they're slightly unconventional but really good: Herby K and TheOyster Bar. Oh, Shane's in southwest Shreveport. The take-out from Bergeron's is also good."
J. Casey Simpson: "Herby K's. Gumbo by name should contain okra. Without it, it's soup. Herby K's gumbo is richly dark the way a roux should be."
Sabrina Malmay: "Ernests! Lots of crab."
Those are just some of the many comments I got. I appreciate all of the comments and the suggestions of places I should check out. We want your opinion. Let us know which gumbo is your favorite.
