To start off our first night in New Orleans, we headed to The Famous Gumbo Pot on Decatur street. We got to the waterfront restaurant just in time to see the sun set and enjoy a couple of rounds of hurricanes before ordering some of New Orleans’s finest food.
I indulged of the “stuffed crab dinner” over pasta. It came with the creamiest sauce that would’ve caused me to lick the plate if I could've eaten all that was on the plate. I tried my hardest to eat as much as I could, but two stuffed crab shells over a plate of pasta was a bit much. John enjoyed the jambalaya, but after trying our friend's “jambalaya pasta”, he was a little jealous.
All four of us stuffed our bellies and ate a little extra just to savor all of the incredible flavors. The Famous Gumbo Pot is a perfect afternoon choice for drinks and a meal near Bourbon Street.
