Gumbos were the perfect remedies throughout our stay in New Orleans because it was cold, rainy, windy, and downright freezing most of the time. One of the most memorable gumbos we had was at the Gumbo Shop located off Saint Peter Street.

We tried both of the gumbos: the seafood and the chicken andouille. Both were really tasty but the seafood gumbo was the favorite. The flavors were deep and bold with a good amount of shrimp and crab meat. Paired with a hot, buttered baguette this gumbo is fit to soothe any weary soul. The chicken gumbo was also well done and I'd recommend it for people who are looking for a thicker, heartier, chicken soup.
