Best Gumbo in New Orleans
Gumbo is synonymous with New Orleans. The delicacy is a tasty mixture of strongly flavored stock, celery, bell peppers, onions, meat or seafood, and a thickener, is usually served over a bed of white rice with buttery french bread or cracker on the side. The delicious dish originated in southern Louisiana in the 1700s and is our state food. Learn more about the origin of gumbo.
