As well as feeling like you’re in New Orleans, the kindness of the staff will make you feel at home.
A small restaurant with a lot to offer.
Hollywood is home to one of Los Angeles' most welcoming establishments. It is The Gumbo Pot, situated on 6333 West Third Street, in Farmers Market. Here you can enjoy typical New Orleans food at prices accessible to everyone. Its star dish, which gives the place its name, is the gumbo. The soup, typical of southern United States, has rice and stock as its main ingredients. It is made in large pots, and The Gumbo Pot in particular makes it with other ingredients, such as shrimp or crab meat. Its jambalaya is also very popular, made with chicken, prawns, or chorizo, and served with rice. Shellfish and fish are also the main ingredients in the po-boys, large sandwiches usually served with ketchup, mayonnaise, tomato, lettuce, and gherkins. Another alternative is the muffuletta, a sandwich made with sesame bread. The list of specialities is complete with the beignet, a dessert typical of New Orleans, similar to donuts, characterised by its high sugar content. It is best served with a good coffee.
