Louisiana Plantations and Louisiana Gumbo Make a Great Combo
 
Louisiana travel, gumbo reviewThis is as local as local gets. I have said in past blogs that some of the best Louisiana Gumbos are served in places that don’t look like much from the outside, okay hole-in-the-wall looking places, but in most cases they have the best gumbo. This is the case with B&C Seafood Restaurant.
 
B&C Seafood Restaurant has two Louisiana Gumbos. A Chicken & Andouille Gumbo and a Seafood Gumbo. I had to have them both and I did. Here is what I found:
Louisiana gumbo, andouille sausage, seafood gumbo
 
Chicken & Andouille Gumbo
PLENTY of Andouille and chicken, medium roux, excellent Gumboroma and nicely seasoned with an excellent after burn. The rice was hot and did add something to the gumbo. By the way, B&C makes their own Andouille. 
$5.95 cup, $9.95 bowl.  
 
Seafood Gumbo 
Also a medium roux, excellent (seafood) Gumboroma, it had okra but it blended in well without the slime factor, nicely seasoned, a good amount of small shrimp and small pieces of crab meat. Excellent after burn.  $7.95 cup and $11.95 bowl. 
 
B&C is also a market so if you want to buy smoked, stuffed, boiled, fresh or whatever, they have it. I had a little "Lagniappe" (a Louisiana word meaning "something extra") during my Gumbo feast. Live music was playing in the back room. I asked how often they have live music and they said “whenever the musicians show up”.
 
B&C is located right next to Laura Plantation on LA Hwy 18, so here is a great way to spend your day. Start out at Oak Alley Plantation which is approximately four miles from B&C. After a great tour, go just a few blocks away to St. Joseph Plantation. After another great tour, have lunch at B&C and hopefully listen to some live music. You have to order either one of the gumbos. After lunch, walk next door (actually drive your car next door) to Laura Plantation for another wonderful plantation tour. Now, that is a day in Louisiana that will have great memories.
