Gumbo (Bowl), 14AUD

Gumbo is a traditional Louisiana’s staple dish that involves thick flavoured stock cooked with chicken, shrimp and sausage, normally served over rice but we had it soaked on toast today. The bowl above excluded shrimps but there were plenty of chicken and sausage meats in it. The taste is darker than a goulash since goulash is sweetened with tomato, but the texture would be similar. But honestly it is difficult to explain the taste of Gumbo because its not something I usually eat. It was my first time trying out gumbo and I couldn’t make comparisons with other gumbo variations if this particular one would be better than the rest. However, my dining partner and I absolutely loved it and cleaned up the bowl unblemished.


Pulled Pork Po-Boys, 15AUD

The Pulled Pork was another winner. Though it looked not far from par with Subway’s sandwiches, it tasted a whole lot better. The juices of the pulled pork was absorbed by the submarine sandwich and it gives the po boy that crunchy yet moist combo. Pulled pork meat was on point with strong tangy bbq sauce flavour.


When I think of New Orleans, Animal’s House of The Rising Sun come to mind. And I bet if they have a bar, Girl With The Gris Gris would look something similar. You don’t come across Louisianan food often in Melbourne and the food here tasted great on so many levels. I suggest give Girl With The Gris Gris a try if you’re looking for something different, something unusual for your palate.
