I have wonderful coworkers that send me to eat at awesome places, and this particular time they sent me to Edmonton in search for a delicious Southern food and ended up at Louisiana Purchase in downtown Edmonton.
We started with their Seafood Gumbo which is something I can eat day and and day out of my life. Basically very fragrant and flavourful soup with seafood! All things that I like and here, no exception!! This thick soup is here to satisfy me!
This was dinner, and I ordered their Louisiana Jambalaya which is a plate of baked Tomato rice with ham, chicken, smoked sausage and peppers, topped with one Cajun spiced shrimp with creole sauce. This plate may look small but it was so filling!! Everything was tasty and I couldn’t put it down even though I was stuffed to near explosion!
The hubby ordered the Satisfaction Plate, of course! Why wouldn’t he!? This was pretty amazing as well, although it looked like what I ordered with more stuff, he was satisfied. On this plate, it had Louisiana Jambalaya with shrimp creole and red beans & sausage. Choice of creole sauce or tomato-tequila salsa and we picked the tomato-tequila sauce. Hearty and delicious.
To end this night, we didn’t stop. We ordered their Southern Pecan Pie which is what it sounds like, a pecan pie with whipped cream and fresh berries. This pie was perfect, it wasn’t sweet where it was hard to eat when you’re so stuffed, but yet it was still full of pecan flavour.
What an amazing dinner here! I was so happy I didn’t have to sit in the car for 3 hours to go home and got to spend the rest of the evening in Edmonton and digest. And yes, after a few hours I ate again as this city has so much unique and tasty food to offer.
