But I was surprised when I was driving up OBT to see this little storefront in one of the many small strip malls with a rather plain sign that announced Little New Orleans Kitchen & Oyster Bar. I pulled in and sat out front for a moment. It did not look promising. In fact, it looked pretty divey. But hey, some of the best restaurants in New Orleans are dives. So why not?

But I’ve never been served a jambalaya in the Big Easy that wasn’t a blended rice style. So I was a little crestfallen when the Little New Orleans Kitchen server brought the jambalaya. It was served on a foam plate — that was fine. And I could see lots of shrimp and chunks of sausage and strips of green peppers. All acceptable ingredients. But it was more of a stew, served over a timbale of white rice. No, this is not the first time I’ve been served jambalaya like this. In fact I’ve seen it at least three times in the past year, all here in Central Florida. Sorry, but to me that just isn’t jambalaya. It was closer to an etouffee, but definitely more creole than Cajun.

Now, jambalaya is one of those dishes that is open to a number of interpretations. There is no set recipe and no required list of ingredients, though it is generally assumed that it is a rice-based dish. (Actually, I’ve even been served jambalayas that were made with pasta in the past, which was just as dreadful as it sounds.) Even in New Orleans, you’ll find a wide variety of versions, with such ingredients as chicken, shrimp, crawfish, sausage and such, all blended in and cooked with the rice.

New Orleans has been on the mind of many Central Floridians lately (Go, Knights!). If you’d like to remind yourself what good Cajun and Creole food tastes like, you’ll want to head to South Orange Blossom Trail soon.

Finishing up my last scoop of gumbo, we had two dozens of juicy oysters. We are from the Midwest where good oyster are hard to find yet expensive. We enjoyed our seafood and oyster here, remaining me of New Orleans I visited last fall.
