Pappadeaux Seafood Kitchen - Denver, CO

7/8/12 dinner

Andouille sausage and seafood gumbo
Shrimp Creole and grits

Gumbo - while the gumbo had good flavor, each major ingredient had its own flavor.  I was looking for a gumbo that incorporated all the flavors together.  Its almost like seafood and sausage are added to the gumbo base right before they bring it out.
As a caviat, there is plenty of delicious seafood in the gumbo.  The bread that they bring out is a traditional

New Orleans Poboy bread...light and flaky.
Shrimp and grits - the shrimp n grits was a nice follow-up to.the gumbo.  It had a mild tomato base, but light.  The cajun flavors were present and calmed by the gentle grits.  If you try to eat the grits by themself, you will probably say that theres not enough flavor.  They are made to go with the creole base.  They did not skimp on the shrimp.  Would have been great with a pale ale.
