Louisiana Food at the Bayou Soul


I'm eating around the world without leaving London and since the USA is such a vast country, I decided to stick around for a while and have Louisiana food at Bayou Soul.

Bayou Soul is a homey looking American style diner, tucked away in a side street in Camden Town. It's slightly hidden, away from the tourist trap that is the Camden Market area, so even when we were there on a Saturday, it wasn't too crowded and just busy enough.

We had booked fairly early, so we still had time to enjoy some delicious cocktails for Happy Hour. My favourite was the frothy Mississippi Spring.

I didn't want to go for the bog standard American fare, which you can have here as well, so we kicked off with some gator bites to share. And just in case, some regular chicken nuggets as well.

 For my main I had a chicken gumbo, which was a little hot pot filled with succulent pieces of chicken, some chorizo type sausages, okra and a lovely tomato sauce. It came with a slice of crispy corn bread and some rice.

Two of my other friends went for a mac and cheese; one regular and one with leek and courgette. My fourth friend had the jambalaya, which can best be described as an American paella.

We all had room left for afters. My friends decided to go for the Bayou sundae, which they shared.

I went for a Bailey's shake. ( Don't you just love the person who came up with hard shakes?)

We all loved The Bayou Soul a lot. And the fact that they are organising live blues and jazz evenings on the weekends even more.
