Kudos to Cafe Creole in Culver City

Cafe Creole


I don’t usually write about food courts, but today, I’ll make an exception. We’d received a coupon to try The Creole Cafe in the Westfield Shopping Center (Culver City), and missing my New Orleans fix, we decided to give it a try.

It’s touted highly in a number of publications, which made it a no-brainer. You can’t argue with a dinner around $10. A low investment like that makes it worth a try.

Top marks to their Oyster Po Boy sandwich, stuffed with plump fried oysters, easily large enough to split, and was accompanied with a side dish. My partner opted for the greens, which we both enjoyed.

I decided upon the Oyster Dinner, $9.99, more than enough food for me, which included several large grilled oysters, accompanied with a two sides. I remember my memories of several oyster dishes in New Orleans, and although this dish certainly didn’t rival those on Bourbon Street, it was more than ample.

Unfortunately, I wasn’t thrilled with the side of red beans and rice, which seemed to lack much originality, but the coleslaw was very crisp and flavorful.

The enthusiasm of the service people make me want to come back and try this place again, especially since they serve beignets for breakfast.

Lazily walking the mall, we chanced upon a live jazz trio playing below, and enjoyed some ice cream. Live music with no cover charge topped off the evening, making this destination one we’ll savor again.
