A savory, spicy, hearty dish representing the most hallowed traditions of Cajun cuisine. Seasoned shrimp, ham, spicy andouille sausage and roast chicken simmered in sauce built on the Cajun mirepoix of celery, bell peppers and onion. For a little Far Eastern twist, we serve over fragrant jasmine rice popular in similarly spicy Thai dishes.
The other day my wife and I needed a bit to eat before we headed to the movies. There was a Gordon Biersch restaurant near the theater and we love microbrewery restaurants so we went for it. While I will say, this particular time We had horrible service, I did my best to not let it effect my view of the chain itself as I have had other good experiences at here in the past. Anyway, I perused the menu for a while and although there where several salad, meat, and seafood options I could have had, I opted for something a little different. I went with their Jambalaya. They describe it as follows on their website.
So here is the deal with this. If you can be good and do it without the rice, you have a wonderful little spicy dish here to enjoy. Most of the carbs in this dish will come from the rice they include. Yes, there is some in the sauce they use to cook the dish, but its not that bad. If its a huge temptation for you order it with no rice, or substitute some fresh veggies. Lots of flavor and a nice little change from the normal large salad you might usually get at a restaurant like this. And, its not too pricey compared to other menu items here.
