Of Popcorn Porn & Louisiana Hits

Craig LaBan celebrates the Louisiana flavors at the Khyber Pass Pub while forgiving a few missteps.

It has been a long time, though, since I’ve tasted Louisiana flavors that resonate quite as true as what the Khyber is serving right now. The richly spiced house gumbo with chicken and sausage is as black as midnight in Lafayette, where, in fact, they buy sausage from the Best Stop, my absolute favorite andouille butcher on the planet. (If anything, I wouldn’t mind seeing a bit more of that sausage in the bowl, not to mention elsewhere on the menu.)
