There aren’t that many places in this city with great cajun food, but Khyber Pass Pub is one of the best. Other than the Khyber gumbo, which is perfectly meaty and just a little spicy, they also have a ton of po’boys on the menu, as well as beignets at brunch that almost live up to the ones at Cafe Du Monde. They also have live music in their upstairs venue space, so you might as well just invite all your friends here for dinner and have a slightly-less-aggressive version of your college Mardi Gras experience.
