Angeline's Louisiana Kitchen 2261 Shattuck Ave./Bancroft, (510) 548-6900. L Tu-Sun, D daily; $$. Reservations advised.
Spicy Louisiana-style Cajun and Creole cooking is the name of the game here, and the atmospheric music and brick wall-decor only enhance the experience. The menu includes everything a southern-food lover could want, including fried chicken, crawfish Etoufee, both brown Cajun gumbo and red Creole gumbo, po’boys, a muffaletta sandwich, and bananas Foster bread pudding. Personal favorites include spectacularly delicious deep-fried cornmeal hush puppies, spicy jambalaya loaded with andouille sausage, and signature voo doo barbecue shrimp. Louisiana beers—how about an Abita Amber, Turbodog, or Purple Haze?—are served in a chilled Mason jar mug; swamp water, sweet tea, and strawberry lemonade are also options. Laissez les bon temps rouler (let the good times roll)!
