    I'm of Louisiana Creole descent.

    I personally don't like all Creole foods but Gumbo is the most traditional meal and it is good as hell.

    Gumbo is a traditional Creole dish from New Orleans with French, Spanish, Native American, African, German, Italian and Caribbean influences. It is a stew based on either seafood (usually shrimp, crabs, with oysters optional) and sausage, or chicken (hen or rooster), alligator, turtle, crawfish and even rabbit. It also may include rabbit, alligator, deer or wild boar instead of just duck. Gumbo is often seasoned with filé, which is dried, ground sassafras leaves, both contain the "Holy Trinity" and are served over rice.

    Other foods -


    Red beans and rice


    Oxtail Soup


    Eggs Sardou

    French Toast


    Bread Pudding

    Peach Cobbler

    Rice and gravy

    Just come to New Orleans. Louisiana Creole cuisine is all over the place and you can't miss it. In my opinion, they have some quality dishes of standard Louisiana Creole and Cajun food.

    All the food mentioned by other answerers, plus stewed tomatoes and okra, shrimp and tomatoes, and a variety of "smothered" meats (sort of like an oniony stew, but with less liquid). Oh, and something called "dirty rice", which is rice cooked with organ meats. (It actually tastes good, but it really does look like someone dropped a bunch of rice outside and then scooped up everything and cooked it!)
