I went to Angelenas on Main St. west of Garfield yesterday. They serve the best gumbo I've had in SoCal so far. It's the thick, flavorful gumbo, not the clear, soupy kind. The fried catfish was pretty good too. Their corn bread was a little dry, and their collard greens was a little sweet tasting.
I got there around 7:30-8:00 PM, and there were only 2 tables filled. The place was clean, bright, and nicely decorated. I am definitely going there again. They are located at:
