The Hummingbird in Fairfax

Malcolm Ruthven | Mar 22, 201503:48 PM

I went to The Hummingbird in Fairfax for lunch today. It's a coffee-shop-style physical place with "home cooking" of many varieties, including New Orleans (where the owner is from). I had the Everything Gumbo, with Chicken, Sausage, Oysters, Shrimp, and Dungeness Crab (without the oysters; never liked them). I'm no expert on gumbo, but this had a deep, rich flavor that was just great, with generous amounts of the goodies. I think about $16, so they use the best ingredients and charge you for it. The owner, working behind the counter, said she made it. They also have a great housemade red hot sauce, with its own rich flavor as well as heat.
