Stevie's on the Strip

Robert Lu | Nov 6, 200301:04 AM     6

Since traffic was horrible on the eastbound 10 (at 8:15 p.m.?!), I got off on Crenshaw to try Stevie's on the Strip. It is definitely something you have to be in the mood for.

The seating is a counter that loops around the outside walls of the restaurant. There's a pothole in the parking lot the size of Lake Michigan. J. Gold says the chicken is smoked before it's fried, but I tasted no evidence of that.

The gumbo is $10.00 for a pint. You get at least a pound of cross-cut snow crab clusters and two jumbo shrimp, which are not overcooked, chunks of andouille sausage and cut-up chicken which have been nicely browned in a skillet, and some token rice. The broth was about as spicy as the dollop of chili paste you get with dim sum, and flavorful, but you can definitely feel the roux settling at the bottom of your tank.

If you'll excuse me, I have to go run ten miles.
