We’ve told you about Flathead Cafe in South Hobart before. We went there again for dinner last night, but as we’ve already shared our thoughts, we won’t rehash the same stuff again. We still like the place. We just wanted to tell you – very quickly – about the amazing gumbo we had.

Actually, we chose a photo of the gumbo to share via Instagram. It just looked so good. Then we remembered… many of our readers don’t like social media, so we thought it best to pop the photo over here on the website too!

The gumbo (with chorizo sausage) was served with steamed rice and pickled okra. It had prawns, and mussels and lots of other goodies and tasted perfectly delicious.

If you’ve tried the gumbo from Flathead Cafe – or you know of a different version – please let us know. We might have a new craving!
