I'm not sure how many people are looking for ethnic cuisine in a small southern city like Shreveport. The specialty there is going to be classic southern cooking, which is most definitely not bad. There's good food all over this part of the country.

There's good food anywhere, but some people expect New Orleans or Cajun Country level of cuisine and they would be highly disappointed.

The number of people who have a sufficiently in depth experience with the culinary scens of both Shreveport and Albuquerque who are also like readers and posters on these forums has got to be a rather small club.

Everyone else is just guessing.

I've never had Shreveport food but I've eaten in New Orleans and was not disappointed (I've also had the delicious gumbo my NOLA native friend made for me) but honestly if I want Louisiana food I'd go to south Louisiana. Never had Albuquerque food or even been to New Mexico but I pick it, I'm sure they got a better representation of New Mexican style cuisine than Shreveport does for Cajun and Creole style cookin'.

It's not really a fair comparison; New Mexico has the largest and one of the oldest Mexican populations in the country. I bet Albuquerque's soul food and Cajun food scenes aren't anything to write home about, though.

I dont see how New Mexico has the largest Mexican population....i think NM only has like 2 million people or less.

Shreveport? Seriously. The closest thing I can think of to Shreveport cuisine was the old Louisiana Hayride Kitchen. Or the Kickapoo Cafe in Bossier City.

There was a great Barbaque place (Johnny Reb's?) down off the old bridge at Westgate in Bossier City, too.

You can't even get New Mexican food outside of New Mexico for the most part except where it bleed up into Colorado or in a few restaurants in Arizona and northern Colorado.

The chance of there being a New Mexican restaurant in Shreveport is probably nil (-1).

And though there are some Mexican restaurants in New Mexico, they are well outnumbered by New Mexican style food.

Shreveport is far removed from the New Orleans and Cajun Cultures. Any you find there would likely be post-Katrina transplants who decided to set up shop and stay.
Those would definitely add a great deal to the dining experience of Shreveport.
