Best Bayou City Gumbo

Just a short post, more of a question than an opinion: Who makes the best bowl of gumbo in town? Houston has long-standing cultural and demographic ties to Louisiana which have greatly benefited our local cuisine, one benefit being a relative abundance of good gumbo. Treebeard's, the dependable downtown lunch joint, serves a creditable chicken and andouille version with a strong celery flavor. Soul on the Bayeaux (3717 Dowling, at Alabama) has a mean, chocolate-brown seafood gumbo complete with crab legs and the kind of depth that comes from an expert roux. Ragin' Cajun does a lot of things very well, but, sadly, gumbo ain't one of 'em. Where else should a gumbo-eater go? IRWET wants to know.
