Sometimes you just have to go all out and go with your gut...which is what led LAist Featured Photos contributor ~db~ on this food-venture that he shared with us:

Last Monday I crossed another one off my 1,000,000 things to do before I die list. I headed over to The Gumbo Pot at Farmers Market and ordered up this feast for lunch. All I really wanted was the Gumbo YaYa and Hush Puppies. When I found out the gumbo also came with a side, I selected the cole slaw, which they make there. I didn't even know about the corn bread until it arrived on the plate. And even though it's against the rule, I decided to get a couple oysters, just to disgust my niece and please my palate. The Gumbo YaYa is just under $7, the hush puppies are about $1.50, and the oysters are a buck apiece. Everything was Real Good, though I've had better hush puppies and would have skipped them if I knew about the corn bread.

So what's on YOUR list of places to eat in LA before you die?
