Just Good For The Soul
A Pot Roast with all the fixins'--Corn Bread, Coleslaw, Collard Greens, Candied Yams, Mac & Cheese--sounds comforting right? How about knowing that its all kosher, vegan and organic?
Yup, that pot roast swiftly becomes a Vegan Roast, baked tender and served with its own dark, full-flavored juices and anything else you’re fancying: their creamy, colorful version of Coleslaw, and an even creamier translation of Mac & Cheese, some spicy, sweet agave-sweetened Candied Yams…even some good ‘ol Black Eyed Peas. And man, I’ll tell you something about that Corn Bread, its the stuff that makes you swoon and immediately want to order more (at least I did), seriously, straight out of the oven, steaming, gold and crisp on the outside, soft and fragile on the inside, and of course, with a dollop of soy butter all to smear it with.
You wouldn’t expect of such a place looking from the outside, but once you walk in, past the green façade, the cool, jazzy tones…it suddenly feels different, like some sort of restaurant induced loungy feeling. And your intuition is right, on Wednesday nights they host just that, becoming into a Global Soul Café.
They also serve breakfast with the usual stacks, grits and biscuits, but of course, made with love. There’s even a Bean Curd Salad for lunch.
Soul Vegetarian serves food for a cause, to rightfully regenerate our bleary bodies while respecting all forms of life no matter what. And with food as pleasing as this, I don’t think the food will be the only thing doing the pleasing anymore.
