When in Atlanta, go to SOUL VEGETARIAN!

We first went to Soul Vegetarian with our friends Katie and Russell back in August and absolutely fell in love. While it is called Soul Vegetarian, don't let the name full you, it is all vegan (although, I think a few items may have honey in them, which we don't eat). It is a traditional soul food restaurant and it rocks! They have a lot of homemade items like Kalebone (a wheat gluten item that kinda looks like a chicken fried steak), the most amazing garlicky salad dressing and last but not least, they make their own soy ice kream! Depending on the day, they may have vanilla pecan, chocolate, vanilla and our personal favorite, mint chocolate chip! They have a vegetable plate where you can choose from the traditional sides like collard greens, sweet potatoes and corn on the cob, just to name a few. Today though, we went exclusively for their tofu sandwich platter, which comes with a generous side salad (with that amazing dressing) and either french fries or onion rings. We opted for onion rings . . . I mean, when are you going to find vegan onion rings that you don't have to make yourself?! The tofu sandwich is a tofu steak battered and fried, served on a whole wheat bun with tomatoes, sprouts and a homemade tartar sauce.
The only down side is the serve is a bit slow, but if you bring your patience and your appetite, you won't be disappointed. Seriously, drop in for a great meal (and VERY reasonably priced) when you are in Atlanta. They have 2 locations, but we always go to Soul Vegetarian II at 652 Highland Ave NE Atlanta, GA 30306
Sorry the picture is so bad. We left the house so hungry, I forgot to grab the real camera and Jared had to take the picture with the cell phone camera.

I can't get enough of Soul V mac and cheese. It's perfect!

I love that place! You're right, the salad dressing rocks!

Theresa said...

Looks great! I guess you have to put up with slow service, because you can't rush great vegan soul food!

We need to transport this place to Houston, asap.

I've heard nothing but good reviews for Soul Veg. I would love to come to Atlanta and visit all the great veg restaurants.

I wish I had seen your post about filo bundles last week! I made a total flop dessert with filo this weekend.

I'm a big fan of Soul Vegetarian and a REALLY big fan of Dynamic Dish. Also, I help Steel Restaurant in mid-town Atlanta manage their social media and have encouraged them to ask for ideas from Vegetarians/Vegans about what they can do to be more friendly to veggie lovers (including my girlfriend) ... if you have any ideas, they are listening on their Facebook page.

Not sure where to post this but I wanted to ask if anyone has heard of National Clicks?

Can someone help me find it?

Overheard some co-workers talking about it all week but didn't have time to ask so I thought I would post it here to see if someone could help me out.

Seems to be getting alot of buzz right now.
