You might think this is fried chicken, but it’s not. It’s actually battered and fried tofu with a side of vegan mac and cheese and some cornbread.
I discovered Souley Vegan in Oakland, CA when I was visiting the area in September. I gave my Urban Spoon app a shake on my iPhone and, in search of a vegetarian restaurant, came across this little cafe specializing in home cookin’.
All the food is vegan and it’s all based on popular southern dishes. As a southern gal myself (didn’t know I was born in Atlanta, did you?), I loved all the options but settled on this full plate.
The menu is posted on a chalkboard and includes favorites such as fried okra, red beans and sweet potato pie (which they were sadly out of).
