Respond to Review of Soul Vegetarian - Abernathy
by GUEST

Review: I have eaten at another Soul Vegetarian restaurant in Washington DC. I liked that one better. The buffet food was varied and healty (beans and rice or barbequed tofu with cornbread and choice of veggies), but 13.95 for an adult portion. We opted for sandwich platters at 7.95 for a sandwich, salad, and fried side. The salad was fresh and came with a yummy house dressing that tasted tahini based. The onion rings were greasy (which I was craving) and crispy. My non-vegan friend thought they tasted "normal." My sandwich was yummy, although their seitan (which they call kalebone) was a little tough. The menu had lots of smoothies and desserts that I just didn't have room in my tummy for. One note of caution is that the neighborhood it is in is a little rough. The restaurant is located just two blocks from the MARTA rail system, but after dark you might be the unfortunate recipient of insults and slurs for not buying bootlegged movies. It was a weird mix to be paired with such a calm, peaceful restaurant where everyone wishes you a blessed day.

just a tad bit of history. The neighborhood is eclectic, but harmless. It is walking distance from something called The AU center, which is a cluster of HBCU's... Morehouse, spelman, clark atlanta. All though the homeless tend to gravitate there, it is only because the community tends to feed them and show compassion, as apposed to the way they'd be treated in a more affluent area. Also all the vegetables and fruits prepared at the restaurant are actually grown in that community by those "rough" neighborhood volunteers. The community is historic, and it has risen and fallen with the economy. But the community itself is safe, young, filled with most of the south's Future heart surgeons, and lawyers, and etc. Don't be put off by the few entrepreneurial spirits. Also if you take a walk around a corner you will come across another phenominal restaurant called chantrells.
