Had read about Doomie's for so long on HappyCow and finally was in that area, so my friend and I stopped in for a bite. Here's my Doomie's Home Cookin review.
If you are looking for a healthy or light meal, you won't find it here. If you are looking for a tasty, fatty, salty meal, you'll find it at Doomie's. It's total indulgence kind of food.
From the menu we shared a southern fried chicken plate which came with a side of mashed potatoes and a plain white dinner roll. The chicken was thickly breaded and tasted very much like Kentucky Fried Chicken-esqe, greasy, fatty, and very delicious. The mashed potatoes were just right. The roll we didn't bother.
The jalapeno poppers were the bomb. Breaded and deep-fried outside, each with a large preserved, spicy jalapeno inside that's stuffed with a cheese that oozes when you bite into it. Yum.
We also tried their mac n cheese, and that was very tasty. I believe they make their own vegan cheese, and I suspect there's a lot of yellow margarine involved.
My friend also tried a BBQ pulled pork sandwich. I had a bite only, it was sweet, faux pork had a texture like beef jerky.
For dessert we shared a crossiant and chocolate cake. They make their own croissant and cakes, which I thought was impressive. Both tasted fine.
Overall, I think I would eat here once in a long while. The food is good, but it's all very fatty and indulgent. An interesting and taste-filled experience nonetheless.
all vegan, food taste good, prompt service
hole-in-the-wall, high fat and salt
