Mind-blowing Mac&Cheese - the rest is so-so
Posted on 08 / 02 / 2009
I went to Soul Vegetarian Cafe on my trip to DC.
It is a HOLE in the middle of a run-down area. Basically it's like a cafeteria-style setting where they dish out the food to you. There are a few tables and chairs inside if you want to eat your food there.
We got the mac&cheese, yams, collards, tofu steak, and tofu-young.
Mac&Cheese = mind-blowingly good. The best vegan mac&cheese I've ever had. It's worth coming out here just for this.
The yams and collards were fair; nothing out of the ordinary.
I didn't care much for the two tofu dishes. The tofu-steak was kind of dried-out and had a weird flavor, and the tofu-young was lukewarm and like a tasteless egg dish.
They were also EXPENSIVE considering the atmosphere and that you don't wait on yourself. A plate of food is $9. They serve the food in styrofoam containers which isn't very cool either. I kind of laughed when I saw the styrofoam and then a sign that said "Eating Meat is Not Green!" Well, news for you: NEITHER IS USING STYROFOAM.
Bottom line? Go for the mac&cheese and nothing else.
mac&cheese, mostly vegan, very friendly
you wait on yourself, EXPENSIVE, THEY USE STYROFOAM!!
