Don't be fooled by the subtitle of this restaurant, The Land of Kush is a completely vegan restaurant. Not a drop of animal product to be found there. We were visiting in Baltimore for 4 days and ate there THREE times.. That's how good it is.
I don't know how they do it, but they've managed to cram even more soul into soul food without all the nasty animal ingredients. It's a small spot, very casual, awesome music, friendly staff.. Most importantly- the food is unbelievably amazing. They offer down-home soul food-- ribs, chicken salad, greens, potato salad, chicken wings, mac and cheese, etc.. With a full juice bar. No mainstream soda, all homemade tea (the black tea is incredible!), housemade ginger lemonade, etc.. They also offer corn bread to go with your meal and carry a couple vegan desserts-- pineapple upside down cake and sweet potato cake (equally as good!).
The owner is amazing- working hard to bring the downtown Baltimore community healthy, nourishing, and affordable options. It's an inspiring breath of fresh air amongst all the grease and meat laden bodegas and fried chicken spots commonly found downtown. I admire their menu as much as there effort to help make Downtown Baltimore a healthier place. Yum!!!
Cons: small dining area, could use more desserts, wish they served breakfast all week long
