Vegan soul food goes beyond typical Southern fare at this globally inspired South Shore spot, which draws both vegan and meat-loving folks from the neighborhood with hearty fare free of animal products. The modest dining room is filled with aromas from around the world, from falafel to fried green tomatoes to eggplant parmesan. Though the inexpensive lineup of choices rotates daily, you'll always find tried-and-true soul food favorites like mixed smoked greens, sweet potatoes and cornbread. Meatless dishes such as jerk "chicken" and grilled kabobs incorporate proteins made from scratch, and the owners forgo processed soy and other additives. Dairy-free desserts are an option to cap off your meal, with house favorites including peach cobbler, cheesecake and a variety of smoothies.
