Their dinner menu has a variety of appetizers, sandwiches, salads, entrees and dessert. For an appetizer, we had a veggie noodle soup that had a rich, salty broth that reminded us of a hearty Chicken broth, rich with flavors and oily, filled with noodles and vegetables. For entrees, we had the smothered tempeh steak and the soul food platter. The tempeh steak was simply the best tempeh we have ever had, fresh, with a crispy shell and the steak was smothered in a rich mushroom gravy. That dish had a side of mashed potatoes that had a rich flavor that we are guessing came from adding vegan sour cream.
The soul food platter had corn bread, collard greens, black-eyed peas with rich, a vegan mac and cheese and savory sweet potatoes. We highly recommend this platter as there is a sampling of all kinds of soul food classics.
Other entrees include tofu catfish and BBQ tofu. Sandwiches include a coconut “BLT” wrap, a burger and an avocado, tomato and lettuce wrap.
For dessert, there were cookies, an avocado chocolate pudding and snickerdoodle cake. We both craved cake so much that we ordered the last two slices (sorry everybody else!).
Detroit Vegan Soul is a great restaurant well worth a trip up to the Motor City.
