In addition to the Oakland restaurant, there are 3 other locations serving pick-up/deliver only located in San Francisco, Los Angeles, and Las Vegas.
Upon ordering, I was looking for one of my favorite orders growing up as a child. Crispy tenders... I know, but they are so good and I love finding places that offer vegan strips and comparing them. The way restaurants are able to get the texture and consistency amazes me. Souley Vegan did not disappoint at all. The Seitan Spicy Strips are seasoned and definitely satisfied my craving. They're served with carrots,celery, and hot sauce but I also ordered barbecue sauce because its an obsession of mine! Price: $12.00
I also ordered the Cajun Seasoned French Fries. They were super flavorful with a hint of spice. I loved how crispy they were and the portion sizes left me with plenty left over to share! Price: $4.25
Souley Vegan has had a lot of press and recognition from outlets like Food Network, Diner's, Drive-Ins, and Dives, SFGate, and more. Guy Ferari even states that its a "perfect assortment of comfort style Southern inspired dishes with a totally awesome vegan menu. The range of Louisiana Creole here is simply incredible and simply put, non-vegans enjoy the dishes just as much!" -Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives
Other food items that I would like to try in the future are the Fried Okra, Seitan Chick'in and Waffles, and Creole Pop'ens to name a few!
I love the atmosphere of the restaurant too. Super welcoming and you feel a huge presence of the culture and decorations of the place. Will definitely see me for seconds...and thirds.
