Harlem Soul – Old Street

Food for the (Harlem) soul 🥰⁣ {#ad}⁣

There’s some new vegan comfort food in town so I grabbed my stretchy pants and headed on down to @harlemsoulldn! It’s near Old Street roundabout (on City Road) and is a huuuuuge venue!

Here’s what @thebigjolleyvegan & I ate and thought: ⁣

🌱Sassy Jax Taco w/ roast sassy jackfruit, guac, dry slaw & red pepper salsa⁣
✏️ The jackfruit was well cooked and textures worked well but the jackfruit was marinaded in marmalade which doesn’t do it for me. It overpowered the dish. Would love BBQ flavours instead!⁣
❓Order Again? Yes, with changes⁣
🌱⁣Maccy V’s – House vegan cheese sauce, maple roasted squash, grilled tomato & spinach, cheesy herb crumb⁣
✏️The top layer was cheesy but not melted, the bottom layer was nice & creamy. The flavour of the sauce needed to be bolder and cheesier as it relied heavily on cracked black pepper. I’m not sure the tomato or squash added anything⁣
❓Order Again? ⁣No⁣

🌱Vegan seitan & waffles w/ maple syrup⁣
✏️The “chicken” wasn’t like seitan I’d had before, it was more like stuffing in both texture & taste. This meant that it was more moist & quite herby. Almost like a vegan sausage rather than chicken. Loved the coating! ⁣
❓Order Again? Yes, with changes⁣

🌱 @movingmountainsfoods burger w/ dry slaw, beetroot aioli, vegan cheese, baby gem, tomato & vegan brioche⁣
✏️Loved the patty, aioli reminded me of cream cheese which I liked but was too thick for the burger. A BBQ sauce would worked better⁣
❓Order Again? Yes, with changes⁣

🌱The Harlem Soul fries w/ vegan mac, roasted jackfruit & tofu aioli ⁣
✏️The mac worked better here as did the jackfruit but the marmalade flavour again overpowered the dish. I’m just not a marmalade fan! Would work better with BBQ flavour. Aioli adds something different, onions were too chewy⁣
❓Order Again? Yes, with changes⁣
