Soul Food at Tacoma's Southern Kitchen
It’s simply not possible to walk away from Southern Kitchen hungry; you’re much more likely to walk away carrying a doggie bag packed full of fried chicken, red beans and rice, and mashed potatoes. This little corner cafe is always humming with takeout and sit-down diners who know how deliciously addictive their soul food is. Here, breakfast can mean whole fried catfish or liver and onions, and the “veggie platter” is four sides and a sweet, fluffy corn cake. First-time visitors should try the fried chicken and collard greens, but everything is tasty and freshly made. If you have a sweet tooth, go for the strawberry lemonade, served in an oversized mason jar with a proud dollop of whipped cream on top.
