When we first arrived to NYC and we were asking around what we should do, someone suggest "Soul Food." Not knowing how it was spelled I assumed they were talking about "Seoul Food" as in Seoul, Korea.
However, if you simply walk around NYC you will see tons of "Soul Food" places, especially in Harlem.
So what is "Soul Food"?
Soul food is an American cuisine that is the traditional cuisine of African-Americans of the Southern United States and of black communities beyond. In the mid-1960s, soul was a common definer used to describe black culture (for example, soul music), and thus the name "soul food" was derived.
Apparently Waffles are a big part of Soul Food. I have no idea why, but everything is served with a waffle!
When they brought out the corn bread while we waited and decided what we wanted we knew this place was going to be GOOD. I mean...who doesn't like CORNBREAD!?
Pat sure does.
