Li’l Soul

Simply stated, I love food. My husband can testify to that. I like all kinds of food and been exposed to many different types of food.

MW raved about her experience at Li’l Soul on 111 Bishop Street a week ago. She’s from the South and said the food at Li’l Soul was just the best. I had to find out for myself.  Unfortunately, they are only open 11 a.m. – 2 p.m. which made it a little difficult for me since I don’t work in town. However, Li’l Soul does have a food tent at the Farmer’s Market at the NBC grounds on King and Ward on Wednesday from 4 – 7 p.m and a food truck.

I ordered the sampler plate ($10) which had cole slaw, cornbread, chili, collard greens, and a piece of chicken. I thought the food was okay. The  cornbread and the chicken had a honey butter topping which was a nice touch. The chicken thigh was not thoroughly cooked (bloody inside) but the chicken skin was crispy and tasty. The chili had black eyed peas which was unusual and a little spicy. It was fair. Collard greens and coleslaw were okay.

Honestly, I’ve had better Southern food. I haven’t tried the brisket but based on my experience, I don’t think I’d go back. MW loves Li’l Soul. I beg to differ.
