Food is key to the heart. Soul food is the golden key.
Soul food is a cultural food originating from the Southern region of the US. Fried chicken, macaroni and cheese, and collard greens are some of the common types of soul food. The term “soul food” dates back to the 1960s and relates to African American culture. The significance of soul food is that it brings families and friends to a table to gather and eat.
Today, there are many food chains across the US that serve soul food. Traditionally, soul food is served for breakfast and dinner. But now soul food is becoming more popular for brunch.
A couple of weeks ago, I spent time with my fraternity during brunch at Soco restaurant which is located in Brooklyn, NY. The restaurant had a decent selection of soul food. The mimosas were ok. The fried chicken and red velvet waffles were to die part. The best part of the “soul brunch” was the coming together of my brothers.
