Great soul food in Harlem that's not Sylvia's or Amy Ruth's?

Hey guys, so I've been to the two aforementioned places several times now and have found them disgusting. It's all grey cafeteria food.

Am I missing something here? I have to imagine there are better, more authentic places than these two in Harlem. KFC is honestly better than what I've been served. Besides Red Rooster (which isn't straight soul food anyway) I haven't heard of any others. Recs? Are these two really the best and I just don't like this cuisine? :)
