Stellar soulfood at Southern Cafe in Oakland

selori | Feb 2, 200205:21 PM

Just had lunch at the Southern Cafe at 2000 MacArthur Blvd. The food was GREAT! I had the fried oysters-my companion had the breaded pork chops. I have been to many a soulfood restaurant here in the east bay; this one was superb and the most inexpensive of its couterparts. Each meal comes with three sides, which include greens, cabbage, yams, mac & cheese, corn, cornbread dressing, potato salad...all meals also come with a great corn muffin. I recommend the cabbage! Both oysters and pork chops were crispy and flavorful on the outside, juicy and tender inside. Soul food lovers: run, don't walk over to the Southern Cafe.
