Super Excited about yet another “SOUL FOOD” traditional restaurant opening up in the area!! Seattlites already make the drive to Tacoma for the original SOUL location and the eternally good Southern Kitchen, but now there is one more stop to make.  This is sure to be a great place to take visiting family or celebrate special occasions.  #SOULFOOD

Here is a piece from the Tacoma News Tribune:

The second Soul restaurant opened Monday across the street from Tacoma Community College. The opening brings a much-needed style of cuisine to that end of Tacoma.

Called Soul University Place, after the town that’s just across the intersection, the restaurant is a companion to the two-year-old soul food/Latin hybrid restaurant in Tacoma’s Proctor neighborhood.

While Soul in Proctor features a menu of American soul classics, such as fried chicken and fried okra, it also includes a heavy dose of Latin. Dishes from Peru, Puerto Rico and Cuba are listed on the menu.

“We’ll focus more on the soul food side,” said Talya Miller, Soul University Place co-owner, in October. She’ll run the restaurant with Soul co-owners Natural Allah and Jennifer Zaskorski, who will continue to oversee their Proctor Soul. Miller will head the new Soul location.
