Authentic Louisiana Creole Flavor. 100% Plant Based


Keep an eye out for our soon-to-be-released revamped menu featuring new dishes and old favorites, all showcasing our signature Louisiana Creole flavor-profile.

Freshly prepared food in combination with house mixed spices and love for what we do proves to be the recipe for a phenomenal dining experience, centered around the distinctive flavors of the south.

Though our menu is pretty extensive, we don’t resort to short cuts and reheating frozen food. All our food – right down to the Seitan Steaks and the “Calamari” – is prepared from scratch in our kitchen with patience, hard-work and love.

If you are confused or overwhelmed, just look for the customer favorites (💜) on the menu.

  • Words can’t express how honored I was to meet Ms. Leah Chase in the 2017 while in New Orleans.

Dear Ms. Chase (Also known as The Queen of Creole Cuisine) was the Executive Chef and Owner of the the infamous Dooky Chase’s Restaurant that opened in 1941 in New Orleans Louisiana. 
I so admired Ms Chase as a business woman, entrepreneur, civil rights activist and the list goes on...Dooky Chase’s Restaurant has historically been a community space of love and political conversation and was the first restaurant that black and white people would come to sit and eat during a time when all establishments were segregated.

I was so humbled and honored to sit down and talk to this woman of such strength, a matriarch in her community. 
She told me to move there because New Orleans needed fresh minds and a fresh outlook on things.

My sincere condolences to the family.  The beautiful Ms. Leah Chase 1923-2019
  • Happy to partner with @macys and @kpthrive for this food demo ! Thanks for the invite @macys 💙 This event is open to the public ;) I just love this @iamtamearradyson ...see you June 16th SF ! 
  • When Souley Vegan was first launched in November of 2006 at a local Farmers Market my son Aquil was 12 years old. 
We would get up at 4am to prepare for the market. I on the food and him loading and organizing the van.

Our first day at the market I told him, “ok, I’m on the food and your on the money” we both learned this business together. 
Times when I was fatigued and nauseous from exhaustion, he would say “mom go sit in the car and I’ll finish this up” 
Him being my, “mom everything is going to be ok” support at the time at such a young age. 
Though when he got older he ventured out to do his own thing. 
I’m grateful he is working with me again. 
I’m proud to be featured together as Power Players of 2019 @angelenomagazine so many great things to come. 
Congrats Son on your first magazine feature!
