Dulan's Soul Food Kitchen
23 Essential Black-Owned Restaurants You Should Know in LA
Helmed by “King of Soul Food,” Adolf Dulan, a social worker-turned-chef whose LA restaurant history dates back 40 years and includes the famous Aunt Kizzy’s Back Porch that was known for serving the best Southern food on the West Coast during its 15-year run. In 1999, Dulan debuted his cafeteria-style Dulan’s Soul Food Kitchen, which quickly became a favorite for its filling family-style Sunday dinners, eventually opening a second location with Dulan’s on Crenshaw. Soul food is best enjoyed with company, so order Dulan’s steal of a Family Meal with one whole chicken, three large sides, and four cornbread muffins for just $28.95, but you’ll want to smother your chicken for an additional $3, and while you’re at it, add a large peach cobbler pie to your order for under eight bucks.
