Bringing a taste of Southern US hospitality to Tokyo, Soul Food House is the place to go if you’re craving some good eats. Nestled in Azabu-Juban, Soul Food House is the epitome of soul food dining that can be found across the southern states of America.
Opened in 2015, this family-owned restaurant will delight your senses beyond that of taste (although, your tastebuds will definitely be dancing). Jam to some jazz, blues, and gospel while you eat and treat yourself to some of the best hospitable services in Tokyo’s dining scene. With servers who are mild-mannered, polite, bilingual, and kind, you’ll feel like you’re a truly welcomed family member.
When you visit, you’ll know truly amazing soul food hospitality and maybe even feel homesick for a place you’ve never visited. If you’re from the South, get ready to cry tears of joy over the nostalgia from the first greeting to the last bite.
With a warm, rustic interior, Soul Food House is run by David and LaTonya with a desire to serve up authentic American dishes, and do they hit the nail on the head with their diverse and huge menu!
Get ready for their breakfast menu of chicken and waffles, grits, buttermilk biscuits and gravy. No matter what time you visit, their grand menu is open as well. Come hungry (we skipped breakfast) in order to fill up on Creole jambalaya, BBQ pork ribs, country-fried steak, fried okra, homemade mac-and-cheese, and so many other delicious options that you’ll definitely have to visit again just to try everything!
Get there when the doors open—or better yet, make a reservation in advance to ensure that you get a table. Space is limited and after only 30 minutes from opening, the restaurant was already more than half-filled!
Whether you came for a home-cooked meal that “sticks to your ribs” or want to find catering for an event. Soul Food House’s LaTonya and David Whitaker are sure to be able to lend you a hand.
We also hear they do an amazing Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner!
