Affordable Tallahassee

Just ate at Tallahassee's only Peruvian restaurant, Las Brasas. While the decor is in need of direction, the food was tasty and affordable. Would recommend for lunch or a casual dinner. I ate their most popular dish, a kind of steak or chicken stir fry called lomo saltado, replete with fries in the dish itself and a side serving of rice. Their cilantro based dipping sauce that came with our order of empanadas elevated that dish as well.

Also, I recently enjoyed an unusually delicious and healthy vegan meal from the Black Hebrews operating out of the Soul Veg food cart in the Beta Bar parking lot. I was surprised at how good it really was. Certainly an original Tallahassee option, particularly considering our previously discussed BBQ issues.

  1. Can you normally find the Soul Veg food cart in the Beta Bars parking lot? I have seen it downtown before and always wanted to try it. If you enjoy that type of food, you might also like the food at New Leaf Market. I ate a vegan chili there yesterday made with Seitan, black beans and corn-it was awesome!

      There is a Soul Veg food cart is on Kleman Plaza, behind City Hall next to the Mary Brogan, every weekday from 11-3.
