Land of Kush - Vegan Soul Food Baltimore

This storefront restaurant is great. Their collared greens, rice and beans, and live kale are great. I like the fake meat BBQ best. Try the BBQ over the rice and beans. They got a great review in the City Paper today. The owner is really nice. They will let you try anything and combine a platter anyway you want it. Just ask. Land of Kush has a very casual atmosphere and cool vibe. Even if you are not a vegetarian or vegan, you should give it a try. It is just good food.

  1. fake meat BBQ - That is just wrong. But I will have to try the place anyway.

      Cool! There is a similar place in DC, SoulVeg.

      I think both are affiliated with the Hebrew Israelites, a group of African-Americans that practice a variation of Judaism that includes only eating vegan food. They have a neighborhood in Dimona, Israel.

      At SoulVeg, I recommend the sweet potato pie and the vegan mac n' cheese.

        SimonF: Why not get your facts right before putting out false info! There's no overt religious connection at Land of Kush. I can't speak for SoulVeg in DC. Why was it necessary to bring it up? The food at Land of Kush is great, and the staff there is too - PERIOD! Want to know more about the owners? Check out their web site.

        > fake meat BBQ

        I really don't mind the imitation meat but most of these places focus so much on the "You won't believe it's veggie!" that they forget to serve good, hearty, vegetables. I guess they figure you can get veggies anywhere. Besides Greens the only veggies on the menu is the cabbage and squash combo.

          Graydon, I agree with you generally. They certainly have some items like that on the menu. Their live kale and raw sesame spinach are not like that at all. They have a tomato and cuc. salad that is great. They have great yams and rice and beans. I have had steamed broc. there, too. You can eat lots of good things on the menu that are not fake (I can't believe it isn't meat) entrees.

          BTW, Graydon. I love your hair and magazine. The Monkey Bar is great, too. I can't believe you post on this board.

            GC's a wig and an internet hoax. I thought we debunked this years ago.

            still does say clever things.

              People don't read each others' profiles. Many profiles are empty. Speaking of which,

              hill food, is your blog down?

              1. re: GraydonCarter


                I thought my comment made it clear that I had read your profile. I love the Monkey Bar. FWIW, I am not the basis for the Stones's song I took my handle from.

                Peace and Love,

                  ehh, I often accuse close friends of non-existence - no need for birthday cards that way.

                  my blog - just a wish, an idle thought. maybe someday. but then I have several fake and pointless ventures I claim. I did change the name the other day when it turned out somebody had a similar one. If I'm going to cause confusion, it's going to be on purpose.

            It does sound crazy but Land of Kush is fantastic. I wouldn't be surprised if ravenous carnivores even enjoyed it.

            Here's another good article about it:
