Vegan or vegetarian soul food in NYC or Brooklyn/Queens

Had a convo with a hotndog vendornthe other day who was telling me about his favorite soul food place in NY. It sounds delicious- mac and cheese, collards, yams, etc. But he said they use pork in EVERYTHING. SonI'm hunting for soul food like that but without the pork, and preferably without any mear or chellfishnat all.

Am I barking up the wrong tree? Does such a thingp exist? And, as a last resort, if there is no such place, at least tell me who has really great mac and cheese, without bacon etc.

  1. I think your best bet it champs in williamsburg:
    Biscuits and gravy, pulled "pork" sandwich and chicken fried seitan
    Avoid brunch, its insane busy but be sure to order dessert or get to go

    1. In manhattan for mac and cheese at non veg restaurants (but bacon free) try artisanal:
