Soul Gastrolounge (Second Look)

We checked out Soul Gastrolounge a couple years ago and for some reason… we didn’t really like it. Despite our lack luster experience the place has always remained one of Charlotte’s most popular restaurants. A few weeks ago our friends wanted to hang out Soul and we reluctantly agreed. Thank God we did… Soul rocks!

We must have either ordered the wrong stuff or caught them on an off night the first time because this second look at Soul Gastrolounge left us wanting more, and more, and way more. Since we were able to go as a group and split the plates we ended up ordering a lot more than if we had gone alone. We tried the:

  • Garlic Shrimp
  • Chimichurri Beef
  • Dirty South Nachos
  • Sticky Veal Shortribs
  • Asian Glazed Pork Belly Tacos
  • Pan Con Tomate
  • Soul Korean BBQ Wings
  • Wild Mushrooms on Toast
  • Ahi Tuna with Sesame & Soy Drizzle
  • Duck Bahn Fi Sandwich

All of which was delicious and worth recommending but for me the star of the show was easily the pork belly tacos :)

  1. Soul is one of my favorite restaurants in Charlotte, but it sometimes can be hit or miss especially on a busy night! But I really can’t get enough…I love the pork belly tacos, bone marrow and sushi fondue roll!
