Harlem Soul is replacing Boondocks on Old Street with more Americana

Harlem Soul is replacing Boondocks on Old Street

It's all change for Boondocks near the Old Street roundabout - as it's about to be replaced by a new restaurant - Harlem Soul. But it's not a complete change, as it's all still run by Bea Vo's Soul Food Enterprises, which also runs Stax Diner in Carnaby and Butterscotch Bakery (and previously Boondocks).

The new food-style for the restaurant is being dubbed as "American urban cuisine". The menu will include:

  • Snacks including wings, jackfruit tacos, soft shell crab and blackened Cajun popcorn shrimp
  • Buttermilk chicken and waffles in maple syrup (or the alternative crispy seitan on a vegan sweet potato waffle with maple syrup)
  • Burgers will be the main event, including "The Harlem" - two beef patties, shredded short rib, American mac & cheese, house pickle & Thousand Island Dressing
  • And desserts include Reece’s Pieces cheesecake and brownies.

For drinks/desserts, there will be freakshakes (with alcohol an option), over 30 craft beers as well as cocktails. On two floors, the lower bar will open late into the night with DJs, live soul acts and more. As for the look and feel, that's courtesy of graffiti artists.
