DejaVu Creole Soul Food & Vegetarian Restaurant Restaurant Review

: A tiny, former downtown church house is home to this Memphis eatery, set with only six tables. And it packs them in at lunch. Though Southern-style cooking isn’t typically vegetarian-friendly, the menu at this modest "soul food" joint features both meat and vegan entrée options. To make both sides happy, all of the side dishes --- red beans and rice, collard greens, smothered okra --- are free of meat and animal by-products. Chef Gary Williams dishes out such classic Cajun favorites as alligator stew, shrimp Creole, and crawfish etouffée. Meatless mains include barbecued tofu, fried vegetable rolls, and a mock chicken salad sandwich that could fool any omnivore. Many of the desserts, including a rich chocolate cake with strawberry sauce, are vegan.
