Recommended: Soul Vegetarian on Georgia Avenue

A few friends recently have recommended Soul Vegetarian's Exodus, a vegan carryout at Georgia and Euclid, and it is tasty stuff.

I tried the mac and cheese (made with fresh soy cheese) and it was pretty delicious -- it really seems like real cheese. The veggie burgers are good too: my buddy recommends the Garvey burger and the vegan steak and cheese. Another friend, who isn't even a vegetarian, says he's a fan of the veggie burgers as well.

They also have some buffet style food, soul food like collared greens, and other items like tofu curry. Prices are reasonable: the Garvey burger, for example, is $5. My buddy recommended calling ahead and picking it up, as it can take awhile if you're getting it to go.

The Post had a positive review last year, and here's their Yelp page. It's run by a religious group called the African Hebrew Israelites, who I am pretty sure are not the same people who stand at the Metro and yell.

Soul Vegetarian Carryout is at 2606 Georgia Avenue NW, and their phone is 202-328-7685. They're open Monday through Saturday 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Sunday 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Here's their website, though there's not much on it.

For what it's worth, the African Hebrew Israelites are an extension of the Black Israelites, who are the people who stand at the Metro and scream. But they also are strict vegetarians, so it makes sense that they would have a good veggie restaurant.

Yes, but they're African Hebrew Israelites, which is somewhat different.
