“My husband is from the States, and my dad is from the States. Soul food is in our roots, it’s in our blood,” says Kita Scott. She runs The Soul Shack catering and take-out with her husband, the chef, Philly Scott. The pair are currently looking for the perfect spot to set up a small restaurant, but for now are known for the hearty meals they’re dishing out from the Army Navy Air Force Club (2409 Maynard Street) Fridays and Saturdays.
From classic southern soul eats, to jerk chicken, fish and chips and curry, the ever-changing menu is full of affordable meals. “We’ve got the best Philly cheesesteak in town,” says Kita of the $6 sandwich. “And my husband says if it’s not, it’s on him.” If you’re craving home-cooking and it’s *not* a weekend, Soul Shack offers pick-up orders daily (call 225-3463) as well as catering for events.
