December 1 through April 30
The Good Hearted stopped by The People's Market today and had a bite at vegan soul food popup 'South', which is residing at the market until the end of April 2013.
We tried a lobster roll ($12) which was delightfully simple and delicious. The fresh roll was stuffed with delicate and tender vegan 'lobster', mayonnaise and herbs.
We also gave the Gumbo ($12) a go, and were impressed that the broth was really packed with flavour. It had generous amounts of vegan prawn, sausage, corn on the cob and other veggies in it.
The crab cakes ($10) were probably my favourite dish (because they were fried perhaps?!) and word must have spread, because they sold out in the time we were there. They were deliciously crispy and well seasoned, and the creamy dipping sauce just sealed the deal.
All of the dishes came with a wedge of watermelon which was a nice touch being a warm day. The refreshing lime and jalapeno lemonade ($4) is also highly recommended to wash it all down.
Word has it that the menu will be changing regularly, so don't be surprised if what we tried isn't available when you pop by.
