Soul Groove's chefs started cooking their fried chicken in pop-up and temporary kitchens in San Francisco's Mission District, getting fryers and stovetops wherever they could to serve a late-night soul food experience. They quickly garnered popularity, and, soon after, a kitchen of their own. They continue to prepare their signature Chicken Fried Soul sandwich, a bacon-wrapped, buttermilk-battered boneless chicken breast, fried and served between two maple-flavored waffles with jalapeño coleslaw and homemade barbecue sauce. The chefs also craft vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free iterations of the sandwich, as well as serving praline butter atop buttermilk waffles or biscuits made from scratch daily. Additionally, the chefs often conduct little experiments that result in off-menu treats, which may result in a new sandwich or a cure for the common cold. On a larger scale, the soul cuisine is available for corporate catering to businesses in Silicon Valley and the San Francisco area.
In addition to making delicious sandwiches, the Soul Groove crew enjoys giving back to their community. They have a mission to bring fine arts to inner-city kids, a mission they've helped fulfill by turning their dining room into a music-themed gift shop. In addition to playing soul music on vinyl records wherever they go, vintage art pieces coat the walls, little souvenirs cover shelves, and Soul Groove even sells its own line of clothing, allowing customers to both support charity and disguise themselves as employees so they can sneak into the kitchen and learn its secret recipes. Half of the proceeds from each item sold goes to the not-for-profit organization Today's Future Sound.
