We recently wanted to take my parents out to brunch in Cleveland. It ended up being lunch thanks to a late start, but it was no less delicious!
We decided on SOHO because it was close to the West Side Market and because we wanted to try the chicken and waffles. I had only been there once when they first opened and was looking forward to eating there again. Boy did we make a great choice!
It was surprisingly not packed at noon on a Saturday. We snuggled into a cozy booth and went about the tough task of deciding what to order. It's a small menu but everything sounded great.
We ordered coffee (delicious!) and nibbled on our complimentary biscuits while we decided.
My Mom was the adventurous one and ordered the Whiskey Glazed Tofu $13 (Truffle rice-otto, shiitakes, caramelized Vidalias, yams, baby kale, pecan crumble.) What an unusual and delicious dish!
She and I also ordered the Sweet Corn Chowder $5 (Fingerling potatoes, asparagus, touch of cream, basil-jalapeno pesto) - and it was amazing! Truly one of the best soups I've had.
My step Dad had the Gumbo Ya Ya $5 (Pulled pork, smoked chicken, sausage, shrimp, rice, tomato, dark roux, topped with pork rinds) and he loved it too.
For our entrees, my hubby and I couldn't resist the Chicken Mornin' Style
(with Rosemary waffles, peach maple syrup.) We each got a boneless thigh and breast with our waffles. To top it off, they serve homemade hot sauce which it packed full of flavor.
My step Dad chose the Seared Ribeye Steak $15 (with bacon, Worcestershire onions, horseradish hollandaise, sunny side egg.) It normally comes with potatoes but he's not supposed to eat carbs so they gladly swapped them out for asparagus.
It's a little pricey - our meal for four was almost $100 for lunch including tax and tip. This was with no alcohol, coffee only. That being said, we all loved our food and can't wait to go back.
