Harlem's Soul Food Secret – You'll hear people rave about Sylvia's, Amy Ruth's or SpoonBread Too, but you don't hear Aahirah's Palace cross the lips of soul food epicures. Perhap's it's because the name is a little hard to remember or because it's overshadowed by it's neighbor Amy Ruth's however, this establishment is deserving of it's own kudos. It's a little less crowded than Amy Ruth's because most people haven't caught onto the fact that it's there. At Aahirah's, they offer heart smart pork-less soul food served on white linen table cloths. They do not play up to the somewhat campy "Southern" decor that soul food restaurants often adopt to give their customers a contrived perception of authenticity, and they don't need to. You won't sit on straw woven highbacked wooden chairs here and there are no antique pictures of departed family memebrs on the walls, but don't be fooled by the lack of artifice. The food at Aahirah Palace is absolutely delicious, it's cheaper than it's neighborhood competitors and you don't ususally have to wait for a seat. I suggest the smothered turkey chops and mac & cheese.
delicious food – This place has great soul food! Very delicious and the staff is very friendly. I would recommend this place to everyone.
