You no longer have to wait for family reunions to get some of that good ole’ home cooking. I’m talking about a spread of oxtails, macaroni and cheese, corn bread that melts in your mouth and greens to die for, I’m talking about soul food.

Owner Gregory Dulan has put the soul back in soul food at Dulan’s restaurant by serving this ethnic cuisine to customers of all backgrounds, bringing people of color and other ethnicities together.

“Our number one seller is our fried chicken hands down, we have an old fashioned recipe and a great batter.


However, our ox tails are popular, we sell out just about every day,” said Dulan.

If you have a sweet tooth, make sure you save room for dessert! At Dulan’s, customers can choose between sweet potato pie, lemon ice box pie, cream cheese pound cake and more.

With two locations, 202 E Manchester Blvd Inglewood, CA and Crenshaw Blvd

Los Angeles, CA there is enough food to feed the stomachs of hungry Inglewood and Los Angeles residents.

The soul doesn’t stop in the kitchen, Dulan’s restaurant is also a big catering company, that caters a lot of community events. Such as feeding 500 breast cancer survivors at the Baldwin Hills Relay for Life, Boy Scouts at West Angeles Church, Debbie Allen’s Annual Gala’s to help raise money for her dance academy and events for local high schools.

“We do a lot of giving back,” said Dulan. “It is really important for us to do that and support and be active in the community that helps keep us in business.”
Get your taste buds ready because Dulan’s restaurant and catering company is back to join this year’s Taste of Soul.

This year, Dulan is working on a booth design to be able to serve customers more efficiently by allowing them to serve themselves.


“We are designing a special tent, it is going to be the baddest tent ever, it’s going to really stand out. We are going to have a larger booth than most. I haven’t really decided on the menu yet,” said Dulan.
So, if you want to avoid the long lines make sure to stop by this booth and see what all the talk is about for yourself.

What’s next for the soul food restaurant? On August 15, they will serve at a BBQ to feed 600 walkers for the United Negro College Fund Walk for Education.
