Almost hidden in Prospect Heights, a few blocks from the Brooklyn Museum is a cozy, quaint and cute restaurant called Cheryl’s Global Soul. I walked in on a Saturday and did not have a clue what to expect. I just heard that it was a really good soul food place. As soon as I walked in, Cheryl was instantly welcoming and told us to come in and have a seat. The host asked us if we’d like to sit in the front or the back. I had no idea what “the back” was because the place was so quaint but he led us to the cutest backyard seating area and I knew I was in the perfect place to dine.
Cheryl’s combines French, Asian, and Moroccan speciality dishes and gives it a southern flair. As a starter, I had their Cajun Chicken Wings. The wings were delicious. For the main course I had the Grilled Pork Chop au jus with Mango Chutney, French Beans and Roasted Potatoes. This meal was amazing. The pork chops were juicy and succulent and the mango chutney gave it a sweet kick. I also tried their Salmon, it was flavorful and seasoned to perfection.
Cheryl’s is also popular for brunch. Since dinner was so good, I decided to return the next day for brunch! This time I brought my sister because I knew she would enjoy it just as much as I did. We ordered off of the Brunch Pre-Fix menu which includes tea and a mimosa.
I thoroughly enjoyed the Brioche French Toast with Caramelized Apples, and Chantilly Cream. It was sweet, and light and I especially loved the cream. I’m a fan of whipped cream and this was even better. My sister was in heaven once she tasted her Buttermilk Pancakes with Mixed Berries, and Chantilly Cream. As a big pancake fan since childhood, she said it was one of the best pancakes she’s ever had.
Note: Cheryl’s is baby friendly. They provide high chairs and cups for kids.
