Brenda’s French Soul Food San Francisco’ve visited San Francisco many times but I never tried the soul food. ended that run on my last visit.’s was pretty busy at dinner time but there was still a few tables left.  Like how the place is decorated.  Interesting mix of modern and bayou style. tried the gumbo.  There was a rich flavor of the bayou.  Many complex and delicious flavors especially from the sausage. chicken was crunchy and had a strong flavor.  A bit stronger and there could be heat.  Meat was tender and a bit juicy.  Taste between Popeye’s mild and spicy thus I’d call it almost spicy. pork ribs were fall off the bone tender and there was some of the same flavor I tasted from the fried chicken. was a fried catfish special that was tempting me but I was too full.  Service was friendly and speedy.  I liked the flavor profile of the foods I tried.  Next time I need soul food in SF I’m hitting Brenda’s.

    The fried chicken looks delicious. Did you consume all three items by yourself?!

      My kid helped! She ate most of the gumbo and I had most of the chicken. 🙂
