Flava is not your mother’s soul food cafe. Owner Sandy Hullum kicks out the cans, brings in fresh veggies, cuts back the salt, and makes everything from scratch. That still means great smothered pork chops, jerk chicken, barbeque brisket, turkey legs, catfish and real fried chicken. Hullum’s hand-formed burgers have their own following as do the accompaniments: collard greens, red beans over rice and extra cheesy mac-‘n’-cheese. Every soul food plate comes with cornbread and lemonade or strong iced tea with a hint of mint. Fans love the sweet potato pie and the distinctive coconut custard pie with a toasted, macaroon-like crown. **
