The Soul Kitchen

14107 E. Colfax Ave.
Aurora, CO 80011

The gumbo, the smothered bone-in chicken and the greens come from the Louisiana side of Jay Berry’s family. The fried-to-order catfish and chicken arrived with his Alabama kin. Everybody gets along at this Colfax Avenue eatery, especially with scratch-made cabbage with bacon, mashed potatoes and candied yams. The dessert list features Berry’s mom peach cobbler and chocolate-frosted yellow "desire" cake. Kirk’s gumbo is packed with shrimp, fish, sausage, okra, crab and chicken well-seasoned with filé powder and red pepper. **
