Delicious Southern Cuisine (DSC) will be returning for the fifth time at the 12th annual Taste of Soul (TOS). The TOS alums will be returning with the soul food the community has come to love on Crenshaw Blvd. DSC is looking forward to meeting old and new customers at the festival this year.

The family trio of Vidal Cortes, Adelita Tecuanhuehue and Adriana Cortes brings traditional soul food: mac and cheese, greens, yams, po’boys, fried chicken, and catfish with a Mexican twist. Vidal is the main chef who has been cooking soul food for decades.

“Twenty-eight years ago, my father started working at Boulevard Café,” said Adriana, co-owner of DSC. “Locals will recognize the name.

“He started as a dish washer really, it was just a job but little-by-little, he started filling in, helping out. He was basically taken under the wing of the chef there and learned everything there was—he fell in love with the cuisine.”
