The Southern V

Over the  Summer I pretty much stalked Jenne’ of Sweet Potato Soul during her road trip from New York to California.  During her trip she stopped at some amazing vegan restaurants.  I made a list of some of the ones she mentioned so that I could try them out for myself if I had the opportunity.

One of the places she stopped at that caught my eye was The Southern V in Nasvhille, Tennessee.  The Southern V caught my eye because of their Hot Chik’n Biscuit.  I loooooooooooved the Hot Chicken and Fish in Nashville prior to me changing my eating habits.  I didn’t think I’d find a vegan alternative and then behold… THE SOUTHERN V! Every year for Thanksgiving I travel to Nashville to spend the holiday with my family so I knew it would be the perfect opportunity for me to stop by.

The Southern V is a to-go style restaurant that offers amazing southern inspired dishes for breakfast and dinner. I went during breakfast just shortly after they opened and the line was quite long.   There were so many delectable options to choose from on the menu and it was reasonably priced!

After much deliberation I finally decided to get a combination of things.  I got the Hot Chik’n Biscuit, Veggie Scramble, and Potato Casserole.  Everything was delightful…  well I didn’t really like the Veggie Scramble by itself, but once I mixed it with the Potato Casserole it was BOMB I wish i knew the recipe because I’d make the potato casserole for breakfast weekly!  The Chik’n Biscuit definitely was my favorite part of the meal!  It reminded me of the hot chicken I would get from my favorite spot in Nasvhille.  It had a good amount of heat to it.  But of course…  I grabbed my trusty dusty ghost pepper from my purse and spiced it up a bit.

I probably should have shown what the chick’n looked like… but I was hungry!

I also got a Waffle, for breakfast the next day. They use cinnamon in their batter which made it really good.


The next morning  I chopped up some berries and topped it with the new Coconut Whipped Cream from Whole Foods…. I forgot to snap a pic, but it was pretty delightful!

Side note: the young lady that was taking orders was so super cute, and her hair… GOALS!

Things to Keep in Mind if You Plan to Visit The Southern V

They are only open on Saturdays and Sundays

Food is only available while supplies last….

There is a 4 donut limit for each customer.

Be prepared to answer the question of the week.  Last week’s question was “What’s something you hope to accomplish this week?”  I thought this was a cute touch, and reminded me of the goals I had set for myself that week and how much progress I had made.

There is no indoor seating, but they do have cute little benches and tables for outdoor eating.

There is no indoor seating, but they do have cute little benches and tables for outdoor eating. e prepared to wait. Their service is pretty fast, but there seems to always be a bit of a line.  But, I recently heard that they are moving to a larger location due to their popularity (I hope it has the cute outdoor seating).


I seriously can’t wait to get back to Nashville in the spring  so that I can go to the Southern V again… next time I’m going for dinner and I’m getting dessert!

Special shout out to my cousin Wynona for being more than accommodating during my visit to Nashville, she made sure that I didn’t miss out on anything during my first vegan Thanksgiving.  Oh and another shout out to my cousin Adrianna who insisted on putting bunny ears behind my head in every picture I took.
