Soul food: "known simply as 'food' in cafes/diners across the South, it's a rare species out here," says cant talk...eating. But Mama Joan's Soul Food, on a dismal stretch of road near the 110, is as good a soul food joint as cant talk...eating has had in Los Angeles. All the standards are there: fried chicken, oxtail, meatloaf, short ribs. A meal with two sides and corn muffins will run you about $10, and they've got real sweet tea, too.
