Brother and sister Bryan and Nicole Lewis embarked on their food truck venture in September, focusing on food that reflected the Tulsa community.
Dope Soul’s menu changes every few weeks depending on the season and its event schedule. Dishes range from $5-$20. Right now, garlic marinated chicken is a dish Nicole has been perfecting, and it has received rave reviews from patrons. Another menu staple are pupusas, which come two to an order. The Latin American dish has seasoned masa filled with chicken, pork or a vegetarian option, then fried and topped with a tangy vinegar slaw with cabbage, onions, peppers and cauliflower.
Vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free options are typically featured on the menu, too.
Like others, Dope Soul was counting on the spring and summer festival season for business, but the Lewis’ were able to book employee appreciation events for Reasor’s and set up the truck in neighborhoods during the pandemic.
They’re also adding Hawaiian shaved ice, funnel cakes and other carnival desserts to the summer menu lineup.
The Lewises will notify customers of their more permanent post-pandemic locations. Find the truck at facebook.com/dopesoultulsa.
