Shoals Sound & Service
Shoals might appear to be a trendy Deep Ellum cocktail bar, but it’s also a vegan restaurant that even carnivores can enjoy. The plant-based menu, while small, boasts a distinctly Latin American flair, with arepas a specialty. Get the mushroom-lentil picadillo empanada, the wonderful Latin fried potatoes tossed with pickled onion and chimichurri, and, for dessert, the strawberry empanada. Happy-hour food and drink prices are an incredible bargain here, so sit up front at a window-side table for prime people-watching.
