Harlem Seafood Soul

Community Focused and Eco-Friendly Soul Food 

About the Business

Harlem Seafood Soul is the the first and only eco-friendly food truck in Harlem. Besides selling delicious seafood and soul food on the streets of Harlem, Harlem Seafood Soul also caters to a local organization focused on young women’s empowerment and to community church groups.


Tami, a Harlem native, was instilled with an entrepreneurial spirit at a young age when she cooked and sold hot dogs from her family’s cart at fairs and other events. After many years working in other industries, Tami returned to her first love and created Harlem Seafood Soul to showcase her seafood recipes and her grandmother’s signature mac & cheese bites recipe. Start Small Think Big matched Tami with pro bono attorneys to assist with contract drafting, corporate governance, and intellectual property.
