Soulfly Chicken has carved out a new spot in Miami’s vibrant Design District, bringing a fresh taste of American comfort food with a Southern twist. Located at 140 NE 39th St. #241 in Miami, this expansion marks an exciting chapter for the fast-casual dining spot, which has quickly become a local favorite since its initial launch as a food truck in 2021.

Chef Troy Tingling, the culinary mastermind behind Soulfly Chicken, blends his Jamaican-American heritage with his extensive global cooking experience to create a familiar and inventive menu. After retiring from a successful career as a private chef, Chef Tingling’s passion for accessible, high-quality food led him to the bustling streets of Miami, where Soulfly Chicken first took flight.

This new establishment, nestled in Mia Market, a culinary hotspot known for its celebration of local chefs and flavors, offers more than just a meal; it’s a complete experience. Unlike its Wynwood predecessor, which focuses on delivery and takeout, the Design District location invites diners to sit and savor their meal in a more traditional restaurant setting.

The menu at Soulfly Chicken is a testament to Chef Tingling’s innovative approach to comfort food. It features classics like the four-piece chicken tenders and the “Taste of the South” sandwich, a delightful combination of boneless chicken breast, vinegar slaw, tomato, pickles, and the signature “Fly” sauce. For those seeking a bit more heat, the “Bird on the Run” sandwich, drenched in hot spice oil, offers a fiery twist.

But it’s not just about chicken. The menu boasts a range of new dishes, including fresh salads and the standout “Alabama Hot” sandwich, combining a boneless chicken breast with Alabama barbecue sauce and pickles. The “Fish Out of Water” sandwich, a crispy fried cod creation, adds a delightful seafood option.

In a move towards inclusivity, Soulfly Chicken ensures that vegetarians aren’t left out. Every sandwich on the menu can be made with plant-based chicken. The sides are equally tempting, featuring favorites like waffle fries, creamy macaroni & cheese, and unique additions like sweet potato biscuits and fried corn wheels.

Chef Tingling’s commitment to healthier eating shines through in their patented sound-wave technology, which cooks chicken faster and with 40% less oil. This innovative approach means diners can enjoy all the crispy, juicy goodness of fried chicken but with a healthier twist.

For dessert, Soulfly Chicken doesn’t disappoint. The signature banana pudding is a must-try, and for those who love a sweet drink, the peach cobbler and red velvet milkshakes are unique treats.

In Chef Tingling’s words, Soulfly Chicken isn’t just about great food; it’s about creating a space where everyone can enjoy a meal that’s both delicious and responsible. “It’s been so exciting to receive such a positive response from the community, allowing us to grow and open this new location,” he shared. “Our commitment to serving up the best fried chicken in Miami is at the heart of everything we do, and we look forward to serving even more guests at Mia Market.”

Soulfly Chicken’s new location in Miami is more than just a restaurant; it’s an invaluable addition to the city’s diverse culinary landscape. Open Sunday through Thursday from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Friday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m., it’s poised to become a new go-to spot for locals and visitors alike.
