The Soul Spot is a small, counter-service halal place serving Southern and Caribbean food near Borough Hall in Brooklyn. The fried chicken and curry goat are filling and affordable, but our go-to order is the chicken dumplings, which are sweet and spicy and served over gravy, with sides of plantains and okra. If you work around Borough Hall or commute from Jay Street-Metrotech, get takeout here for lunch or dinner.
