All-vegan Caribbean and Soul Food in Harlem
Every day the Uptown Juice Bar has 20+ dishes at the counter, which can be purchased a la carte or in a small, medium, or large plate.
The large plate is $9 + tax, which is your choice of 4 dishes.
The choices include several fake meat dishes, such as barbecue chicken drumsticks, and tofu dishes such as Caribbean jerk tofu. Additionally there are numerous side dishes such as kale, candied yams, peas and rice, etc.
Additionally, there are a number of menu items such as pizza and fish and chips that can be ordered individually.
In front is the juice bar which offers dozens of freshly made smoothies and juices, and homemade breads and deserts.

oh man this place is great. It's a smorgasboard of vegan soul food, and a great place to go to if you don't really know what you want and want to try just a little bit of a bunch of things that look great.
Pretty much everything I've had here is good, which is good since I can't remember the names of anything I've eaten from the deli and couldn't tell you what's what. They have lots of savory noodle dishes here, jerk dishes, "chicken" wings, even soy-cheeze pizza.
The only thing that kind of sucks about this place are the hours--I think they close at 9 every night, which is pretty weak for New York.
This place is awesome! They have *a lot* of different dishes, and they are all ready to be served! They scoop various dishes into your plate (I think you get 4 different kinds for the big plate). But unlike similar places, the food is not luke warm; it's hot and very very yummy! I also had one of their fresh juices and it was very flavorful!
They have a huge variety of food (maybe 20 + dishes) as well as vegan desserts and other baked stuff. They definitely get points for that.
The front part of the restaurant is really tiny, but at the back they have a seating area. I suggest sitting there and eating your food hot. Even though the place was super crowded, there was a lot of seating at the back.
It's really close to the train station which was really convenient for me; I wasn't expecting to find a vegan place so close. I would give them a 9 because they only seem to have disposable plates and forks, but they are SO cheap for New York, that I think I'm going to stick to giving them a 10.

The Uptown Juice Bar is in the heart of the Harlem's commercial district, at the intersection of 125th Street and Madison Avenue.
The 2 and 3 subway lines let off close by, and the ABCD and 4-5-6 lines all let off on 125th Street within 3 or 4 blocks.
