Chinese and Soul Food Restaurant Opening This Month in Teaneck

Chef Shawnee Braggs has been a caterer for over twenty years, first cooking for celebrities and then corporate America in New York and Philadelphia.

As much of the world changed with the pandemic over the last few years, she’s decided it was time to make her own change and open a restaurant.

Coming later this month, Shawnee’s China Soul will offer a fusion of two popular cuisines: Chinese Food and Soul Food. Along with her Caribbean influences, she’s creating “beautiful and delicious dishes”. (View Menu)


The restaurant will first offer dinner service, with brunch added sometime in future. In addition to the main dining room, the space includes private dining in the Rose Room — named in memory of Braggs’ grandmother.

According to Braggs, she is aiming for a soft opening to begin sometime around September 15th.
