We Make Tastebuds Happy
The essence of good food and music starts with the essence of good people. Essence Lounge is the collaboration and brainchild of partners Christina Hernandez and Natural Allah. Christina is of Puerto Rican descent and brings the flavors of Old San Juan and a New Yorican flare to the table. Natural is no new comer to the Tacoma scene as he was co-owner of Vinum Lounge in downtown Tacoma and Soul Restaurant in the Proctor District of Tacoma.
"We founded Essence Lounge Tacoma with the idea of bringing our family's best recipes to the forefront of the local Tacoma food movement."
We specialize in using the freshest ingredients and old fashioned techniques to create home cooked meals that are delicious and oh so satisfying. Recipes hailing from the American Deep South to the shores of Puerto Rico and Peru, you will NOT be dissatisfied!
This is the best soul food you will find in Washington state at least!! The environment is great and everything about it is fantastic from the food to the customer service. I'll always go back!
For us here at Essence, food is joy. Whether it is in our space or yours, we want to share that joy with you. Have questions about the menu, to go orders, catering specials and more? Please contact us!
We love making our customers happy and can’t wait to meet you!
