Adolf Dulan, Founder of Dulan's Restaurant, Dead at 83

Adolf Dulan, originally from Luther, Oklahoma, rested peacefully as he ascended on to a better place. Adolf was the self proclaimed “The King of Soul Food” in Los Angeles. Adolf and his family has reigned over the Los Angeles food scene for nearly 40 years. As a successful restaurateur, Adolf and the Dulan family started  Hamburger City in the 70s, Aunt Kizzy's Back Porch in the 80s and early 90s, and Dulan's Soul Food Kitchen, now managed by Terry Dulan and family. 

 Adolf was committed to providing generous portions, good service, and food that reminds one of being at grandma’s for Sunday dinner for his patrons who live, work, and shop in Inglewood and surrounding areas. 

 In the community, Adolf was recognized by many organizations and received numerous commendations including: Community Based Business of the Year Award by the Black Business Association, and most recently, 2016 Small Businessman of the Year from the Greater Los Angeles African American Chamber of Commerce. In addition, Adolf had been lauded by the California State Assembly, Congresswoman Karen Bass and US Representative Maxine Waters for his dedication to service and creating thousands of job opportunities in the community.
