My former Swim Coach, German trainer and buddy, Albert Feil’s son Michael Feil opened a beautiful vegan restaurant in Mission Seashore space of San Diego. The restaurant known as, “Soulshine.” We tried actual laborious to get in right here a number of instances on our three week trip earlier than we left, however the site visitors and parking had been a tricky problem. After all the important thing ingredient causes for the parking competitors was good sunny heat climate on the seashores, nearly a assure for an extended hunt in parking. Lastly on a cloudy overcast Sunday afternoon April 30th, the day simply earlier than the beginning of “Might Grey” & “June Gloom” (each San Diego Climate Anomalies) we received fortunate. My parking solely allowed me 30 minutes, so we simply had sufficient time for a snack and drink.

My spouse had the Apple Crisp made with Granny Apples with Date Caramel and Coconut Whipped Cream and I had the spicy Aztec Fudge Brownie made with Chili and Chocolate along with a Sauce Duo (Caramel and Chocolate) and strawberries. These flavours had been significantly wealthy tasting and also you’d by no means know they had been from a Vegan recipe. Nothing just like the generic bland substances you’d anticipate from a vegan dessert offered on the native Sprouts or WholeFoods retailer. These flavors had been for actual.

Undecided if anybody took any actual observe of the decor within the Cafe picture above, but it surely’s clearly very Scandinavian in each type design and lightweight colors. And the grey cloudy day we had sure matches the same old Scandinavian local weather we’ve in Gothenburg Sweden again dwelling. One other rarity in Scandinavia is the open out of doors eating expertise which works right here as oppose to Gothenburgs nearly common rain and misty overcast.

The view from this picture above the place we had been sitting faces instantly on the kitchen the place all of the meals was ready. However have a look at that giant clean area above the kitchen window. One thing is lacking so far as artwork and I believe a variety from the Pepperland Artwork Deco period would possibly go a great distance in brightening issues up and sticking with the theme. This is a number of gifs under, however simply unsure how a transferring gif ccould be utilized to a wall.

After all Pepperland Blue Meanie Artwork Deco would possibly conflict with the softer colors of Mike’s Scandinavian Design and perhaps extra to the liking of the Bohemian seaside neighborhood to the south throughout the San Diego River channel, in any other case generally known as Ocean Seashore. Critically people, drive by downtown Ocean Seashore and the folks have not advanced for the reason that 1960s. However surprisingly I would extremely advocate this glorious Cafe in Mission Seashore and it is nice lay again open air eating expertise. Right here is an excerpt from the Cafe’s web site about Chef Michael Feil.
