After my husband and I toured his sister, Jeanne, around San Diego last week, we went to Casa de Luz. My sister, Michelle, and her partner, Linda, were meeting us, but they weren’t there yet so we ordered a pot of peppermint tea.
I looked at the menu board while we were waiting. It confused me. I didn’t see a list of menu items anywhere. Not wanting to look stupid, however; I didn’t ask anyone to explain.
Before we finished the tea, Michelle and Linda arrived.
We all went up to the counter, and my sister immediately figured out the menu. They don’t have a list of items because they only serve one entrée. Each day they make a unique vegan dish, and that’s what they serve for the day. You can order just the main dish or you can get it along with soup and/or salad. We all got the works!
The night we were there they had a Mexican style meal with a burrito, beans and guacamole. Everything tasted fresh and delicious! And with the unlimited soup and salad – none of us left hungry.
When we finished dinner, Linda picked up the book, Eat to Live by Joel Fuhrman that was for sale in the restaurant. Although I hadn’t read the book, I knew it promoted a plant-based diet, so I encouraged her to buy it and to give it to me when she finished it. Linda, the kind woman that she is, bought two books and gave one to me. Thanks Linda!
I’ve already finished reading Eat to Live, and loved it. If you haven’t read it, I highly recommend it. If you have read it, what did you think?
