Healthy Macrobiotic Cuisine

Serving organic, macrobiotic fare with Asian accents in a warm, soothing atmosphere for the past 20 years, with pretty lighting, light pastel walls and bunches of dried flowers. Starters include tahini noodles, tempeh with ginger vegetable sauce, tofu scrambled with scallions and carrots, and vegetable tempura. There are quite a few larger seafood and vegetarian courses, obento boxes and sushi, and sides of organic whole grain breads, steamed greens, homemade pickles, and marinated burdock root. Nutritious breakfast specials are served from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., and even the drinks are healthy, with fresh-squeezed juices, organic coffee and wines. Souen is a place that specializes in an American cuisine known for their vegetarian meals. Expect the average entrée to cost roughly $12 to $20, and you'll be fine if dressed casual.

I’ve visited Souen many times for many years. It is where I go for a “square” macrobiotic meal. I know it is simple, simple, and simple. Good miso soup keeps me warm during the winter. The vegan sushi is deliciously simple. Of course steam vegetables, rice and beans with a little pickled vegetable makes a real square macrobiotic meal, and many times that’s all I want.

Everyone is always raving about Souen so I figured I had to try it. I thought the atmosphere was absolutely beautiful and inviting, but I wasn't impressed with the food. In fact, I was disappointed with my meal, but perhaps that was because based on friends' experiences, I was expecting it to be the best meal I've ever have.

My friend and I sat upstairs, right at the gate that overlooks the main floor. I absolutely loved this location, as it was like an indoor balcony, allowing us to see everything that was going on both upstairs and downstairs, while not freezing outside. :) This place is cute, cozy, and inviting, and I'm hoping that I just happened to have a super average meal here. I do plan on returning.
