|Pro-Flowers delivered this lovely plant,|
complete with rattan basket.
|The main floor is the restaurant; the second|
floor is home to their cooking school.
|I loved that the cuisine was not only plant based,|
but free of pesticides.
In print, it sounded good. But who can tell from something written down what the food will look like or taste like? The Saturday cuisine was listed as "Latin." I figured that would work for me, so I looked forward to digging in to a whole batch of new recipes I could try to copy. My daughter and I both agreed we'd go back in a heartbeat. Son-in-law would most likely accompany us just because he's a good sport. But I bet he'd chowed down on a hunk of meat before hand.
|My plate and the two chefs who created it.|
|Cheesecake has always been a favorite|
dessert but went by the way when I
became vegan. How nice to be able to
indulge myself with this delicious alternate.
The original Casa de Luz is in Austin, TX. I understand there are hopes for expanding the eatery into more places and if the offerings continue to be this good, I believe we'll see them popping up in more states. These days ever more people are choosing to eat healthy, even macrobiotically, and where there is a need, there is always someone waiting in line to fill it. I loved my time at Casa de Luz and the cost was on par with any upscale eatery. If you live in Austin or anywhere near San Diego and would like a new dining experience, give this restaurant a go. I bet you'll love the food.
