Macrobiotic Souen Meals

I am on a Souen kick (macrobiotic, vegan and vegetarian – but has fish restaurant) and I cannot get enough. For brunch Bobby and I went to Souen in Union Square. I got the Brunch A ($8.50, the best deal ever) again:

  • Kenchin-Tofu Drop Soup  – tofu, shiitake, burdock, carrot and watercress in kombu kuzu broth
  • Corn Bread (you can also get Spelt Bread or Sour Dough)
  • Steamed Vegetables (carrot, daikon, kabocha squash and greens)

Bobby got the Scrambled Tofu with Salmon ($10.50) – Served with brown rice, bread and yam and mesclun salad. You can also get this with Tempeh Bacon for $2 less, but we are not really fans of tempeh. Here is my phone picture:

I shared my soup, took most of my cornbread home, and ate Bobby’s yams. I also had a lot of their miso tahini dressing, which I posted a recipe for the other day.

When we got home we needed to relax, so we went across the street to a spa called Enliven. We got a Couples Massage – 60 minutes for each of us and we were next to each other (screen between us). It was really nice. The spa is very Traditional Chinese Medicine-y and I know they also offer acupuncture and other cool services. They have good reviews on Yelp.

For dinner I made a salmon head/neck that I got in Chinatown (I just boiled it with veggies and dill and miso). I also made a Porgy that I learned to cook at last week’s cooking class (which reminds me that I still need to post about that). And kabocha.

Tomorrow’s plans? I am going to try to get down to Souen in Soho at 10am for a talk with John Kozinski, who is apparently some famous macrobiotic dude. Then Bobby and I have a brunch double date with a friend. I think we’ll go to The Mudspot. (Anyone been there?)

What did/will you do this weekend?

    You need to order from Good Healthy on 75 and 1 — they have macro options there too, and I LOVE their mexican food!

    Wow! You really should be a spokesperson for Souen. :)

    @ Dori, I went to Good Health a long time ago. It’s a very small joint. Definitely a very ‘intimate’ setting.

    I baked cookies today for a friend! Rainy days call for baked goods.

    oh boy..good food, friends, massages and chill time? Sounds perfect in my book.
    2 years 3 months???

    I have plans to get a run in tomorrow and enjoy every second of outside time I can before another week locks me up indoors!

    I need to try scrambled tofu – I am curious to see if it’s comparable to scrambled eggs. A couples massage sounds amazing, too!

    That couples massage sounds awesome. We had something similar last summer in Turkey, we were laying on a marble altar in a Turkish sauna and we had a coffee bean scrub and a foam massage. HEAVENLY!

    Kabocha is never a “sad” meal if it makes you happy Maggie. :)

    Sounds like a wonderful weekend thus far. I will dine at Souen someday. I WILL.

    I’m all out of tahini. Ahh, used the last of it yesterday. Must buy more, mix it with miso, and then drizzle it on everything. :)
