Jason Gordon, a doctor of Chinese medicine who has been in the health and wellness industry for nearly 20 years, opened Soul Tavern in Sunset Harbour. The gourmet vegan and vegetarian gastropub was designed to provide customers with a retreat from their hectic lives. Both the tranquil interior and picturesque Zen garden beckon diners to linger over their homemade herbal elixirs or craft cocktails rather than stare at their screens. Here, the staff promptly informs guests about the fact the cuisine is rooted in the ancient five-element principle intended to create peace within the mind, body, and soul. For example, the earth pizza ($16) gets its moniker because it features a miso base as well as chickpeas and caramelized onions — ingredients that Gordon says create harmony. It tastes good, plain and simple. Also popular are the eatery's vegan maki rolls. Gordon, who is a vegan, wanted people to get excited about the selection. So in the It's Good to Be a King maki ($15), ponzu-marinated king oyster mushrooms are paired with burnt eggplant, spinach, cucumber, asparagus, and avocado.
