I tried this soup at a fantastic restaurant called Mistral in Santa Rosa, California. It was the most incredible soup experience my taste buds have ever savored. This soup is a 3 part harmony: first a creamy, smooth texture of the eggplant followed by a pleasingly hot spicy taste of the pepper and finally an after taste of sweet pear ... so good that you wanted to take every spoonful slowly and let it play its music on your palette......
