Miso soup is ubiquitous at Japanese and Asian fusion restaurants across the Bay area, but when was the last time you actually noticed eating it? Maybe necessity is the mother of invention, because Grass Root has a re-imagined version made for their raw diet customers. Dip a spoon into the murky pool of subtly sweet coconut water (yep, straight from the hairy nut) and miso paste blossoms, filling the bowl with a cloud of nutty, salty seasoning. Floating atop the soup are strands of shredded coconut noodles that are tender enough to mimic the real deal. Its enough to make me think raw isnt such a bad idea after all. 2702 Florida Ave. N., Tampa, 813-221-7668.
