Suppenkuche German Restaurant

San Francisco - June 25th

After a long ride there are few things better than a fine German meal and an ice cold beverage. So I set off for a restaurant in downtown San Francisco where the food was authentic and the conversation was robust. At Suppenkuche it was much more than just another meal, this was a place where people from many different backgrounds came to share their storiesI came in alone, but I quickly made friends and before I knew it I was right in the middle of all the commotion. There were joyful talks of a city that brought many people together and there seemed to be a genuine appreciation for our quince qualities that separated us. This led to a conversation on why San Francisco is a place of such acceptance and diversity. Perhaps it was the weather, or maybe the delicious food. We concluded that it was a culture that encouraged open interaction between many ethnicities and social groups. It was not about the fear of our differences, but rather it was coming together to understand how we are the same in many ways.
