The Great Green Hope: Pea Soup Andersen's

Pea Soup Andersen's is only pea soup-themed restaurant between Los Angeles and San Francisco.


Central Pennsylvania had toddler-sized burgers. Missouri threw rolls at our heads and served us sweet tea that made our teeth ache. And Santa Nella, California has... pea soup. As my mom always said, everyone's good at something, and Pea Soup Andersen's is good at split pea soup. It's also the only point of interest on I-5 between Los Angeles and San Francisco, unless you count the aforementioned smell zones. As unappetizing as the above photo looks, the soup is actually pretty tasty, or at least as tasty as pea soup can be. If you opt for a bowl of the non-bread variety, Andersen's offers all the soup you can eat which, in my case, turns out to be exactly one bowl.
