You’ve seen her shoes all over San Diego. Welcome to our November panel Noelia Pahissa from Avarcas USA!
1. Where does your inspiration come from?
Sunsets, long strolls and running help clear my mind and invite inspiration. In fact, my most creative and inspirational ideas come while I’m running.
2. What is your big why? What keeps you going professionally?
Having a passion for what I’m doing. It keeps me working hard. Without this passion there’s no excitement.
3. Favorite San Diego restaurants?
My favorite restaurant is Javier Plasencia’s new Bracero Cocina in Little Italy. Love their grilled octopus! Also when I’m homesick, we go to Costa Brava in Pacific Beach to enjoy some tapas. Their patatas bravas with all i oli and an Estrella Dorada beer on draft, sheer perfection!
4. Favorite guilty pleasure
Watching a sunset from our patio with a glass of wine. I have to confess that I do it very often!
5. One random fact
I’m addicted to olives. We came back from Barcelona recently where I visited my local market. It was filled with exceptional and colorful displays of all kinds of olives that ignited my five senses. I bought bags and bags of many enticing varieties that only last few days.
