I like getting myself a good cup of soup every now and then. (Not the Kolaveri type of soup, thank you very much!) Sitting down in a restaurant after a tiring day, relaxing, sipping from a piping hot cup of soup seems to be a great antidote for me against the stresses of everyday life.
So, naturally, I was thrilled when I spotted this place in Mantri Square mall that is exclusively dedicated to soups: The Soup Bowl. It is so good to see a restaurant that specifically serves healthy soups! Such a welcome change from all the junk food outlets!
We were initially hesitant to enter the place (I really don’t know why!), but once we did and tried their soups, we became fans. The OH and I are now regulars at The Soup Bowl, and have tried out several of the varieties of vegetarian soup that they serve. They do have a nice menu, largely consisting of soups, but they also have soupy pasta, garlic bread and sandwiches.
The OH swears by The Soup Bowl’s Tomato Soup, while I LOVE their Mexican Tortilla Soup and Sweet Corn Soup.
And, oh, I’m so in love with the cute little pots that they serve the soup in!
And, I like the fact that they are quite affordable. The prices are not at all over-the-top; they are pretty reasonable (I feel) for the quantity of soup that they serve per bowl.
And, I love that their soups taste good, and the way they should. They don’t have a highly artificial colour or very artificial or preservative-ey taste. They taste natural.
If you haven’t gone to The Soup Bowl yet, please do go soon! Highly recommended! 🙂
If you have been there already, I would love to know your thoughts on the place.
PS: A fun piece of information that I got courtesy of what I call the ‘Soup Wall’ at The Soup Bowl: The first soup was made of hippopotamus. The earliest archeological evidence for the consumption of soup dates back to 6000 BC, and it was hippopotamus soup!
