Lunch with Soup etc.

Lunch with Soup etc.

Short answer: skip the soup and the etc. as well.

Kate and I went walking along Broadway, looking for a likely lunch spot. We both like soup, so we decided to try out Soup etc..

The etc. consists manually of sandwiches, although there are some sweet treats as well. I decided to go for a small Wild about Shrooms! with a roast beef sandwich. Kate had a small Canadian Split Pea with a piece of bread on the side.

Well, I really like wild mushrooms. So that's what I saw, missing the crucial "about" part of the phrase. What I got was Campbells-esque: a thick, starchey mushroom soup that could have come out of a can anywhere. Ditto for Kate's pea soup.

The sandwich was OK. The whole thing was pre-made, and wasn't very flavourful. The bread was a piece of baguette, and not that big. The price only came to $10 for both of us, but we left feeling hungry.

It's a neat idea, but the food simply isn't very tasty. I still love soup, but not the Soup etc. kind.

Yep, that was my experience as well- they're no Soupspoons. I can't remember what it was I had, but it was lukewarm and goopy and obviously sitting around all day.

When next in the neighborhood, I recommend Galing Galing (Philipino family style- let the ladies guide your choices) across the street or Rangoli (which I believe someone on this site has found). Or a sandwich from Memphis Blues.
