The Soup Spoon
Soups are honestly a rarity in my home. I can't remember when was the last time I made soup.
I do, however, enjoy soups alot. Especially tomato-based ones like the one in the photo above. That's beef goulash by the way. JF and I went to The Soup Spoon for dinner on our anniversary since it was raining cats and dogs the entire day and we couldn't go picnicking. I suggested The Soup Spoon because I've heard loads about it and I have friends who go there pretty often and swears by it. Besides, it was a cold cold day! And I knew I could really do alot better with some warm comforting soup.
The beef goulash was wonderful but JF preferred the Velvety Mushroom Stroganoff:
Geez, this mushroom soup has got to be the best I've ever tasted. Chockful of mushrooms and velvety to the core, this soup slides down your throat like honey - thick and creamy. Man, I like my beef goulash but I think the next time I head down to The Soup Spoon, I could do with a whole bowl of that mushroom soup myself. Mmmm... heaven.
Garlic Foccacia is another treat I enjoyed at The Soup Spoon, though this one was a bit too over-toasted:
Garlic ranks high in my list of favourite aromatics and this way of serving it is excellent. The sauce was lovely as well though a bit too sweet.
JF was craving for calamari so we had the Fisherman's Basket:
It's just fish, calamari, prawns, and crabmeat. It wasn't that fantastic (I've tasted better) but I think it satisfied his craving. :)
Overall, I think The Soup Spoon deserves credit for making the humble soup look like main course. I like this place alot and I'll be back soon. So tempted to try the bread bowl soup!
