Hey, Nooga. Editor Kristen here. I adore a good bowl of soup, and when the weather starts to cool down and local spots start adding soups to the menu — I can’t help but get excited.
A while back, I asked our readers + followers if they had any soup recommendations I needed to try, and y’all came through, to say the least. In honor of soup season, I thought I would share some of my favorites in town and some of the suggestions I received.
Wooden City, 203 Broad St.
Try the French onion soup made with bone broth, sourdough croutons, melted Swiss, and aged balsamic recommended by @myla_senff + @sarahdinic.
The Rosecomb, 921 Barton Ave.
Try out the seasonal soup offerings at this NorthShore spot, currently parsnip + rutabaga soup is on the menu.
Rembrandt’s Coffee House, 204 High St.
I’m in complete agreement with reader Noel L. who recommended this spot’s tomato artichoke soup. Pro tip: This soup pairs perfectly with the Say Cheese sandwich on sourdough.
Mezcla Cocina Y Cantina, 2 Cherokee Blvd.
Try the Carne En Su Jugo — a spicy beef soup made with steak, tomatillo salsa, pinto beans, bacon, cebollitas, chiles + toreados — recommended by @channell_scott
Tremont Tavern, 1203 Hixson Pk.
Who said a bowl of soup wasn’t the perfect side for a burger? Reader Helen A. recommends the white bean with bacon soup from this NorthShore spot.
Han-Mi, 3103 Broad St.
Reader Jenni suggested the scratch ramen + chicken noodle soup that’s made with homemade chicken broth. Bonus: I also recommend trying out the Mandu-Guk (dumpling soup), the dumplings and rice cakes are the perfect soup additions.
Vine Street Market, 1313 Hanover St.
Check out the soups of the day at this cozy market + bakery in NorthShore — @mattsmemoirs recommends the tortellini soup. If the Fiesta Chicken Chowder is on the menu, it’s also a must-try.
Have a favorite soup in town you’d like to recommend? Let me know for a potential part two.
