Soups On!

In Top Ten on November 4, 2011 at 2:07 pm
With winter just ahead, I’ve found myself once again scouring recipes for soups, stews and anything that can be made in a crock pot. There is just something comforting and lovely about coming home to a warm bowl full of your favorite flavors at the end of a chilly day. Having grown up in Hamilton with adventurous foodie parents, it’s always around this time of year that I start to crave some of the city’s bountiful bowlfuls! In view of this, I’ve compiled this week’s TOP TEN in honour of the city’s best soups… So grab a spoon and enjoy!
 
Tom Yum Seafood Vermicelli Soup from Ben Thanh Restaurant
Chicken Soup from Staropolskie Delikatesy
Lentil Soup from La Luna Restaurant
Stracciatella from La Cantina Restorante
Bangkok Soup from Lemongrass Restaurant
White French Onion Soup from the Ancaster Old Mill
Hungarian Style Goulash from Denninger’s Foods of the World
Vegetable Minestrone from Valentinos Place
Potato Cheddar Soup from Punch Bowl Country Market
Mushroom Consomme from The Courtyard

Feel free to add some of your favorites in the comments below so that during the winter months ahead we can all reference some ideas of where to go when only soup will do!

Cheers,
