Where To Get Hot, Bubbling Bowls Of Soup In This Dreary Weather

These incessant rains and the cold can be a bummer, we know. But, it’s nothing a bowl (or two) of steaming/creamy/clear/meaty/hearty soup can’t fix. We point you towards the places where, for once, you’ll be glad to land in soup.

Punjab Grill

The rich shorbas at this restaurant sure have a way of perking you up. Try the Murgh Badami Shorba, a consommé of almonds and chicken with just a touch of spice,  or the Khumb Pudina Shorba, a wild mushroom concoction that’s enhanced with mint and garlic – and you’ll warm up in an instant.

Karama Restaurant

The spiced-up paya soup is one of the best inventions to troop out of an Indian kitchen, we think. The meaty broth, at Karama, brims with coriander, garlic, pepper and cumin. But the highlight remains the paya (leg of lamb) that’s cooked to a delicious tenderness.

Olive Beach

A bowl of soup with a touch of coffee, that’s what will keep you from snoozing off. The Mushroom & Coffee Soup, at Olive Beach, is a fine blend of mushroom and a dash of Arabica. A burst of sherry vinegar adds a zing to the hot soup. Equally delicious is the Moroccan Harira with Lamb that sees chickpeas and lentils cooked in a broth that includes tomatoes, spices and meat.

The Phobidden Fruit

Yes, we know that Phos are not technically soup. But since they are as comforting, you should try the Beef Pho at Phobidden Fruit. If you are stuck on technicalities, then, give the highly recommended Bun Bao a try. It’s a noodle-soup that combines the flavours of beef and chillies superbly.
