Monsoon is here! 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.
Where To Get Hot, Bubbling Bowls Of Soup In This Monsoon
The rich shorbas at this restaurant sure have a way of perking you up. Try the Murgh Kalimirch Ka Shorba, which is chicken broth simmered with black pepper or the Tomato and Basil Ka Shorba, a Tomato infused with Basil Sorba – and you’ll warm up in an instant. They are now open for dine-in with all the safety measures in place. If you don't feel like stepping out, they also have home delivery and takeaway option that you can enjoy.
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 delicious tenderness. Their Frazer Town is now open for takeaway. All you gotta do is call them and place your order.
Who doesn't love a warm cup of Asian soup on a rainy day or even otherwise? We absolutely do! This tea room also serves a great line-up of soups. It includes the Celery, Carrot and Mushroom soup alongside the Hot and Sour Shredded Chicken Soup – both crowd favourites. They are now open for dine-in and delivery. So, order away and drink away those monsoon blues.
Say goodbye to the blues with the Chinese Sour and Pepper soup here. It comes in vegetarian and chicken versions and is made with 22 ingredients that will give your palate something to think about. Another must-try is the Oriental Clear Beef Soup with pak choi, snow peas, and garlic stirred in. Order-in their yummy and soulful soups to set the monsoon mood.
Yes, we know that Pho is 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. They are open for home-delivery via swiggy and zomato and also have the option of takeaway. Plus, if you live close by (in and around Indiranagar), they'll deliver your order depending on their availability.
Smoke House Deli
With a whole page dedicated to soups on their menu and the option to make into a combo, all you soup lovers are pretty much spoiled for choice at Smoke House Deli. They have the paleo coconut and seafood broth soup as well as smoked chicken with thyme and baby fennel soup if you're feeling under the weather. The slow roast plum tomato and lemongrass, as well as the smoked chicken with thyme that comes highly recommended. You can order-in via food delivery services like Zomato.
An all vegetarian affair (with Jain options on request), this is perfect to take even your picky family members. Try out their broccoli and almond soup that's hearty and flavoursome, or their tomato and hemp powder soup for comfort food options. They even have the famous laksa and pho, which is perfect for the rains on their menu. They are now open for dine-in with all the safety measures taken and also open for delivery.
