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

Navya posted on 22 July

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.

Caperberry Restaurant

Warm up with the unusual flavours combination of potato and wasabi, speckled with hijiki seaweed and leeks. There’s also a clam soup, with the added flavours of white wine, saffron, and dill, that’s a must try.

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.

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.

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.

The Fatty Bao

Comfort food doesn’t get better than the Chasu Ramen at The Fatty Bao. A big bowl filled with braised pork belly, bacon, bean sprouts, marinated soft boiled eggs, scallions and pork stock lands up at your table and floors you.

Their chicken and mutton thalis feature fiery Tambda Rassa, a meaty broth that’s made with a whole list of spices. There’s also the Pandhra Rassa, another Kolhapuri special, that’s equally spice-filled but includes the sweetness of grated coconut.

This popular restaurant has plenty of soups like the Javanese Soto Ayam Soup, a curried chicken soup made with soto paste and glass noodles, that will have clamouring for more. You can also go for a classic Khow Suey, featuring egg noodles cooked in coconut milk.
