There are few things that beat the winter chill better than a bowl of hot soup. We’re telling you where to get your spoons into some soup-erb ones in Delhi. The best part? Most of these places will deliver to you. Gurgaon peeps, click here.

Qutub Institutional Complex

This is our go-to place for late night momo, Maggi and a steaming bowl of Hot and Sour Soup. The foggier the weather, the better it tastes- comfort food at its best.

Mamagoto’s a classic destination for Asian food with a twist. Their soups are no exception. We recommend the Chinese Sour and Pepper Soup with 22 Ingredients. It’s Mamagoto’s take on the Hot and Sour – it’s lighter but heavy on flavour.

#LBBTip: Space out your soup and your meal, because it can get very filling.


Named after one of our favourite pig-like characters, Jughead’s does typical Chindian soups and delivers at the speed of light {well, almost}. Our favourites include the Manchow and Talumein. One portion serves at least three, so order wisely.

Not the most impressive kid on the block, Hot Box whips up a beautiful Spinach Soup – thick and creamy. We suggest ordering in and sipping on this in the comfort of your home {their seating arrangement isn’t the best}.

Devang House

With a completely organic menu, Devang House does a different soup every day, made with mostly homegrown ingredients. We’re suckers for the Pumpkin Rasam Soup, a spicy yet wholesome affair.

If you want to eat your soup and like it meaty, look no further than the Hungarian Paloc Soup at Taj Mahal Hotel’s Machan. Full of potatoes, beans and lamb broth, it’s bound to send you to your happy place.

Desi Vibes

If you’re looking for something more Indian, Desi Vibes cooks up some great shorbas. Choose from Mutton or Murgh Shorba, Dal ka Shorba or Tamatar ka Shorba and follow it up with their signature Paneer Makhani.

If you’re a fan of the traditional Japanese Miso Soup, Guppy may be one of the best places for you. A mix of fermented soybean paste, tofu, wakame, spring onions and seasonal vegetables, it’s the perfect start to a sushi meal.


Known for their hand-tossed wood-fired pizzas, Amici is a classic Italian cafe also good for zuppa. Their variety in this department is limited but if you’re having the Alpine Mushroom Soup, all’s good. 

The Golden Dragon

One of the oldest Chinese restaurant chains in the city, The Golden Dragon has managed to keep its soup game up. Don’t believe us? Order the Pure Meatball Soup, the Chicken Clear Soup or the Mixed Seafood Soup. Bound to give you that much needed dose of comfort.


If you find yourself swinging towards the lemongrass and coconut wagon, the Tom Kha soup from Culinaire should serve you well.

Happy Hakka has served us well this year. We love their online ordering process and we love their food. One thing our order always includes is the Double Corn Chicken soup.

This is pretty filling though, so you may want to supplement it with just an appetiser {refrain from the dim sums- get the Chicken Bites or the Soya Wings}.
