With the rain belting away on the windows, and monsoon blues creeping up on us, there’s nothing more comforting than a warm bowl of soup. And if you’re looking for just that, here’s a guide to our favourite comforting soups in the monsoon.

Prawn Chowder @ The Bagel Shop

Seafood-lovers, there’s nothing better than the Prawn Chowder at the cute Bagel Shop. This extremely filling soup, which also doubles as a meal {in our opinion}, has prawns, potatoes, sweet corn, leak and parsely in the form of delicious creamy soup. The soups here also comes along with bread, so you don’t really need anything else.

Price: INR 329

Corn and Roasted Garlic @ Cafe Zoe

Cafe Zoe is the perfect place to hang out at when the rain is hitting hard outside and you’re in the mood for some music. Our go-to cafe for brunches, Cafe Zoe also does really good soups. They start serving them 11 am onwards, and we highly recommend their Corn and Roasted Garlic soup. It is one of the most comforting soups out there, and we love the garlic aftertaste it leaves behind. It comes with a side of bread.

#LBBTip: Meat eaters, do try their French Onion soup {INR 250}.

Price: INR 180

Lemon Chilly Coriander @ Green Chilli

The Lemon Chilly Coriander {chicken} is not only comforting, but is totally value for money. This soup is semi-spicy, tangy, and has not been watered down. It maintains its thickness {just about}, and is really filling.What we especially love is that Green Chilli folks are really generous with chicken pieces.

Price: INR 150

#LBBTip: They also serve it with prawns.

Cream Of Tomato @ Gaylords

And for the vegetarians folk, we had to bring this up separately. The cream of tomato soup is a delightfully filling soup, warm and comforting.

Price: INR 210

French Onion @ Gallops

Gallops in Mahalaxmi is a another oldie but a goodie. This charming restaurant has been around for decades, and its envious location {it’s next to the race course} adds to its charm. When you’re here, you ought to try the French Onion soup. It lives up to its name, and is the one to go for when you’re in the mood for some Sunday chilling. This rich, clear soup with caramelised onions is delightful and comforting. Though it may not be as filling, it is definitely a good starter here.

Price: INR 295
