The word on the street is that the Venezuelan government has made the world’s largest pot of soup. Personally, if we were the Venezuelan government, we’d first focus on solving the country’s food shortage program, but, nevertheless,we are duly impressed, especially since he weather lately has been getting chillier and it’s got us craving soup like a fiend. Below, three of the Hub’s best bets for our favorite warming food.
•The cremini mushroom soup at Cafe D is topped with a swirl of parmesan cream, airy croutons and a good drizzle of rosemary oil. It manages to be appealingly decadent and magically light at the same time.
•We would not be fit to kiss anyone afterwards, but we could easily subsist on the sopa de ajo from Dali for at least a week. The garlicky treat is hot, creamy, and especially perfect when being soaked up with some lovely crusty bread.
•Lobster bisque is, of course, de rigeur in our crustacean-obsessed city. Don’t get us wrong: we adore it, but midway through the summer, it starts to get a touch predictable. Spice things up with the hot and sour lobster soup at Grill 23 & Bar. Lobster wontons and wood ear mushrooms float delicately in the flavorful broth, creating a perfect start to almost any meal.
