There is soup. And, then there is SOUP. Real soup. Soup that has a soul. Soup that really grabs your taste buds and takes them for a ride. Soup that when you finish would have you licking the cup it came in if your manners didn’t take hold first. That’s what we’re talking about here.
I love a good bowl of soup a little more than the next guy. Sure, there are a few good ones around town. I was lucky. I stumbled on a great one.
The Sun Garden Café on Siesta Key serves a soup everyday that stands out like a special. Their Curried Chicken Soup is thick, delicious and inspired. It’s a soup that other soups wish they could be. Satisfying, bold and just plain good.
I know what you’re thinking. Yes, those are pepitas. And, yes, they add some great texture to this soups oddly satisfying creaminess. It has a nice spicy kick to it. This is one dish that has a unique personality.
Granted, this velvety delight might not be everyone’s cup of tea (so to speak). If you’re a lover of soup I think you will agree, this was one “souper” Sarasota Food Find.
