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 every day 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.
This delightful dish is topped with pepitas. And, 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.
