Hot Soups for the Cold Days
Posted by cmh gourmand on February 11, 2007
It is so #@*^%*ing COLD! I am sick of this hemisphere. The Gourmand has been roaming around Columbus eating… I mean researching. Here are some soup suggestions that will keep you warm until the thaw.
GREEN CHILE STEW
Chile Verde Cafe
4852 Sawmill Rd
Carriage Place Shopping Center / Sawmill and Bethel
The Green Chili Stew is one of the best items I have had in the last month. It is a mix of sirloin, round cut carrots, potatoes, green chiles, and jalapenos topped with cheese. The stew has a real kick, I loved it.
Cafe del Mondo
1885 W. 5 th Ave.
Marble Cliff (about 3/4 mile west of Grandview Ave)
My Italian heritaged friends complain about the lack of real wedding soup in Columbus. Cafe del Mondo is very serious about supplying authentic Italian ingredients and this focus shines through in their wedding soup. This is the type of soup you would expect someone’s grandma from Youngstown to throw together. It has homemade mini meatballs swimming in a perfect chicken broth. The cafe was picked as one of the best restaurants in the recent issue of Columbus Monthly.
SOUPS OF THE DAY
Whole World Natural Restaurant
3269 N. High St
Service and specials can be hit or miss here. The dreadlocked, ultra alternative, tortured artist staff can have a very hippy approach to everything here but they always offer 4-6 soups that vary from good to excellent. Soups change daily.
And if you are or have a vegan or vegetarian in your life, you need to know about the Happy Cow website – here is the review of Whole World.
