Zoup is Good Food: Triple Bread Boule is Good for Indecisive Soup Slurpers

Posted by cmh gourmand on December 7, 2018

If you are familiar with Heywood Banks and his Song, (I Like) Toast, you can replace that word with soup to understand how I feel about soup. I am a big soup fan. Especially this time of year. My favorite soup destination was Whole World Bakery in Clintonville (which closed a few years ago). While some of the menu could be hit or miss, I never had a soup there that was not exceptional. And each of the soups there was vegetarian or vegan.

When Zoup opened a few years ago, I was happy to see their addition to the soup scene since there are not many grab and go or at least fast casual options for soup that offer more than one or two choices. At Zoup, there are a dozen soups offered daily. You are free to sample as many as you want before making a choice. Their other fare (salads and sandwiches) leans toward the healthy side as well. The price for a good lunch is not offensive either.

When I was contacted by Zoup with an offer to try a Triple Bread Boule, it was very easy for me to say Yes or maybe Yez if I go with their phonetics. The Triple Bread Boule is a special item for the holidays and will be around through December 30th. The Boule is a gigantic loaf of bread that had three holes / or soup retention areas hallowed out in it for three soup selections of my choice. I like having a flight of soup. With twelve to choose from it is hard to pick just one soup to commit to and since they change their soup rotations often it can take a lot of visits to figure out what your favorite soup might be. I picked three very different soups for my flight. I was happy to see the flavors were protected from blending by thick, dense, toasted, chewy bread.

The bread held up well to the soups. The loaf itself was a meal in itself so I had some left to enjoy later. I just had to chew out the soup soaked portions to make transporting easier.
