I like restaurants which do something different and do it well. The soup place is one of those restaurants. They have a distinct feature from every other restaurant. They have various restaurants all across Melbourne but just by one look, you will know that it is The Soup Place. They have big containers of many varieties of soup in front. But they offer much more than just soup.
This place is located in the center place in an alleyway on flinder’s Lane. It is a small place so the seating area is limited. They have their soup containers displayed in front, then they have their salad section and at the back is the juice section. You can get all kinds of healthy meals from here.
I had lunch from here on 2 different occasions and I tried their Pumpkin soup, Chicken Schnitzel Salad, and Tacos. The salad and the soup are already cooked and will take no time to be served but Tacos may take a bit of time to be served, so if you in a hurry you can choose something else.
I really liked the preparation of the Tacos. I got 3 Tacos, Beef, Lamb and beans. The meat in both the tacos was very generous. It smelled fresh and the flavor was really nice as well. Tacos had a really nice texture and were a delight to eat. Soft meat and crunchy cabbage was a good combination. I really enjoyed it.
The Chicken Schnitzel Salad was not what I expected. I expected it to be just green leaves with the crispy chicken, not very flavorful but I was happily surprised when I had the first bite. There were a lot of flavors from the sauces added into the mix. One distinct flavor was of sweet chili sauce which elevated the level of chicken salad. The pumpkin soup was really nice and the flavor was nice as well. It was light and had a nice consistency.
The bread that is given with the soup felt a bit old. I think that can be improved. Other than that I think everything was up to the mark. I will definitely recommend this place for a quick and healthy lunch.
