Warm Up with London’s Best Soup


Soup is the ultimate comfort food, and it’s a great way to warm up during a chilly London January. Try a bowl at the Piping Kettle Soup Co., located at Covent Garden Market Building, 130 King St. The soups change daily, and there’s an option for every dietary need from meat lovers to vegan, gluten-free to dairy-free. Sandwiches, salads and combos are also available. Past soups have included Ale House Shepherd’s Pie Soup, Cajun Turkey Gumbo, and Cauliflower and Swiss.

Zoup! is a favorite counter-service chain located in London at 1025 Wellington Road, Building A, Unit 5B. Also with sandwiches and salads, daily soups are always changing. Popular picks have included Chicken Potpie, Curry Thai Chicken, Crab Bisque, and Singapore Squash. Catering is available if you’re planning a London event.

Soup’s Up!

Wich is Wich, located at 125 King St., is technically a sandwich joint but nothing pairs better with a delicious ‘wich than a cup of hot soup. Their homemade soups change daily, but a staple that’s always on the menu is Oven-roasted Tomato. You can add a scratch-made bun for dipping, and don’t forget to check out the impressive dessert menu (there’s a new featured dessert daily).

Thuan Kieu is one of the top-ranked Vietnamese restaurants in town, located at 1275 Highbury Ave N #116. Famous for their pho, you can get their staple Beef Pho or consider one of their many “other soup” picks—including vegetarian options. Stewing Beef Flank with Tomato and Rice Soup, Seafood and Ham Soup with clear noodles, and Wonton Soup with egg noodles are just a few options.

No matter where you go, you’ll be truly “bowled” over.
