In January this year The Evening Standard published their guide to the best places for soup in London. Their soup gems included:
Veteren vegetarian restauarant serves wholesome veggie soups, with a daily changing menu.
Mildreds, 45 Lexington Street, W1F 9AN, mildreds.co.uk
Supposedly the oldest French eaterie in London, dating back to the ‘40’s. The onion soup is supposedly fab – served gratinée, with a heap of hot, bubbling cheese piled on toast on top.
Mon Plaisir, 19-21 Monmouth Street, WC2, monplaisir.co.uk
Mishkin’s only does one soup, a traditional Jewish chicken matzo ball, with light fluffy dumplings.
Mishkin’s, 25 Catherine Street, WC2B 5JS, mishkins.co.uk
I’ve not tried any of these, though I plan to, and there’s definitely a few establishments I’d add to the list!
