Caution Hot! Soups to Warm You Up this Winter

By: Scott Davis | January 8, 2020

The mental image of dipping a spoon into a steaming hot bowl of soup, lifting it up and then blowing on it before taking a sip is enough to warm us up on a cold afternoon. Soups are a great way to stay warm and soothe some of those winter blues or illnesses, but maybe you’re looking for something a little more adventurous than just the average tomato or chicken noodle. So if you’re willing to think outside the box, check out these unique soups in Metro Detroit.

Green Room Salad Bar

While the name Green Room Salad Bar might sound like a great summer lunch spot (which it also is), the Detroit restaurant also offers up some terrific daily soup options including the lobster bisque, steak and ale chowder, Baja chicken, and vegetarian spinach and feta. The lunch spot’s Facebook page is always updated with their daily soups and other great deals, so be sure to give them a follow!

Polish Village

A Detroit staple, Polish Village is a must visit for not only fans of Polish food, but foodies in general. Their soups rotate from dill pickle, beet, kielbasa, mushroom, and cabbage to name a few. For a little more adventurous eaters, we’d suggest the czarnina – duck blood soup – or the flackzi – tripe stew.

The Fly Trap

The Fly Trap is easily one of the best places for a fun brunch with some friends, but it also offers some interesting lunch eats as well. One of those is the lemongrass faux bowl, which is made with lemongrass and Thai chili infused broth and features flat noodles, sesame, veggies, and choice of chicken, tofu, or shrimp. Tofu obviously allows you to make the soup vegetarian, but almost all dishes can be made vegan with modifications.

Aurora’s Family Restaurant

We all have those local family style restaurants that have a special place in our hearts, and for many in the Clinton Township area, one of those restaurants is Aurora’s Family Restaurant. Their soups range daily from Albanian mushroom, to dill pickle, to crab corn chowder, to even cheeseburger! Their Facebook page updates with daily soups and specials, so be sure to check before you head out!

Lunchtime Global

Located in the First National Building in downtown Detroit, Lunchtime Global is the perfect lunch spot for anyone who works in Detroit. Their soups of the day range from spicy red curry chicken, to vegan adobo lentil and black bean, and a gluten free Shepherd’s Pie soup.You can pair it with one of their daily sandwich specials for a perfectly filling lunch.
