Good Morning Good Lunchers!
As a port city historically soaked in thick fog, mist, and downpours, soup has been an integral part of San Francisco’s diet for centuries. From our famous clam chowder and wanton soups, to the cioppino, a classic fish stew that was invented right here in the late 1800s by Italian immigrants after settling in North Beach, soup has always been a lifeblood here. Aged as the history of cooking itself, it remains one of the purest translations of any region’s unique cultural identity. Here, it’s provided warmth and comfort in an often times schizophrenic climate. And, it’s nourished everyone from forty-niner era settlers and miners and post-earthquake refugees, to five-star dining elites. Virtually every menu offers a soup of some kind, and San Francisco is known for its wide spectrum of ethnic varietals.
With that said, certainly there are days your team craves something on the lighter side
for lunch, warm, homestyle, and mellow on the system. If you haven’t managed to run into the San Francisco Soup Company yet, then allow us to properly guide you. As a family owned business, they’ve been bowling up soups for people all across the bay now for the past fifteen years. And they do it well.
Part of their success is due to their assortment of really flavorful, consistent signature soups, like their thick and creamy corn chowder, the smoky split pea, and (ironically) a New England clam chowder. All of which guarantee the kind of satisfaction you expect from a soup on a daily basis. In addition, they keep an ongoing list of changing specialty soups, where they get a bit more creative. Last we had, the Caribbean sweet potato was quite tasty!
Beyond the soup itself, their menu is responsibly labeled according to a matrix of gluten free, vegetarian, spicy, low fat, and low carb. The S.F. Soup Company was also one of the first establishments in the nation to use nearly 100% biodegradable cutlery
and packaging, and they’ve been composting since 2002, years before the city passed a mandatory recycling and composting ordinance. Of course, they utilize all locally sourced organic foods from regional partners. There’s good reason why they’ve become a popular go-to spot. There’s something about a soup that satiates like no other food. We’re happy they’re carrying forth the old tradition of stewing goodness in great pots.
