âSoupâ is a dish made by putting various ingredients in a broth made from meat, fish, and vegetables and simmering it for a long time. It comes out in one bowl without any special preparation, and has a simple feel, but the process of making the broth and stirring constantly contains complete sincerity. Soup was enjoyed as an appetizer that boosts the taste buds, but recently, places that serve it as a main dish have sprung up. If you add bread or biscuits to a bowl of soup that fully incorporates the flavors of the ingredients, it's perfect as a hearty meal. Here are 5 of the best soup restaurants that keep you warm when the wind blows.
