It is rare to have a real, seasoned chef prepare simple items at such reasonable prices, yet Soup Plus seems to offer exactly that.
I ventured into this small shop at recommendation of a well known chef / friend who heartily endorses the joint, and my god he was right! The owner is a well seasoned chef who recently opened (or took over Soup Plus) and transformed it into a humble spot that serves food foodies will recognize as truly special and rare.
In a city crawling with food spots, it is still a rare occasion to find such excellent quality of homemade dishes, prepared with care and attention to detail.
The meatloaf is meaty, and sings with all the vegetables - a tower of delight on a homemade sub or nestled between two crisp slices. The Big Louie is lipsmacking good, moist and delicate, allowing the slices of beef to engage the pallet.
The salads are made with simple yet well-balanced balsamic vinegar dressing, and the toasted sandwiches are a respite for a cheese lover.
Any dish you encounter on the menu is prepared by the hospitable owner, and no matter what you order, you will not be disappointed.
I trek from Vancouver whenever I can just to sit in this humble cafe and indulge my appetite. I only wish they could be a little closer. A little eatery that truly packs a punch!
