It’s feeling like fall, and I don’t know about you, but all I want to do is cuddle up with my favorite comfort show (here’s looking at you “Gilmore Girls”) and a big bowl of soup. If your rainy day routine also includes hot broth, then here’s some of the best in Salt Lake.

La-Cai Noodle House

Try the pho at La-Cai Noodle House. The flavor is complex and filling and I love adding lots of lime, thai basil, and chili sauce.


Chow down on the clam chowder at Freshie’s Lobster Co. (sorry to all the lactose-intolerant hotties out there). There’s something so simple yet satisfying about it.


You’re at the store anyway, so pick up a container of tomato basil soup at Harmons Grocery. It’s oh so creamy and decadent. While you’re at it, grab a baguette for dipping and a fun drink, and call yourself a romantic!

Victor’s Restaurant

Nestled inside a tire shop (talk about convenience) in Glendale is Victor’s Restaurant. When you’re in the mood for a comforting bowl, order the pozole, which is a rich, brothy, soup made with hominy. Save room for tamales, too.

Eva’s Bakery

If you haven’t yet, try the French onion soup at Eva’s Bakery. Let me tell you, this thing is chock full of luscious caramelized onions. And the “pièce de résistance" is the toasty, cheesy bread on top (can you say satisfying cheese pull?).

What’s your favorite soup to sip on?
