SOUPtember in Indy

A roundup of some of our fave soups in the city.

We made it to soup season, Mavens! Doesn’t it feel good? Warm and cozy and slurpy and soothing? We enjoyed smoothies and popsicles and salads and watermelon ’til we bled fruit juice. We overindulged, m’kay? Because such is summer. But now. Now we get to shift gears and come home to the coziest food on the planet. We get to layer our outfits and sip something spice-y (even pumpkin-y) in the morning. But then we GET TO SLURP SOUP.

It’s SOUPtember, friends. So we wanted to give you a list of some of our faves around town. Did we include a pho here and a stew there? Did we throw in a dash of chowder? We did. We aim for inclusivity in all things, and brothy bowls are no exception. Grab your spoons, and dig in.
