Souper duper soups at Souprb

There are lots of options for Chinese soups in Sheungwan like Soupreme 湯品小棧, Souper Authentic 球哥燉湯 and 靚湯王 at Dor dor eatery (with rude service) but NONE for Western soups unless you go all the way to TALLORE in Wanchai.

Finally Souprb has popped up serving soups with 5 choices which they change every week. The soup choices were impressive because there were 4/5 that I wanted to try: pumpkin, beetroot, Mexican chicken, portobello and chestnut, Prawn and crab gumbo (premium choice +$10)

As a soup fan, I got the tasting set which comes with two soups while my friend got the Stew set which comes with rice and a curry. They also had toasties which I really really wanted to eat as well.

We both added $30 for the made to order freshly pressed juices which were refreshing but a bit too sweet.

Tasting set:
Prawn and crab gumbo soup + Mexican chicken

Stew set:
curry, rice and chestnut and portobello mushroom soup

The curry was Japanese curry served with Japanese rice.

As for the soups, the chestnut portobello mushroom was really good, it was thick and there were so much mushrooms and chestnuts in it.
The gumbo was a little disappointing because the cajun and spiciness was not strong enough and there were bits of shell in the soup.
The Mexican chicken tasted like Chinese style borscht soup with chicken added to it.
Will definitely be back for the toasties but the tasting set was not very filling, but then I probably have a big appetite.
