5 Restaurants Across Canada Offering Comforting Soups For Takeout

A historically essential dish, soups were formally served in restaurants dating back to 18th century France, beginning with broth, consomme and bouillion. By the 19th century, they not only came to you by bowl, soups were also available in canned and dehydrated formats for easy portability in travel.

Hot, cold, noodled, veggie-filled, meaty, hearty, savoury, simple; you can order it almost any way you like!
