When fall rolls around, we start thinking about all the cold weather food that we found hard to enjoy during the ridiculously hot summer months. We start craving SOUP.  (You know you do. Don’t even TRY to say you don’t.) There are few things more enjoyable than a delicious bowl of core warming soup when you’re freezing. Luckily there are a lot of great spots in Ashland to go for a bowl if you’re too lazy (or busy) to make some yourself. I’ll share with you the three soups in Ashland I get excited about when  the temperature drops.

VAOCOOPCHILI

They typically have a couple of soups to choose from daily, however my favorite is their Meat Chili. It’s packed with beans, meat, peppers, onions, and flavor. After filling my bowl with the chili, I like to hop over to the salad bar to  add a ton of cheddar cheese. At checkout,  I order a side of sour cream. Not adding sour cream to something that tastes best with it  is a crime, so don’t forget! Their chili isn’t spicy, so if you want to kick up the heat on yours, add some hot sauce, which  they provide. By the way, they have vegetarian chili as well!

 

Tot Restaurant

VAOTOTPHOFRI

Basically everything on Tot’s menu is fantastic, and you can’t beat a massive bowl of Pho when you have the chills. Theirs is so good, they even dedicated a day of the week to it: Pho Fridays! Pho (pronounced “fuh”) is a Vietnamese soup that consists of broth, meat (typically beef or chicken), noodles, herbs, and other goodies to add. Tot serves theirs with a side of jalapenos, lime wedges, basil, and bean sprouts. You can add your own salty sauce and hot sauce to taste. I thank  Tot for making Fridays awesome for one more reason.

 

Pangea

HOURS: 11 am – 8 pm

 

VAODEADGAL

Pangea always has great soups on the menu. My favorite of theirs happens to be the richest soup I’ve ever had: Dead Gal Cheddar. It’s basically a bowl of thick, cheesy soup with tons of onions. They finish it with  a bottle of Rogue Dead Guy Ale which compliments the sweetness from the onions creating a bowl of…well, sin. It’s sinfully good. I like to ask for extra bread on the side to dip with. Oh, and it looks like Pangea now takes online orders for pick up or to order in advance to avoid waiting when  dining in. (Does anyone know why they call the soup Dead Gal Cheddar when they use Dead Guy Ale?)

 

So, I shared my favorite soups in Ashland…now it’s time to share yours.
