Several months ago I quit my job to help start City Life Church. I sent Tanya's a message trying to lure them into giving me free food for a review on the website. I think it weird-ed them out. I just didn't have money at the time and I was hungry!
Since things have gotten better financially I've called them about the gluten free options. Usually I will hear something like chic-pea curry soup or Mango gaspatcho. They sounded gross so we never stopped by. However, I had a meeting at the Doughnut Whole today and we all crossed the street for soup. It sounded good on a chilly winter day.
The place was packed. We weren't allowed to order anything since all the tables were full! They kept erasing soups from the chalk board as they were running out of them. While waiting, they let me try out the two gluten free soups on the menu. WOW! Let me just say I hate tomato soups. However the tomato soup they are serving at Tanya's soup kitchen is an object of my affection. It is sweet and creamy. I also tasted the roasted butternut squash and had to have it as well. It has an almost smokey flavor with a wonderful curry aftertaste. So what was I suppose to do? Yep, I ordered two bowls of soup. They were $3 each for a little bowl. I was unable to finish them but I kept tasting little spoonfuls so as to enjoy it one more time.
Okay so the soups at Tanya's are fancy. Also they didn't give me free soup. I guess they aren't running a soup kitchen. Ha. From now on, no matter how weird the soups are I will get them and I will enjoy them. Kudos to Tanya's. I now have another fun place to share with my out of town friends. First I probably should take my wife.
