Savoury soups to soothe your soul in Edmonton

Whether you have a cold or are just feeling cold, soup is always the quickest fix. These Edmonton spots have a fantastic variety of brothy delights, ranging from Thai delicacies to homemade chicken noodle soup just like your mom made you during your childhood.

The Creperie

1
111-10220 103 St NW, Edmonton, AB T5J 0Y8

Although they are mostly known for their crepes, their French onion soup is also the stuff of legend. It’s not too salty, but is still full of flavour. It’s hearty enough to eat as a satisfying lunch, with plenty of bread and a blend of mozzarella, Swiss and Gruyere cheeses — but not so much that the broth is overpowered. They also have a solid seafood chowder made with mussels, shrimp, salmon and scallops, as well as a lovely wild mushroom soup.

Manor Casual Bistro

2
10109 125 Street NW, Edmonton, AB T5N 1S7

There’s usually no soup on the set menu, just a daily soup creation from the kitchen that changes constantly. But, whether it’s chicken noodle, tomato or cream of mushroom, it’s made fresh in-house and it tastes so good you’ll wonder if your mamma is back in the kitchen making it herself.

Doans Vietnamese Restaurant

3
10130 107 St NW, Edmonton, AB T5J 1J4

There are some great soups on Doan’s menu, including the hu tieu sate with beef. It’s a soup that doubles as a meal, with tomato, cucumber, slivers of soft beef and mounds of rice noodles topped off with cilantro. It’s spicy and savoury, in a portion big enough to fill your belly twice over. But, it’s the bun ca rig a soup that wins my heart. It’s got huge chunks of soft potato, chicken, onions and rice noodles. It’s a little carb heavy but it tastes so darn good.

Boualouang Laos & Thai

4
10569 97 St NW, Edmonton, AB T5H 2L4

Their mouth-watering soups are so reasonably priced and come in such huge portions. There’s a variety of options, including the popular won ton soup and tom yum soup but my personal favourite is the tom-ga-tee. The milky, coconut-based broth is rich and soothing, and the tender chicken and plump, chewy mushrooms add texture. Most of the soups have the option of choosing chicken, shrimp or seafood and mushrooms, so you can customize to your liking.

Urban Diner

5
12427 102 Ave NW, Edmonton, AB T5N 0M2

Soup comes in cup or double cup portions here. Whether you go for the classic split pea with smoked bacon and ham or the homemade chicken soup, you’ll be satisfied. Plus, the prices are really reasonable and the soup will warm your soul and stomach in a hurry.

The Sequel Cafe

6
10011 102 Ave NW, Edmonton, AB T5J 0E5

This cute café does a ton of different soups, and their menu varies daily as they make the soup from scratch. Past favourites include the tomato spinach, black bean, corn chowder, cream of cauliflower, red lentil, carrot ginger and borscht. In addition to serving up soup with their sandwiches, they also sell it by the litre so you can enjoy it at home. You can even pretend you made it yourself – we won’t tell anyone.

Lan's Asian Grill Ltd

7
11828 103 St NW, Edmonton, AB T5G 2J2

This cozy Asian grill gets killer word of mouth, and for good reason – the food is truly authentic and fresh. They serve a variety of soups, including beef pho and tom yum soup. While the portions are a bit smaller than places that specialize in pho, the taste and the quality of the ingredients make up for it.

In April 2016, Conde Nast Traveler's Readers' Choice Awards for the Best Pizza in the World: The Top 14 Cities for Pizza placed Edmonton at number eight on the list. With a diverse number of fantastic pizzas to choose from, including hand-tossed, wood-fired pies with white or red sauce and fun toppings ranging from pineapple to pine nuts, you're sure to find one you adore. Buon appetito!
