For all the praises of Berkeley’s Gourmet Ghetto, there are still many who regularly bypass Soop, a small take-out eatery right at the entrance of Epicurious Garden off of Shattuck Avenue.
Soop deals in soup for every taste and time of the year, and the menu changes daily and weekly. But also it deals in comfort and perhaps even memories. Whether it’s your family’s minestrone, an East Coaster’s favorite clam chowder, or a grandmother’s spicy Thai tom kha gai, you’ll find something familiar here.
