Road Trip! San Francisco Soup Company

My mom and I took a day trip to San Francisco yesterday, and while we were there, we had lunch at the San Francisco Soup Company.  This restaurant offers a variety of soups, salads, and sandwiches.

There were three vegan soups available on the menu:  southwestern corn chowder, smoky split pea, and Indian lentil.  I decided to have a soup and sandwich combo with a cup of the southwestern corn chowder and half of a hummus wrap.  The soup was wonderful, the predominant flavors being corn, potatoes, some kind of spicy peppers, and the cilantro garnish.  The online menu says the hummus wrap includes roasted red bell peppers, kalamata olives, cucumbers, and Romaine lettuce, but mine seemed to consist of just a little hummus and a whole lot of lettuce.  If I had it to do over again, I'd probably order a whole bowl of the chowder and skip the half sandwich. 

Other vegan items on the San Francisco Soup Company menu include side salads of either mixed greens or seasonal fresh fruit, and custom wraps or salads that allow you to choose the ingredients you want from a long list of options.

The San Francisco Soup Company chain has several restaurants in the Bay Area and one in Boulder, Colorado.  The restaurant where my mom and I had lunch was at the San Francisco Shopping Centre on Market Street, which has a very impressive food court with several unique restaurants, many of which appeared to have vegan menu selections.  The San Francisco Soup Company's website address is
