The extraordinary pleasure of a simple soup.

 The extraordinary pleasure of a simple soup.

There’s something meditative about soup, a dish we consume with all of our senses. First, we see the steam rising seductively out of the bowl and we visually critique the contents. Next, we lift and inhale—soup is a food we instinctively smell. Finally, we take that first, tentative slurp, testing the heat, circulating the flavors over our taste buds. After a day dropping into bowls of powder, a bowl of soup warms you from head to toe.


Park City Mountain, The Farm, Oxtail Soup

French Onion soup on steroids. This is no mere broth, rather a rich, beefy bowl of decadence. The Farm (Canyons Village) does it again.

Powder Mountain, Powder Keg,

Tonkatsu Ramen

A beautifully presented bowl of pork broth with eggs, green onions, bam-

boo shoots and slabs of pork belly.

Snowbasin Resort, Needles Lodge, White Bean
Chicken Chili

Ride the Needles gondola to enjoy this spicy chili at 9,000 feet at the Needles Lodge. It boasts a Southwestern kick featuring green chilies and smoky adobo.

Deer Valley Resort, Silver Lake Lodge, Bald Mountain Pho

Having choices in broth—beef or ginger-mushroom—is a fun way to begin your pho journey, then add Wagyu beef and/or tofu and shiitake mushrooms. Top it with crispy rice noodles, bean sprouts, lime wedges, sliced chilies, Thai basil mint and housemade hoisin. Need we say more?


Porcupine Pub and Grill,

Creamy Chicken Noodle

A perennial favorite, this twist on chicken noodle is best enjoyed with homemade rolls and paired with their excellent wings. Two locations: Cottonwood Heights and University.


Silky Corn Bisque
with Jonah Crab

The name says it all. Rich, roasted corn flavor, topped with chunks of tender crab? No brainer. In downtown SLC, this is a good place to kick off a night on the town.


Seafood Chowder

At this chic, Swedish eatery, enjoy this savory yet delicate chowder with a glass of bubbly at the bar, or book a large table for a crowd. In Sugar House.
