Address: 387 Graham Ave.
Between the warmth of the room and the compelling simplicity of the menu, there is something especially comforting about Sana Souphouse. A peaceful respite from the downtown hustle, this Graham Ave spot welcomes with luscious soups simmering behind a shiny red counter.
Inside, community spirit comes to life with a colourful mural of Esplanade Riel. But the connection to the community doesn’t stop at the décor. Thin slices of meat, sourced from local Karpaty Meats & Deli, fill toasty sandwiches like the grilled ham and pineapple. This combination mixes fresh grilled pineapple with house made red chile pepper sauce, creating a sweet and fiery bite. Settle in with the comfort of chicken noodle soup, served over angel hair egg noodles. Flecked with dill, chunks of chicken in golden broth make this belly-filling bowl the best cure for any cold.
Indulgences include sumptuous lobster bisque and signature lasagna soup, with a heaping garnish of ricotta, parm and cheddar melting into the dish. The line-up of borscht, hearty wild mushroom and zuppa Toscana may have one opting for the flight of soup, three smaller portioned bowls ideal for indecisive diners.
Light but filling options include spinach and strawberry salad. A sprinkle of slivered almonds adds crunch, and a drizzle of tangy lemon vinaigrette brings out sweet flavour with acidic pop.
