SeeDundee has launched its #SoupSearch — our bid to find the best places in Dundee to find a cup or bowl of the good stuff.
Up today is News & Food on Reform Street.
You can expect service with a smile if you’re wandering into News & Food… on Reform Street for lunch – as well as a hearty cup of traditional soup.
There are no frills about the roll shop’s offerings, with lentil as well as carrot and coriander the two options and it’s very much a case of the classics made well.
The lentil is as traditional as you can get with a nice mix of broth and vegetables.
The soup remained piping hot from shop to office so that’s definitely a tick in the book.
Taste-wise, it was delicious – exactly how a good lentil soup should be. Packed full of vegetables and flavour, it was one of the heartiest soups I’ve had.
News & Food’s offering came in a generously sized takeaway cup, the sort you’d get when you order a medium coffee from Costa.
A large buttered roll perfectly complimented the soup.
For £2.20, including the roll, this was a reasonable and enjoyable lunch. It makes you wonder why you’d take a packed lunch when you can get something so delicious, so cheap.
Friendly and welcoming, the service was brilliant.
A simple lunch – but a great one. And that’s all you can really ask for!
It’s got to be a 5/5.
