Back for its second year, the Vancouver Soup Festival offers a tasty way to kick the winter chill to the curb and get a taste of what's cooking in the city.
Presented by Vancouver Foodster, the Soup Festival features Metro Vancouver restaurants dishing up flavourful soups between Jan. 9 and Feb. 2, and diners can cast their votes for their favourites.
The fest is timed to go with the season, as well as to give restaurants an additional chance at bringing in customers during a typically slower time of year. Plus: January is "National Soup Month."
This year's fest features a variety of styles and cusines, including noodle-filled bowls from the new Noodle Arts on Robson Street, and vibrant Mexican flavours at the just-opened Mi Casa Mexicana in Kitsilano.
