After debating long and hard about where to go for lunch one weekend, Mike and I decided on RaviSoups, a place I had always wanted to try. RaviSoups is located within the vicinity of Burrito Boyz in the clubbing district and is right next to Khao Sand Road, both of which were huge temptations!

Corn chowder and curried lamb wrap

Upon entering, it seemed like it was simply a take-out joint, but we noticed there was some seating behind the cashier counter. There’s an area at the back of the restaurant with a large communal wooden table, as well as a small patio behind the restaurant. Although it wasn’t too busy when we arrived for a late lunch on a Saturday, I imagine it’s a pretty popular lunch spot during the week.

The menu is written on the blackboard and all the options sounded mouth-watering. If you only get their soups, they range from $7.99 to $8.99, which is a bit pricey. They also offer a soup combo which comes with a wrap and a bowl of soup for $10.99. However, I believe the portion of the soup that comes with the combo is smaller than a regular order of soup.

Curried lamb wrap

Mike and I both opted for the combo. I ordered the Curried Lamb Wrap – with roasted yams, baby spinach, mango pineapple salsa, lime chili and mint cilantro. We were surprised to see them make the wraps fresh to order! After assembling them, they toasted them prior to serving them to us. It was a decent sized wrap, filled with a generous portion of lamb. I liked that they wrapped the filling inside the baby spinach so the tortilla didn’t get all soggy. The flavour of the wrap was amazing. The curry was really flavourful and the meat was tender. All the ingredients just went really well together; I highly recommend this!

I also ordered the Corn Chowder – with blue crab, thai basil and crispy shallots. The wrap and the soup came served on our own personal lazy susan’s, which was something definitely different! The crab in the soup was nice, and the crispy shallots were a great garnish to the dish. The soup itself was great, but I actually found my wrap to be better than the soup.

Porcini mushroom wild Rice bisque and roasted free range chicken wrap

Mike ordered the Roasted Free Range Chicken Wrap – with roasted yams, baby spinach, caramelized onions, tomato chutney, chipotle mayo. This wrap was another winner! I didn’t have high expectations for the wraps, given that it’s a soup joint, but it was definitely a pleasant surprise. The chicken was moist and the tomato chutney, mayo and caramelized onions all complimented each other well.

For his soup, he went with the Porcini Mushroom Wild Rice Bisque – with crispy shallots and truffle oil. This soup was amazing! It had a strong mushroom flavour and was ridiculously delicious! It wasn’t a creamy mushroom soup which is a nice change. Another highly recommended item, if you’re a fan of mushrooms.

Although the place itself is one of those hole-in-a-wall type restaurants, the food itself makes up for the lack of décor/atmosphere. Everything we had was fantastic, I’ll definitely be back to try their other soups and wraps.
