Thai Esane: I don’t know about you, but these cold dreary days have me craving Thai food! Three great soup options on Thai Esane’s menu including Tom Yum (hot and sour soup with bell pepper, shrimp and mushroom), Tom Kai (coconut-based soup with chicken, mushroom and bell pepper) and Wonton (house-made chicken wontons in savory broth. Cup of soup is
$6-7 depending on variety and $13-15 for the bowls.
Chef’s Market: Chef’s Market (Nashville’s top-ranked caterer) offers chicken tortilla soup, clam chowder and a daily soup feature Monday through Saturday at their Goodlettsville restaurant. All soups are served with a choice of a homemade roll (butter roll, herb roll – my personal favorite, or cornbread) or toast points. Their house made soups are priced at $2.99 for a cup and $4.50 for a bowl.

Their White Bean & Kale soup was dreamed up by Chef Patrick Gossett and features house-made vegetarian stock, white beans, kale, mirepoix and is topped with fresh herbs and shaved parmesan. $11.
Located in the heart of The Gulch, Otaku Ramen offers delicious traditional American ramen. Our favorite is the spicy miso paired with the most AMAZING hot chicken buns.
