Last night I tried out a new Richmond District food business called Soup Galaxy (website). The concept is simple: every week, Soup Galaxy offers a homemade, fresh soup that you can have delivered to your doorstep.
This week’s soup was Spicy Kale Chowder with Andouille Sausage. When I got home last night, I found a nifty cooler pack sitting on my doorstep. Inside were two, 1-quart jars of the fresh soup (labeled with each soup’s full ingredients), surrounded by ice packs. I cut up some bread, threw together a quick salad and voila, dinner was served in about 20 minutes.
The soup was delicious. Rich flavors, lots of fresh and organic vegetables, plus it was homemade. I would have liked a little more andouille sausage in it but that’s the carnivore in me coming out.
Each jar/quart of soup is $10 and that’s enough soup for two people. You can purchase a reusable cooler bag with your order for $3.50 more, or leave your own cooler out for the delivery.
It’s free to sign up and every week, you’ll get an email announcing the next soup. Then if you want to try it, place your order by Thursday night. Order 1 jar or many if you plan on building a dinner party around it.
Soup Galaxy, whose tag line is “feel-good cosmic soup!”, just started their business in February. They currently deliver to portions of the Richmond District, Seacliff, Sunset, and St. Francis Woods neighborhoods (check delivery areas). Orders are dropped off every Monday between 8am and 4pm (you don’t have to be home for delivery; they can leave it on your doorstep).
Next week’s soup is Caldo de Pollo, a Mexican soup prepared in a house made stock with pulled chicken, coarsely chopped vegetables with hints of lime, cayenne, and jalapeno. I’ve already placed my order.
