Whether it is Mexican Tortilla Soup, New England Seafood Chowder or Japanese Soba Noodle Soup - delicious soups from around the world are gaining more popularity in food outlets and eateries around the UK.
Light and healthy international soups featuring on menus across the country now boast high consumer demand that previously only enticed an Ethnic palate. They are high in nutritious value and can be tailored with different ingredients to suit different taste palates and diet plans. For vendors they provide great profit margins and a unique opportunity to use other surplus ingredients.
Since the recent surge of successful Chinatown-style noodle shops and street food vendors in many of the big cities around the world, noodle soup is making a huge comeback onto menus. Its recent popularity and ease of preparation has meant many food outlets have launched their own interpretations of this great cuisine, experimenting with different types of noodles and toppings.
Because Asian noodle soups are cheap and filling, they have become extremely popular among college and University students. Many food outlets are taking advantage of this by serving low-calorie nutritional soups packed with lots of vegetables, grains and lean protein.
The versatility of soup means you can accommodate for most customers nutritional requirements by offering vegetarian, dairy-free, gluten-free and low-fat options. Noodle soups complement lunch menus nicely and can be used for combo deals with other items such as sandwiches and salads.
Some great ways to advertise soup dishes include rotating the soup specials and offering DIY Asian noodle soups where you start with well flavoured stock and noodles, and customers are able to ‘build’ their own noodle soup with a range of delicious add-ons.
