Infinite Soups opens in Downtown Tacoma

Infinite Soups is hitting the comfort spot, especially amid the snow, hail, and err, sn-ail as my spouse says! The space is small, right next door to City Lights Billiards on the corner of 6th Ave and Tacoma Ave. There is no seating so it’s a grab and go kinda thing. They have bread and crackers too. Other than that it's straight soup baby. Sounds like a good way to cut overhead and invest in ingredients!

Their official open was yesterday. On my way home from work yesterday I swung by to grab a quart . . . or two! Only 7 bucks for a quart, and they come in cup and bowl sizes too. I tried several, the African peanut was unusual but I liked it, very hearty. Then I snagged a sip of the coconut curry and was hooked! Smooth green curry and coconut milk with just a hint of salt and a few veggies floating around, not sweet but the perfect amount of spice for me.

I ended up walking out with a quart of the coconut curry and the Italian sausage with tortellini which was also surprisingly hearty with a strong veggie broth I think. I have to admit I would feel guilty for gulping down more samples unless I was going to buy more, but I was sorely tempted. My spouse slammed down the Italian sausage but said the curry was too spicy for him.

This is their opening menu:
