The Souper Freak is here
The Souper Freak is here. The new food truck, has been on the road for 3 1/2 weeks.
The van, done up in Orioles orange and black, is parked today near the corner of Calvert and Monument streets. The weekly schedule is posted on the (adorable) website.
The truck's operator is Irene Smith, who happens to be married to Scott Smith, the chef-owner of Big Bad Wolf Barbecue.
The weekly changing menu features four soups. This week the lineup is Moroccan spiced chickpea, cream of asparagus, miso with shrimp and tofu, and Italian Wedding soup.
The truck serves baba hanoush sandwiches, too: a grilled cheese, the "Albuquerque is a Turkey," and the Souper Power Wrap, an early favorite, according to Smith.
A rainy day like today is perfect for a soup truck, Smith said, who added that she's still very much looking forward to the summer, when she can bring out her gazpacho and other soups made from hot-weather produce.
A cup of soup is $4, a bowl of soup is $6, and sandwiches range from $4 to $6. Not sure if the truck is cash only, but I'll know soon.
