I was recommended Nusa Kitchen a while back and was informed about all the great soups that they do and since it’s the new year, a healthier lunch option was – literally – right up my street.
My reasoning for not going to Nusa Kitchen sooner, is the standard lunchtime queue. As soon as it hits 12.30pm, office workers and locals start forming an orderly queue to get their homemade soup and with a different menu every week it isn’t surprising.
When I visited, each soup sounded delicious and I would have gladly had a different soup for each day of the week. The most exciting and unique aspect about Nusa Kitchen, is that they offer bread, rice or fruit for no added cost if you wish to bulk out your meal.
I opted for the Catalan Chorizo and Chickpea soup and chose bread as my side. The soup had a spicy kick that was perfect for a cold winters day and was the best soup I’d had in a long time. The bread, unfortunately, was cold by the time I sat down to eat.
Nusa Kitchen is a little gem found not too far from Barbican, Old Street and Farringdon tube stations. If you’re ever in the area and need a quick pick-me-up I’d urge you to try the soup and with an ever-changing menu, no wonder customers keep coming back for more.
