The Man was in town this weekend, so I had to take him with me to try another soup. I took him to Sip Sak, a Turkish restaurant in midtown east, since it was right across the street from the bday bash we had to be at later on. I was really, really, really, really, really not looking forward to trying this Hot Yogurt Soup ($6). Hot and yogurt just didn’t seem to go together.
The Man was going to order a bowl for himself, but I told him that I probably wouldn’t like it and would just give him the rest of mine. Oh boy, was I wrong!
Before I tried it, my nose caught wind of the delicious mac and cheese scent, which made my eyes perk in excitement, which made me eager to dig in. Ladies first, so I got the first taste. Ummm, I need to go heat up some yogurt now and add a bit of mint and butter. Somehow the three ingredients gave it a hint of citrus flavor. Refreshing creaminess, could it be? I’m sure I ingested a whole vat of fat, but that’s what I’m guessing makes it tasty. Here’s what I recommend: If you get your wisdom teeth pulled out and have an annoying craving for mac and cheese, then have some of this. You won’t get the nice pasta chewiness, but I’m pretty sure it’ll hold you off until you can chew. Maybe this could also compare to a light, watered down cheese fondue. I mean, we did dip our bread into the bowl a few times. Gotta soak up every last drop!
Being the generous girlfriend I am, I gave the Man the last few bits, even though I really wanted the rest of it. It was the least I could do since I already lied to him about only taking a couple spoonfuls. I think we both wanted to order a second bowl that we could enjoy alone, especially when our entrees weren’t satisfying. Sometimes, things just aren’t meant for sharing, and we all need a little independence. :)
Needless to say, this was a shockingly lovely experience. It’s hard not to feel incredibly satisfied and happy when you have the comforts of “mac and cheese,” soup and your Man by your side.
