Soups of San Francisco – The Grove Signature French Onion Soup

I have been very busy for the last 3 weeks with client work and had to put my soup journey on hold until today…

But now, I am very glad to be on vacation in San Francisco for 6 days visiting my very good friend Sharon.

San Francisco is such a great place for cool trendy cafes and restaurants.

Today we ventured to the Lower Pacific Heights area for lunch at a place called The Grove on Fillmore street.

I decided to have their Signature French Onion Soup. This soup has two thumbs up for taste but definitely not for the low salt and low calories. But what the heck, I’m on holidays!

The Grove put a fair bit of love into delivering oh so scrumptious caramelized onions and a very cheesy gruyere topping. I also liked how the bread topped the whole bowl. Very filling and so good.

Here’s a peak under the bread:

If you are ever in this area, it is a spot I recommend for French Onion Soup. Then hop on over to La Boulange for some pastries! Yum.

Bye for now. Time to walk my late lunch off for day 1 of San Francisco!
