The Soup Spoon is one of those places that's frequented by women and health junkies, mostly looking for a healthier lunch option. Ms PR and I were in the area for lunch and wanted something light, yet hearty and robust at the same time.
The Simon and Garfunkel Chicken and Mushroom Ragout ($6.80) is a tomato and cream chicken stew that pays tribute to the 60's pop band and their Scarborough Fair hit, where "Parsley, Sage, Rosemary and Thyme" were the 4 herbs featured in the said song. Thick juicy chunks of chicken thigh are combined with 6 varieties of mushroom including woodsy portobello, smooth oyster and abalone, Japanese enoki and shitake, and the universal button. The 4 herbs are of course featured heavily in the stew as well.
