Despite what looks to be like a tiny cafe, Soup Soup is actually decently spacious and can accommodate quite a few guests. I love the ceiling height windows and wood floor that give it a loft-like feel. Being elevated onto the second floor also gives you that same illusion, and as you look out at the view while sipping your soup, you can't help but feel like you are in some hip little cafe in Japan - oh, right, you are! I'm also loving the feature wall that they have illuminated at night as well as the low, contemporary booths they have underneath it. I do love to eat at little "hole-in-the-wall" type places every now and again - some of them have the best food you can imagine! In general, however, half the experience of eating at a restaurant (for me) is the ambiance, and this place was perfectly done - simple and classy, yet interesting and unique. I'm also learning how the Japanese differ from Americans in the customer service department. They love to keep restaurants and stores looking clean and tidy, and they are just so much more courteous in general! I'm loving it! Back in California, one of my all-time favorite places to go to eat lunch was a little market called Mother's (or Mom's House for those of you who live in CA). Anyone can tell you that I always, ALWAYS got the same exact thing from Mother's, which was their Vegetable soup with a side of brown rice. I miss Mother's a lot, and while nothing will ever take its place, I think Soup Soup is going to become one of my new favorite places to grab a bite - I've been back twice this week so far!
