It was a cold day in February and we were looking for a nice bowl of soup for lunch to warm us up. We were attracted to the cafe by an A frame board on the main shopping street which gave details of the day's specials. We ventured up the alley and found Pea Souk quite tucked away. Tiny place, probably seats only 11 or 12 people at a push! When we arrived there were only 2 other diners but I imagine in summer you'd need to be lucky, or early, to get a place for lunch. We ordered Sweet Potato; Leek, Ginger and chilli soup which came in charming rustic bowls with a huge hunk of artisan granary bread and a generous pot of butter. Service was prompt and friendly. The soup was absolutely delicious and just what we needed!
We were seated by the display cabinet and the salads displayed looked really yummy as did the other daily special, a beetroot, spinach and Goat's cheese tart - describing the ingredients in no way does justice to this amazing looking tart. I wished I'd had more room to order a slice.
The bill came to a modest £10 including our two sparkling mineral waters. I'd definitely recommend this vegetarian gem to anyone (even though neither my friend nor I are vegetarians).
