What is it about chicken velvet soup?

Feb 13th, 2014 | by Eat Drink Indy | News

It must be that smooth, velvety wonderfulness that makes chicken velvet soup so enduringly popular in Indianapolis — or maybe it’s just memories of enjoying the soup in the iconic L.S. Ayres Tea Room.

Either way, if you have a taste for the warming and, yes, velvety, soup, stop in at Soupremacy, 7 E. Market St. Situated just off Monument Circle, this tiny shop features a variety of soups made by local chef Tony Hanslits of The Chef’s Academy and Nicole-Taylor’s Pasta and Market.

Soupremacy was sampling the chicken velvet earlier this week; it should be on the menu by Feb. 14. Prices at Soupremacy are $3.49 for an 8-ounce bowl, $4.99 for 12-ounce, $6.90 for a 16-ounce or get a trio of 6-ounce bowls for $6.25.
