The secret is out on Ottawa's Soup Guy

Pssst…Ottawa has a Soup Guy. And his soup kitchen is at the food court in the World Exchange Plaza called Le Muffin Plus.

You'd think muffins would be the specialty of this outlet, but it's the myriad soup options that draw the crowd from the Hill and surrounding cubes. And it's a popular spot that consistently causes a queue of customers, particularly during the lunch hour.

The Souper Special came with a Panini, side salad, soup and a drink. The smoked meat Panini was fresh, not too fatty, filled with a generous amount of meat and laced with yellow mustard. On the side, the Greek salad was fresh, crisp and sprinkled with cubes of feta. And the soup brew contained lots of clams and nicely cooked potatoes. Finally, the strawberry smoothie was a refreshing sipper.

A Metro reader whispered this lunch spot tip to me, and it's a secret worth sharing.
