And why should they not? We eat warm food all year long, so why not soup? “We even have specific summer soups,” Maarten de Rooy says. Together with his partner Rene Aarsman, he runs this cute little place in Haarlem. This summer they are serving a Mulligatawny soup with sweet potato, mango and curry. “We have five soups on the menu, three of them differ every week: one with chicken, one with another kind of meat and one vegan. The Indian Lentil Soup is always available, since that has been the most popular since the beginning.”
