Restaurant Review: LADLES Homemade Soups

After two weeks of eating succulent Lowcountry shrimp (boiled, steamed, and fried), fried oysters, and thick juicy grilled steaks, a body needs a change. LADLES Homemade Soups was just the change the ladies needed.

It was a hot summer day when we strolled into LADLES in Freshfields Village, located between Kiawah and Seabrook Islands. Sounds crazy—hot soup on a hot day! It was crazy alright…crazy good!!

Based on a recommendation from my neighbor I opted to try a hot soup- Tomato Basil. This creamy soup was delish. It was creamy yet had just the right amount of fresh basil and chunks of tomatoes.

Just because this is a soup restaurant do not pass up the sandwiches and wraps. I choose a southwest chicken wrap, which had a nice kick of spicy.

The BLT on ciabatta bread was reported to be very good with thick slices of bacon, tomato, and fresh leaf lettuce.

Perhaps the best looking (and tasting) sandwich of the day was the LADLES Grilled Cheese. LADLES knows how to make an ordinary sandwich extraordinary. You add bacon of course. The grilled cheese sandwich came laden with a couple of different cheeses, red onion, tomato, and bacon grilled to perfection on hearty grained bread.

I’ll be back this fall and I already have my eye on bowl of beef stew or French onion soup. Better make that a “pot o’ soup” to go!
