Editorial: What The Hell Is In This Soup?


February 4, 2016 - Local

My…my God. What the hell is this? What is this bizarre substance in my soup I ordered at Khan’s Soup-A-Catessen? I’ve never seen anything like it!

It’s so…spongy. It might be the spongiest food I’ve ever eaten. It jiggles and if I touch it with my spoon it curls up. Jesus, is this thing alive? Alive right now? This is mind-boggling.

Could it be okra? I’ve never had it before. In fact, if I’m being completely honest, I have no idea what okra is. In my mind it’s like a spongy sea plant or something. I could see this being it.

Or maybe it’s tofu cooked in a weird way? A way that gives…some sort of life to it somehow? No, that doesn’t make sense. It has to be something else. I’m pretty sure whatever it is it doesn’t have a vertebrae.

I may never figure this out. Oh well.  It’s pretty damn tasty.
