Welcome to YQtravelling’s FoodFriday. The day of the week when I show off some of the lovely eats I had while travelling.
Today we’re having “sopa a la minuta” which translates to “soup in minutes” (I think).
I love soups a lot. (OK, probably not as much as Jodi who is a “soup expert“.) I prefer scalding hot soups to cold soups as I love how the hot liquid reminds me that I’m alive and slurping soup.
While in Peru, I had the chance to have soups. I featured seafood soups a few months ago.
Most of the soups I had were “sopa a la minuta” which I think means soup that is so easy to make, it only takes minutes.
Sopa a la minuta feels like Chinese ABC soup but with noodles. It just confuses me as the normal “soups” I have do not have noodle in them or else they would be called noodle soup.
This dish is usually found as part of a tourist set menu, sort of an appetizer before your main dish.

Now all together:
Have you tried sopa a la minuta? Did you like it?
