That’s right – Souper Freak, a conspicuously bright red truck has been spotted on Hopkins ground, Fridays from 11a.m.-2p.m. The truck specializes in gourmet soups, salads and sandwiches. I’ve also learned that the soup operator, Irene Smith, is married to the chef who owns Big Bad Wolf House of Barbecue, Scott Smith (this was my FAVORITE Hopkins Spring Fair food vendor). With that said, I know Souper Freak is going to be a hit.
The truck is currently serving soups such as Vegan Thai Carrot and Turkey Chili with Hominy. To accompany, there are options such as a BBQ Chicken Wrap, a Grilled Cheese and a Spinach Salad with Tropical Vinaigrette.
According to a recent article in the Baltimore Sun’s Dining@Large, the Souper Freak recently ran into some controversy regarding food truck permits. Apparently finding a place to park is a huge difficulty in the city, and obtaining proper permits is a laborious process. I can only hope Baltimore city is supportive of the recent mobile food trend, as it really adds some variety and character to our food scene.
