Gazpacho at Eppie's in Charlottesville, VAI am a big fan of gazpacho. It’s so flavorful and there is zero guilt, no matter how much you eat. Today I walked over to Eppie’s to get myself a cup ($3.50! what a deal), and remembered something that not everyone knows: Eppie’s is a little hidden soup gem on the mall. They don’t overdo it by offering too many – they only have two soups per season. But they are all delicious.

The gazpacho at Eppie’s is blended nicely, garnished with finely chopped onions, cucumbers, chives, and peppers for those who like it a little chunky. The flavor is rather subtle at first but finishes with a nice kick. As gazpacho goes, it’s a rather pretty meal too. One warning – they are are generous with their portions and with the garlic and onions, so a cup may be plenty, and beware when talking to others.

As usual, the service was great and super fast. Wonderful vegan option under $5 – can’t beat that!
