January is national soup month, and it happens to be coinciding with the cold weather we’ve been having.

Hot foods are always comforting in winter, and it’s fun to celebrate food-related “holidays.” So really there’s no wrong reason to have soup right now.

We have plenty of places in East Dallas to find some. Here are a few.
