Colder Temps Bring Back Customer Favorite For A New Pairing
Probably one of the most soothing and sentimental dishes that cold weather brings is the traditional tomato soup and grilled cheese. Like any good food pairing, this delicious duo complements one another with flavors and textures; crispy and creamy, asking to be combined.
In Mediterranean regions, basil and tomato is a classic combination. Just in time for cooler weather, the Tomato-Basil Soup is made from scratch, topped with feta cheese crumbles and a sprinkle of fresh basil.
“The Tomato Basil Soup is one of our most requested seasonal menu items,” said Dan Simpson, CEO, Taziki’s Mediterranean Café. “The soup’s growing popularity has ensured its return for a fifth year in all Taziki’s locations.”
The founder of Taziki’s, Keith Richards developed the savory signature sandwich with soup nostalgia in mind, blending grilled onions, melting cheddar cheese and tomato chutney inside a grilled pita for a three-dimensional menu item.
“Taziki’s guests have been asking for a full-bodied signature cheese sandwich,” said Richards. “Our Cheesy Chutney Melt pairs magnificently with our rich and tangy Tomato Basil Soup, ensuring a crispy, cheesy bite with every spoonful.”
Taziki’s more health-conscious guests can choose to have their Tomato-Basil Soup with a side salad or just the soup itself, served with baked pita.
The Tomato Basil Soup is available at all Taziki’s locations through January 23 and the Cheesy Chutney Melt is available as a companion in Nashville, Atlanta, Birmingham, and Richmond.
