For quite some years I had been working at the European Parliament. Great work, tight schedules and usually not enough time for lunch. There is an ok-food-choice around the institutions, but it still seemed that sandwiches were for most of us the fastest and easiest solution. But after a while sandwiches just aren’t tasty anymore and I missed variety, something to choose from when things had to go fast and easy at noon. And slowly a dream developed on my mind. Experiencing asian street food surely helped to get the picture clearer: What about food-bikes, circeling around in the European Quarter? Hm, wouldn’t that be something…? In summer 2016 I discovered XYZ Cargo bikes in Hamburg. They let you build your own stylish, light and handy bikes, cargo bikes and food bikes. From that point on things developed pretty fast: I decided to go for it. Quit my job, found a creative chef, a co-cooking space, bikers, a friend to create a feel-good-design and logo and I went through long lists and demands of the admininstrations (believe me that was the hardest part).
And here we are. Proudly presenting: SOUPREISE.
Soupreise sells fast food. Quality-fast food. Food for people who do not have time to stand in line, fight their place in the cantine or sit down for two hours in waitress-leaving -you-to-wait restaurants. Come by and enjoy: We sell our fresh soup like a coffee-to-go in a large cup, that makes it most easy to carry and sip. Or slurp, as you like. You can take the cup to your meeting, bench in the park, office desk, wherever your busy schedule takes you. We cook classical recepies, but also love to try new stuff, every day new recepies. We serve vegetarian and soups for meat-lovers.Our dishes will return to nature after you have enjoyed your soup: everything is biodegradable, from the cup to the spoon.
