Soups On

by Visit Ventura

Rain has its cozy beauty, and a steaming bowl of delicious soup just makes the world cozier and, well, more beautiful and delicious.

Andria’s Seafood Restaurant

Andria’s clam chowder has made more top ten lists than Taylor Swift. With good reason. Bring your appetite, and order the sourdough bread bowl.

Banzai Marina

Just a block down the street from Lure, their carrot ginger soup — spiced with fresh ginger, curry powder, and lemon juice — adds zest to any kind of day.

Brophy Brothers

Brophy Brothers are across the parking lot from Andria’s (in Ventura Harbor), offering a culinary win-win. Ladle up their fish stew cioppino, as rain turns the boats to ghost ships.

Paradise Pantry

Their fish stew — fresh fish in a white wine, saffron and tomato broth with roasted peppers, garlic, and herbs — cries cozy (they also do a soup of the day). Across the street, the San Buenaventura Mission absorbs the rain has it has for 230-plus years.

Lure Fish House

Torn between the New England clam chowder and the Veracruz red clam chowder? Fine. Ask them to mix them, half and a half. If you feel like treating yourself, try their Cioppino with Lobster Tail.

Kao Ramen by Mama

Choose pretty much anything on the menu. Soup is what they do, but this is not your mama’s ramen. Savor the Thai influences, and then walk a few doors down to catch a rainy day matinee at the Century 10 movie theater.

Taqueria Tepatitlan

Browse working art studios on Ventura’s west side, then come here for some of the best menudo (a beef stew with red chilis) or albondigas soup (meatballs with vegetables) you’ll ever find.

Social Tap

Their chicken tortilla soup is the perfect core warmer. When you’re done, grab your raincoat and walk the half block to the beach to contemplate the waves in the rain.

Spencer Makenzie’s

Their homemade chowder comes in a cup, bowl, or sourdough bread bowl. Sit at the convivial counter and strike up a conversation with another happily rain-soaked soul.
