Save On Meats makes tomato soup for the soul--plus a reality show
SinceSave On Meats (43 West Hastings Street) opened last summer, many people have raved—justifiably—about its high-quality $6 burger and fries. At this time of year, though, the excellent tomato soup calls to me. It’s a steal at $3 a cup or $5 a bowl, warm chive biscuit included. If you grew up on Campbell’s, this house-made version will open your eyes. Save On fans will also be interested in Gastown Gamble, the reality show chronicling the diner’s operations and Downtown Eastside challenges. It premiers tonight (January 18) at 6:30 p.m. on OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network (Canada). If you miss that, it runs again at 8 p.m. on Friday (January 20). The regular time slot is 6:30 p.m. Wednesdays.
