LA Soup And Specialty Foods Expands, Offers Pop-Up Service At projectY Cowork Oct. 25

LA Soup and Specialty Foods, LLC, owned by Monica Van de Water, has announced it will be offering a pop-up soup and perogies service for lunch and dinner at projectY cowork Los Alamos Tuesday, Oct. 25.
Since 2015, Van de Water has been offering home delivery service of specialty soups and comfort food sides she cooks out of her licensed commercial-grade kitchen in White Rock. Having attracted some loyal followers, through her research and development over the years, Van de Water is now ready to expand and wants to introduce her food to the greater Los Alamos and White Rock communities.  
During the pop-up, patrons may pick up food 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., for lunch and 4-6 p.m. for dinner from projectY cowork at 150 Central Park Square. Van de Water will be serving her roasted pumpkin garlic soup with Brazilian cheese breads, as well as perogies smothered with either caramelized onions and bacon, or a vegetarian-friendly version with mushrooms. Single- and family-sized portions will be served to eat on-site or take home. Advance orders may be made through the LA Soup and Specialty Foods’ website, but it is not required.
“I have been building a business slowly over the years, and figuring out what people of White Rock and Los Alamos want,” Van de Water said. “I put myself in their position as a customer. If I’m going to spend my hard earned money, it better be good and I better have good service.”
LA Soup and Specialty Foods, LLC traditionally has one family-friendly choice every week, with prices comparable to eating out. A meal for a family of four costs $28 to $34, which includes breads, sides and free delivery. Van de Water also makes meals she grew up with, such as shepherd’s pie, perogies, chili and chowders, and loves to make modern and creative salads and pastas. Dishes are high in flavor, and low on butter and oils for most dishes. All stocks, broths, and dressings are made fresh, and ingredients are bought locally and selected for freshness and flavor. Baking is done day of delivery.
