When the time comes to serve up a hearty soup or stew at your restaurant, reach for the soup spoons. This type of restaurant spoon is the best tool to use to scoop up soups, sauces or other liquids. It is of middling size compared to other silverware types. Soup spoons sometimes double as dessert spoons as they are about the same size. This type of spoon features a rounded bowl and a length of between 6 and 8 inches. The bowl is large enough to get a full mouthful per scoop.
When setting either a formal or casual place setting, the soup spoon goes on the right side of the plate to the right of the dinner knife and teaspoon, often for formal events, a table spoon will not be used and the soup spoon will replace it. Soup is a great way to start a meal, or as a meal in itself for lunch. Serve your soups to perfection with the help of a great set of soup spoons among your restaurant supplies. For hotel silverware or restaurant silverware collections, soup spoons are a must, and they can do double duty in your establishment as they can be used to serve desserts as well. Your soup spoons will get a lot of use, so make sure you choose a style of flatware that is able to survive. Choose 18/10 stainless steel or 18/8 stainless steel for the strongest and most durable flatware, this type of steel has a small amount of nickel in the alloy that makes it stronger and more resistant to bending or being scratched. 18/0 stainless steel flatware is a great choice for businesses that need to save a few bucks, it won’t last as long as higher grade stainless but it is much more affordable and it still comes in many different patterns to fit nearly any décor.
