I have a fetish for blackbean soup, I'll admit. Therefore, the Zoup in Troy gets my four starts (but not five, since it's in a tacky mini-mall). They fufilled my desire for a cup of blackbean soup and all was well.
The place kind of has a new-fast-food feel to it, like Qdoba or Chipotle (sans the burritos). It's clean and the decor is appealing. The soup is delicious.
I just wish the location wasn't in a minimall, with the windows overlooking a cracking parking lot and a dirt lot next door.
