"The man that cannot visualize a horse galloping on a tomato is an idiot" -Andre Breton, Poet
I had a version of this soup when traveling. I think that the only difference was that it was served with a dollop of truffle oil on top of the tomato salsa. If you can't afford the truffle oil, a teaspoon of great quality extra virgin olive oil will bring a lot of richness to the soup.
