copied as an idea from the Wash DC/Balt board...who has the best soup? What is the restaurant & what is the soup? (or chili)
My favorite are ANY from Carmine's in Narberth- they have all been delicious! I always get the tasting menu so I can't recall exact kinds
Shrimp wonton from Lakeside Deli
Matzoh Ball from Kibbitz
Village Pea from Rangoon
Canh Chua Tom Cay from Hoa Viet
Most of the Pho's from Pho Cali
maybe the Jambalaya from Grace's Tavern, though of arguable soupiness
still haven't gotten around to trying the menudo at La Lupe's, that's next on my soup list.
and forgot to mention Hot & Sour from Lee How Fook! although I'm sure someone would mention it.
I haven't been there in awhile, but Cucina Forte has a wonderful soup. I think it's called Maria's special soup or something like that. Anyone?
Tom Ka Gai, Chiken and Coconut Milk at Siam Cuisine. There are also some winners at Rangoon (both Chinatown)
Sank Kee's Wanton Duck Noodle both at the Reading Terminal and in China Town is my favorite( next to my own home made Matzoh Ball and Mexican Turkey Albondigas soup )that I have ever had.My entire family is nutty for this soup and we drive from all over the Phila. area to have a bowl.
