Soup Near Lowe's Boston

  • 8

We're catching one of the Boston Film Fest movies tonight at the Lowe's Boston Commons and need to have some sustenance before hand. I, however, am stuffed up like a hog and can't smell or taste a darn thing. Where can we go get some soup?

I've thought of Pho Pasteur, Pho Hoa, HKE for wonton soup, & Lucky House for fish maw (wait, scratch that one).

Which place should I go to? Are there better options?

  1. I love the wonton noodle soup at HKE.

    1. I like all the places on your list. I'd add Taiwan Cafe -- they have a nice variety of soups on their menu.

      1. aww man ... fish maw. So not what I expected.

        Maybe Silvertone for tomato soup and grilled cheese.

        I like the dac biet at Pasteur, with some extra spice thrown in. I am not a pho connoisseur but it's quite tasty if you can handle the heavy-handed star anise (I don't particularly like licorice).

        Within the first few bites of the beef and poblano at TC, I start to breathe normally (if congested) and taste stuff again. And they have a number of interesting soups.

        1. The dong quai duck soup at TC looks mighty good. I often forget they serve soup since I'm always after their brunch options on weekends. Good call Dax & MichealB - thanks!

          1. The pho at Xinh Xinh is terrific.

            1. I really like the Pho Pasteur in Chinatown. Being Vietnamese, That one really feels authentic. Don't be afraid to add the extra spices to your Pho from the dish of garnishes that accompanies the Pho! I also like the Seafood Noodle soup with the yellow noodles.

              1. Penang has some very spicy sinus-clearing soup-noodle dishes.

                  The prawn noodle soup at Penang is very good. Curry mee is quite nice.
