ISO of Chicken Soup in Bernal/Mission are

  • 6

Our house is beset by colds and I'd like to pick up a large container of chicken soup to nurse us with. Last time I got soup at El Patio, I was undone by the amount of salt. Anyone tried soups at any of the places along Mission lately and can recommend a good spot? Any nationality will do, under the circumstances.

FYI, I would prefer not Dusit, Jasmine Tea House, Pad Thai or El Patio.

Thank you!

  1. It may be a little far, but Mel's Drive In makes excellent chicken soup from scratch. Nearest location is probably 4th & Mission.

    1. There have been a couple of posts about Roosevelt Tamale Parlor--people have reported really liking the chicken soup there.

      There is a brothy soup at Lotus Garden that a lot of people like. I imagine you've tried that soup in the past.

      Also, in that Mission Market mall (I think that's the name of the place) on the corner of Mission & 22nd, there are several restaurants, and I espied a banner yesterday advertising that pho is now available.

      1. Here is a recent report on the chicken soup at Lotus Garden (scroll down a bit for J's report).


        that would be my choice in the area.

        1. I would also recommend Lotus Garden's chicken soup. Crystal clear broth packed with flavor, fresh vegetables, excellent soup. Just had it last week.
