Now that the weather is cooling down a bit, does anyone have a favorite soup or recipe?
I love the Jalapeno Corn Chowder at Gruene River Grill.

Favorite Soup - Kimchi Jigae at either 'Korean Restaurant' - a small cafe inside the Korean market on the west side of Lamar & Airport - or at the cafe inside of 'New Oriental Market' which, strangely, is just a block south on Airport.
Spicy kimchi broth, onions, peppers, chunks of pork, tofu. Served boiling hot with a bowl of sticky sushi rice.
Least favorite soup - the Hot & Sour Soup at Kim Phung. Someone here posted about how they get cravings for the sweet orange version that Kim Phung makes. I made the mistake of ordering it. It just sucks. It's not spicy, and it isn't sour. And it was overly thick. Decent crash-diet food, I suppose.
Now - someone here post about some good chili places, or I'm quitting this board.
My favorite soup in town is NS 14 from Madam Mam's. it has beef and fish balls and imitation crab and sometime it is so spicy that it is hard to finish.
On the opposite end of the spectrum I love the creamy soups from New World Deli especially the clam chowder and the cream of Spinach.
Also you can find me at Whole Foods at least once a week in their seafood soup section. My favorite is the salmon and corn chowder but they also have a lobster bisque and some others that are really good.
Really ? I always swing by to take a peek, and while they smell and look pretty decent, the seafood itself is usually quite pathetic. Scant in quantity, generally kind of rubbery, probably due to sitting in a hot bath for hours.
The salmon chowder did look like the best bet, though.
