DETROIT SOUP - CAMPUS MARTIUS/HARD ROCK
Try Mudgie's on Porter. over in corktown 313-961-2000 a different flavor every day - (Try the Madill -one of the best handheld items I have eaten) they used to be McNally's Deli (which is now on Woodward- look for the giant pickle) and also an option.
These are so new they aren't even listed on www.guidetodetroit.com
there is a little carry out place in the first national building on the first floor on woodward (sorry i don't know the name but it is not the new nino cutraro place, enotecha) that has good soup and sandwiches. i have had decent soup at the woodward but it is more of a sit down place than a quick grab a bite place. i have also had good soup at the thai place on woodward and the orchid thai in the compuware building.
i miss britt's cafe in the silver's store on congress which had great black bean soup. and we sure could use a place that serves a big bowl of pho.
