I absolutely love soup.
It's almost always welcome as comfort food, even when I'm not feeling bad.
My quest/question is about soups that make a meal. I've tried lots of pho, some udon/soba, laksa, and pork bone, amongst them all great and not good versions.
Where have you had soup that was satisfying and filling, being as meal-like as if you had ordered 'solid' food?
ravis soup...on adelaide (I think).
He is a master of spice, flavor, texture, complexity,...
the soup is served in a massive bowl..and you wont even need a sandwich!!
I was there recentely for lunch, and Im delighted to see that Im not his only fan.
Try Soup Nutsy on the concourse level of the TD exchange tower. It's a knock off of the Soup Nazi. You get free bread and fruit with each soup. Very rich and flavourful.
I suggest you try Blue Danube Sausage House at 24 Chauncey Avenue.
They have packaged takeout Hungarian soups in quart(?) containers. They also have a hot deli counter with a daily soup special. The fact that the soup is not fresh is a plus. Hungarian soups do best the next day reheated.
From my visit I remember only Dry Bean Soup and Lentil Soup. These soups are typically spicey (not hot), rich, heavy, smokey soups thickened by a roux and sour cream and flavoured with bay leaf.
soup is one of my favorite foods!
In Oakville Sweet Smoke has a great chicken tortilla soup..it is adobe chicken in a rich, thick broth with great spices, crispy tortilla strips and creme fraiche..
I'm always on the lookout for a great French Onion or Manhattan Chowder
