soup in downtown/financial area

With the fall upon us, I want SOUP! Warm, filling, delicious soup.
I am wondering where people go to fix this craving.
I have an ABP in my building, Temptations right across the street (not a big chili fan, though, i have heard RAVE reviews of theirs!), Souper Salads...doesnt appeal for some reason (i can be convinced!)....and yes, I know Chinatown is just a few minutes away, but on a busy and crazy day, i need me a quick fix.
If only there was a New England Soup Factory around here. that would be heaven!
most likely will do ABP today, but excited for suggestions that can be tried out TOMORROW!!

  1. It won't work until you have some time to unwind, but try Shabu Zen.

    1. Or go for noodle soups in Chinatown. The better places are Hong Kong Eatery (wonton noodles with roast duck is my favorite) on Harrison and perhaps what used to be called Best Cafe on Tyler (not sure if that's still the name).

        Go to Chinatown for any of the "pho" places. ..Pho Pasteur, Pho Hoa, Pho Xinh Xinh, Pho 54, etc. Hong Kong Eatery , Vinh Sin, Shabu Zen are also excellent choices. If you're too lazy for Chinatown, then Cup-O-Noodle is great and costs only 50 cents.

          i definitely agree with the Chinatown Pho choices- these are so so good and healthy tasting. I also really like the soups at Delicato on City Hall Avenue next to Old City Hall- but that might be a walk for you if you are not interested in walking to Chinatown. Delicato lists their daily soup options on their website early each morning too - www.delicatocafe.com

      2. I had a soup to die for today at Sultan's Kitchen on State Street. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
