Good soups in LA?

I am looking for places that have great soups. I love Pho and Thai-style soups, but also interesting variations of classics or superior classic soups.
Any recommendations would be appreciated.

        i thought My Taco served sheep, not goat? either way, whatever is in that dish is AMAZING.

            no wonder i liked it better than the lamb soup i had earlier that day.

              yes, it's a bit more funky and rich. I am craving that soup right now...

      2. In OC, Ruta's has great home-made soups.

        Rutabegorz Restaurant
        211 N Pomona Ave, Fullerton, CA 92832

        1. I love the shio ramen at Asahi Ramen on Sawtelle in West LA. Their Gyoza are also very good.

          1. not exactly what you are looking for, but so excellent that it must be mentioned:

            the shrimp soup at mariscos chente
            the fish soup at maricos chente

            Mariscos Chente 4532 S. Centinela(at Gilmore )Mar Vista, CA
