What's your favorite comfort soup of all time?

Hey fellow hounds, I'm craving a hearty soup on this rainy fall day. What is your favorite comforting soup ? I love mushrooms, if that sparks any ideas.

  1. Jump's Wild and Tame Mushroom soup is delish. Quanto Basta makes a perfect hearty minestrone.
    If you have a can opener - Unico or Primo make a great lentil soup.
    If I'm near my mother - her chicken soup is the best soup of all time.
    If I'm near Tuscany, a bowl of Ribollita is perfection.

    1. Folks, please keep discussion focused on where amycakes22 can find great soup in the city. Any recipes for homemade soups should be posted on the Home Cooking board. Thanks!

        1. Borscht from Amber European on Bloor, just west of Jane, is perfect for a rainy day like today. They even have a version with little meat dumplings. Also, great goulash soup is available.

            Is the borscht at Amber a strained borscht or a chunky borscht, bogie? Have been meaning to try Amber for years.

            Chopin serves a decent borscht, but it's a strained borscht, and I prefer the chunky kind, with lots of vegetables.

              Definitely chunky, lots of veggies and body.

                Thanks bogie. Hope to try their borscht sometime soon.

          2. You can never go wrong with a big bowl of pho or ramen either:)

              Precisely. Get the Netsu Ramen (spice level 2) at Kenzo (soon opening on Bloor, west of Spadina - Yeah!!!) or the satay seafood pho at Golden Turtle. Other than my mother's cabbage borscht with flunken, those are my go-to bowls of goodness.

              And gogomiser has a good point too, the pea soup at United Bakers, with a buttered bagel, is pretty darn good.
