    You can't always get noodles and besides it's the bubbemycetin that's the active ingredient.

      The OP in that old thread can be happy again because it looks like Soup Freaks has survived and re-opened across the street from their old location near Mission and New Montgomery (closer to Mission and Third now).

      I don't know what that poster had against SF Soup Co., but I think their "Grandma's" chicken soup is a pretty good bowl of soup and they have lots of locations around SF.

      Whole Foods makes one for moments of real desperation. It needs doctoring up, as on its own its rather lacking in flavor. The ingredients are good though - plentiful chicken and noodles - the flavors are just very bland.

        I go to the chicken soup at St. Francis fountain when I'm stressed. Max's Diner matzoh ball soup never disappoints.

          How about the Pho Ga at Turtle Tower.

              It's in SOMA at 6th and Brannan. I thought the pho ga there was fine but prefer the Geary location, though mostly for non-chow-related reasons - it's much cleaner than the Tenderloin one and feels a little cozier than the SOMA one, considerations that become more important when you're sick and in need of comfort food.

            Probably too late for the OP, but this thread was on my mind today as I was headed home from work with a cold.

            For my money, the tortilla soup at Chilango is one of the best value lunches in the Upper Market area. It's $6 for a quart of soup with a clamshell of freshly fried tortilla strips; I usually split the soup in half and eat it for two meals.

            The soup includes tender, fork-shredded chicken, soft lumps of cheese and avocado, and a few vegetables in a warming chicken-tomato broth. Not exactly a chicken noodle soup, but hits the spot.
