Best winter melon soup in the SGV?

Winter melon soup was one of my favorite dishes when I used to frequent Phoenix Garden in NYC (not the Midtown/Murray Hill reincarnation, but the original Elizabeth St location). I haven't come across many places serving it in the SGV; I gather it's principally a Cantonese dish, so that's not too surprising. That said, who has the "best" winter melon soup in the SGV (or environs)?
Are you talking about straight winter melon soup or the winter melon soup that is actually served in half of a winter melon? If you are talking about the latter, it's usually either a daily special or specially-ordered. I've had that version at dinner in a number of Cantonese restaurants: Empress Harbor, Capital Seafood, NBC Seafood, etc. I didn't find much of a difference between them. They were all really good.
