Looking for best soup

eatingoutdc Mar 2, 2013 08:17 PM

My friend is ill and she really has a craving for some amazingly delicious Tom Yum or Hot and Sour soup (I know, different). So I told her once she stops being contagious I will go with her somewhere. But I don't know any good places for these types of soup in Northern Virginia. Looking for places in NoVA because I don't feel like driving that far. Too bad she's maxed out on pho because we both know plenty of great pho places.

      Bring her some miso soup. You don't need to breathe her germs.

        If you're only interested in soups from a limited area/cuisine, you might find it helpful to specify same in your headline.

          I am a huge fan of the Lenten soups served at the Byzantine Church in Annandale every Friday through Lent. They are all non-meat (mostly Eastern European soups - with a smattering of more American soups). Only through Lent. $4 for a pint of home made soup. You never know what they will serve and there is always a choice of two soups. I love the green bean with a little sour cream, borscht, sauerkraut mushroom, mushroom barley, and the salmon asparagus soups. Haven't had one I haven't enjoyed!

            I really like the pork foot stew at Thai Square, it is homey and so well seasoned and comforting.

              Sweet Spicy Sour Salmon soup from Nam Viet. It has tomatoes and pineapple. I hate mixing savories and sweets, but somehow this dish does it.

                House of Dynasty in Hayfield offers a very nice hot and sour soup.

                  I sure hope the OPs friend is fully recovered by now, but for posterity, I really like the Thai Tom Yum Soup with noodles and a grilled veggie burger on top at Sunflower.
