Westchester- Best soups

debmom Jan 8, 2014 08:09 AM

It's freezing cold outside and what could be better than a nice bowl of soup? Any suggestions for great soups to eat at a restaurant or great soups to buy and bring home. Thanks.

    It's not cheap, but I love Ladle of Love in Mt. Kisco - especially their Harvest Celebration soup. So good!

      A fairly well-kept secret are the great soups at Melt in White Plains.

        Blue pig in croton has amazing soup!

        And Birdsall house's chili is worth a trip alone!

          I agree about Blue Pig--but note that they're now closed for the season.

            Thank you spa! I'm sad to hear that I'll have to wait a few months for more soup! I was eating their soup last month for a week nonstop with a bad cold-- the chicken noodle is my favorite but we loved every kind we tried

              Not sure when they reopen, but I know some of us are already looking forward to it!
              BTW, I made a mean potato-leek soup last night!

          The soups at A'Mangiare are really good, homemade home-style soups. The lentil is particularly good. I go to the one in Bronxville, but there are several others in the county.

            Juniper in Hastings. Some of the best puree soups I've ever had.

                What are you talking about? It's 27 degrees. Time for ice cream. ;)

                  That's what I told my students today too! Nice and balmy outside. Mr. Softee time. :)

                I love soup! I haven't been in a year or so but, the soups at the Mamaroneck Diner were great. Also in Mamaroneck, the little Bodega across from the train station serves a columbian beef or chicken soup that is really a meal and unforgettable. Siagonese on Central Ave in Hartsdale does a good Pho (also a meal). City Limits on the corner of Central ave and 119 has good soup but, I hate the shallow soup plate that they serve it in.

                  Probably ALL of the latino restaurants will have terrific soups. Besides the Colombian ones, the Peruvians certainly do.

                    Great soups at El Tambo in Ossining.

                  Check out the other CH post about Ramen in Peekskill! That sounds good, too!
