In 1989 there was a huge ice storm in this part of Mississippi. At the time we were living out in the country from Vicksburg. We were without power for a week.During that time we ate what canned food we had warmed in the fireplace, where we also huddled to stay warm.

After 5 days, the roads were cleared enough to go to Vicksburg. There we went to New Orleans Cafe (now The Biscuit Club) where I had a big steaming bowl of oyster and artichoke soup. It was THE BEST. Was it the soup or the circumstance? Who knows, but it was the best soup I have ever eaten.

    Shrimp won-ton soup with fresh mustard greens and BBQ roast duck from First Chinese BBQ in Dallas. Triple yummo!

      Over the weekend I had a cup of "rosemarina" at the[url='http://www.ariston-cafe.com/']Ariston Cafe[/url]. It's made with orzo and chicken stock and I really liked it.

        Honest to god, I cannot believe people said 'Campbells'!

        My son thinks this is the best too but he is 4....

          In October, the day the stock market went way down, 499 stocks in the S&P 500 went down, the only one that went up was Campbell's soup.

            I've mentioned this on another thread, but it definitely belongs on here. My favorite soup is the creamy chicken n' dumpling at a place here in Lansing called Popolano's ( on Torrence just south of I-80. ) It's the one soup there that's available every day, and it is delicious. I always order it whenever I go there for their wonderful fried chicken ( Chicagoland's best, IMHO. ) Just make sure you stay clear of their spaghetti dinner, though...really bad news. I do have to admit that I have a favorite canned soup, Campbell's Bean with Bacon ( Mom fed this one to me a lot. ) I've tried a couple of Progresso's soups, and I'm amazed by how bland and flavorless they are; I won't be trying anymore of those.

              The Mexican specialty carne en su jugo is the king of all soups.

                          If prepared carefully and properly, nothing is better than a bowl of french onion soup.  This of course, is just my opinion.

                            Other than my soup, I will have to say the French Onion Soup at Marigold Bistro in Colorado Springs, CO. Best ever!!

                              Everything descibed in this thread looks delicious to me.

                              However, last night when I came in from doing some chores outside in the cold damp weather (snow flurries) I was chilled through and through. A large cup of steaming Campbells Tomato Soup was the perfect "warm me up" at that time. Sometimes "simple" is good !

                                Next time, take it one notch higher by using 1 can of Tomato Soup & add 1 can of Beef or Vegetable Broth to it. Yum!

                                  Lobster Newburg from the New England Soup Factory. Sadly they left NJ but still have a few locations up North.

                                    I love a good chicken noodle soup, and a favorite of mine is served at the New Archview restaurant in Chicago, on Archer Ave. west ( I think ) of Damen Avenue. They don't have it every day, but I remember it popping up pretty frequently; maybe two or three days a week.

                                            The days(and nights) we were without power, we kept a large stock pot simmering on one of the gas stoves burners. In it was a bunch of beef marrow bones and chopped up pot roast and one ribeye steak, Bullion Cubes, and several large onions (cut up), some other seasonings and a couple of gallons of water. We added some corn and other veggies later. Not only did it make the place smell good, but having a cup of "Beefy-Onion Soup' available whenever we felt the need for a warm-up was a pretty good thing ! When it started to run low we tossed in some more meat and onion...and even a bit of gravy-mix. All in all it was a real nice thing to have around!

                                              Very timely thing to do Al.  We had a blizzard several years ago and we were without power for several days.  At that time i did not have a gas fireplace but I made stew and meatloaf on the burning logs.  It really tasted good with the house so cold.

                                                Shrimp won-ton soup with fresh mustard greens and BBQ roast duck from First Chinese BBQ in Dallas. Triple yummo!
                                                ..but do they hold a candle to really great matzo ball soup??


                                                Believe me on this one. It's better than matzo ball soup. Oy vey! I can feel my late grandmother shaking her fist at me from heaven.


                                                I can imagine herds of emasculated matzo roaming the vast plains...

                                                  For me, the world's best is my mom's chicken soup.

                                                  Then it would be Thai hot and sour at this little joint by U where i work.

                                                    Here is a vote for the French Onion Soup at the Hale Koa Hotel on the beach in Waikiki.....  It is always homemade - - always a bit different, but always delicious with its slice of french bread and the toasty melted cheese on top......   A crock of soup - - a trip to the salad bar and their crusty dinner rolls can keep a body happy for a long time......

                                                          Corn Soup and Cow Heel Soup found in Port of Spain, Trinidad & Tobago around the savannah.  Good eats.

                                                          Eat the Corn Soup first.  It's really good, but once all the grease and fat in the Cow Heel coat your mouth and tongue you won't be able to taste the Corn Soup anymore.  Follow this protocol and you'll be well rewarded.
