Okay, you said "World's Best" so I would have to say it is from the chain restaurant in the United Arab Emirates (I was at the one in Dubai) called Golden Fork. They have one heck of a diverse selection of food but the best food I ever (yes EVER) had was their bouillabaisse. I had never heard of this before, they have a picture menu and this picture looked good so I pointed and I received. Thick and super creamy with two crab legs sticking straight out of the center. It was unlike any other bouillabaisse I have ever eaten. I think it may have been because in addition to the saffron, there was some cheese which almost gave this a "mac & cheese" consistency. It only cost $6.00 for a huge meal sized portion. The only bouillabaisse I have tried in this country was at Mon Ami Gabi at the Paris Casino in Vegas and it was miserable and cost quadruple that of what I paid in Dubai. If anyone ever has the option to dine at a Golden Fork, go for it. When you walk in the door you see a chest of fresh seafood, you point to the one piece you want and they cook it for you. In addition to this, the Golden Fork serves Philipino, Chinese, Lebanese, American, British and Russian cuisine in addition to omelettes and the like...all served 24 hours a day. Wish Golden Fork restaurants were over here in the US. As of now, they are a 15 hour flight away from Newark

Regards,
Chris

Come to think of it, I made a great soup last week using garlic, onions, potatoes, rapini (broccoli rabe), chicken stock and ditalini. It was good, and good for me.

I think it'd be the she-crab soup I ate at a number of different places in the Outer Banks area in NC. I recall it being quite good at Kelly's, specifically.

1. The crab bisque at Jerry's Seafood Restaurant in Lanham, MD (just outside of Washington, D.C.) - fabulous.

2. Pho from any authentic Vietnamese soup kitchen - outstanding.

3. The shrimp dumpling soup (either with or without noodles) at Full Kee in DC - superb.

The soup nazi would be proud to serve any of these.

The only one I've ever been to was just north of Santa Barbara. I forget the name of the town.

Iguana Soup in Curacao, its rich, creamy, and comes with the Iguana's tail (okay maybe not the tail, but the meat tastes better then chicken!).

Two places, maybe three. The black bean soup at the Union Square Cafe in NYC and the clam chowder at the Maine Diner. The third, I will say modestly is my own split pea soup. Cheers to all.

OK....I've thought about this for a while now. This was a really, really difficult question. I just love soup so much. It was hard to pick my favorite. But I think I have it narrowed down. Really really good homemade french onion soup is right up there. Ribollita, Tuscan bread soup, which I had in Italy is a close second. But my favorite I think was a gorgeous chickpea soup...it had a salt cod cake in the middle and was drizzled with olive oil. It was a treat in taste and texture. It gets my vote for the world's best soup.

Great topic!

The best soup used to be the Chicken Corn Soup at Zinn's Diner near Ephrata, PA, but now Lapp's Restaurant in Lancaster PA makes a mean version of that. Of course, mine is better still, but I'm far too humble.

I've been thinking about this question for 3 days now and still can't answer it because soup is one of my favorite foods, both to eat and to cook. One of my favorite ways to entertain in the winter is to make 3 or 4 pots of soup, some good breads and a couple of salads and invite everyone to dig in.

ok--that's a tough one for me.. can soup would have to be traditional chicken and noodle (campbells of course) but out.... pepper pot at alley oops in elkhart indiana;french onion soup at a place near where i went to school- lawrenceville nj and-- any new england clam chowder in rhode island!!
otherwise i don't really have a favorite .. but those would have to be at the top of the list....

For soups made in private homes, I will not be modest. I will say that I made the very best Russian borsch and sauerkraut soup that one could wish for.............my lentil stew is wonderful, too.

My very favorite restaurant soups are the Lobster bisque at The Prime Rib here in Baltimore and a wonderful mussel soup that I had in France in a tiny restaurant outside of Paris. Wish I knew the name of the restaurant and also wish I had the recipe. By the way, does anyone out there have a really good recipe for mussel soup?

I think the world's best soup comes from a company in Canada...that's right it's canned, and has been around forever. Habitant French Canadian Style Pea Soup....this is made with yellow peas, nothing like green pea soup, which I also love. The company has been purchased by Campbells but so far they haven't changed anything with the exception that I can't seem to find the bigger squat cans anymore. Try it.....it's the World's best.

I think the best soup is anything that you cook at home. Why is it that home made soup seems to taste so much better than restaurant? Rex in hot,humid, expensive San Diego.

My wife's oxtail soup. The price of oxtails have substantially increased over the last several years, don't understand exactly why, but boiled oxtails result in the softest beef of all and delicious to
say the least.

the best soup I ever made was done by turning my fridge on it's side and scooping everything edible(no jars,etc)into a huge stockpot,add a bayleaf and you are in business....works best after holiday dinners or rained-out tailgate parties

I remember Habitant pea soup. I haven't seen it in more than 30 years. It was wonderful stuff.

Dearfolk,
Today I had the onion soup at The Normaltown Cafe'. PERFECTION! I left Kelli a note enclosing a hug; she deserved it.

The best soup I have ever tasted, was in a little German place in Sea Side California. It is called Stammtisch, they made a Brussel Sprout soup, I swear it was the very best in taste,texture and appearance. It was seasoned perfectly and you could taste the sprouts but not overwhelmingly.

Next best is Duartes in Pescadero Ca. The cream of Artichoke soup is excellent. And while you are there you have to try the Olallie pie which is also worth a trip.

Had to look up Seaside on a map but found it in what looks like the middle of Monterey. Is that the right place 'cause I'm maybe only the second person on earth (after you, I guess) who loves Brussel sprouts? Since I also like German food a lot, that soup sounds like something I might almost drive to Monterey for (almost).

You can mail-order Habitant split-pea soup (and an astonishing variety of other things) from hometownfavorites.com. I've used them before; they're excellent to work with.

On the other side of the culinary world, back a few years [decades] ago when I was a Sinophile [wannabe, whatever] I had some of the most awesome hot-and-sour soup in some restaurant I walked into in NYC's Chinatown. Don't know the name or place -- it was just one of those one-off walk-ins. Thinking about it, maybe it was one of those Americanized Chinese recipes -- I never found it in Chinese eateries in Asian cities. Whatever -- it was good.

The Andersen's Pea Soup near Santa Barbara is in Buellton, which is about an hour north of SB. Really good!! I think there's also an AJ Spur's there which is pretty tasty.

This is my first post to this forum. I like road trips and road trip food, so I guess I'm in the right place. Pea Soup Andersen's is one of my favorite road trip stops, so I wnated to post what my recent research (internet and first-hand) into this California-based chain has uncovered. Unfortunately, only two of the four restaurants are still operating as a Pea Soup Andersen's. The Carlsbad location is now a TGI Friday's, and the Selma (just South of Fresno) location is another restaurant. Both buildings do still have the trademwark windmill. Santa Nella (I-5) and Buellton (101) are the last holdouts. I hope they last forever. Good road trip memories, and the Santa Nella location is just about the only noteworthy stop on the entire stretch of Highway 5 between Stockton and the Grapevine just North of LA. The patty melt at Andersen's is top notch, by the way, if you are into them. My favorite way to order the pea soup is in the sourdough bread bowl w/ five toppings. Unfortunately, they usually only offer this option on weekends.

The awesome hot-and-sour soup in NYC's Chinatown could have been at the restaurant at 40 E. Broadway (it had an impossible to remember Chinese name, at least for this foreign devil). It was better than I ever found in Asia or in California. Their shrimp with chili sauce was equally awesome (as Iron Chef fans know that was invented by Chef Chin’s father).

That was back in the 1970’s and early 80’s. I was in NYC recently for the fist time in years and it was gone.

My gramma -- from Russia made the most wonderful matzoh ball soup with matzoh balls the size of marbles (just the right size for a mouthful) which floated. There were also chunks of chicken and veggies in the broth. Second best, her beef borsch. Wonderful in winter! I still make them but -- I guess that they would taste better if she were here to keep me company.

I haven't had it in quite some time, but my favorite soup would have to be Pasta Pizul (sp?) at Schiavone's Casa Mia--just point your browser to http://www.schiavones.com--which was a tomato-flavored pasta soup. Since I tended to forget the name (and still do today, to an extent!) I used to call it "Middletown soup" since the restaurant was in the Ohio city with that name.

That's pasta e fagiole (pasta and beans), called pasta fazool by some people known as Italians.

Yes it is in Monterey county the address is:1204 Echo Ave. Seaside CA.

Every dish I have tried there is outstanding, but that soup...magnificient, if you like brussel sprouts.

There are a few of us...there just has to be!
I love them! Cooked crisp-tender, then either buttered or marinated.
