Alehouse onion soup, Shoney'sCabbage Beef which I've stated here before. My own potato and vegetable beef. Question...growing up our family NEVER ate homemade soups in the summer. "Too hot" Mom would say. I find I've adopted the same ruling but have recently have really been craving homemade soup. What's your opinion?

Too hot to cook! Not too hot to eat!

On the subject:

Canned - Campbell's Italian Wedding soup.
Restaurant - unfortuntely a now closed Chinese place in Hampton VA had the best soup - Sizzling Rice Crust Soup. I've never tasted anything like it. Took them two days to make it. Very dramatic presentation at the table - throwing the cold, dried out rice into the hot soup!

By all reports the soups at Guiseppe's in Williamsburg are v.g.

All over Ireland you will find vegatable soup - every tea shop, tourist spot and almost every pub has a version of it. Thick potato based soup perfect with brown bread after a hike around the country side. I made a version of it by using a Leek & Potato Soup as a base and added carrots.

I've also made an excellent soup from the Native American/First Nations cookbook "Spirit of the Harvest" - Wild Rice and mushroom soup. I've only made it once and that was a while ago. I've been thinking about making it again.
Wow, long post!

I put my vote in for the seafood chowder at the Maine Diner in Wells. It's better than any bisque or stew that I've had on the East Coast.

Growing up, we ate lots of vegetable soup in the summer. Fresh garden vegetables at nearly every meal, and the left-overs all went into the soup pot, with or without meat. Wonderful! As for a restaurant soup, the best I have had is the she crab soup at Charley's on Shore Drive in Virginia Beach, VA.

There's an awesome Chinese soup called 'paomo' that's only common in the more Muslim areas of China, and particularly the city of Xi'an. It's basically pieces of bread in lamb broth, with bits of lamb, pickled garlic and cilantro. It's just famous enough that perhaps some chefs in Chinatowns across the US will know how to make it. Fortunately the city I lived in had a large enough Muslim population that I could get it when I wanted. Muslim Chinese food is like nothing else in the world. If I had the financial backing, I would open a restaurant myself.

For me, probably a toss-up between chilled puree of spring pea soup with mint, or an incredible puree of pumpkin soup that I ate in a family's home in France on a regular basis...I don't know, but no matter how often I try the pumpkin soups here in the States, the flavor is never the same...maybe the pumpkins are just different? Then again, it could be the dollop of "creme fraiche" which the French put on top before serving, which we don't seem to do. And the creme fraiche sold here for some reason also doesn't have the same taste...

My vote is for the Fish Chowder at the Ebb Tide Restaurant on Commercial Street in Boothbay Harbor, Maine. Just thinking about it makes me want to jump in the car and drive the 4 hours to get there. This is a great little place in downtown, open year 'round, and certainly qualified as a genuine roadfood destination.

I love all this talk of soups!

The Anne of Green Gables cookbook put out a recipe for a creamed vegetable soup which is out of this world!

Also, I love carrot and ginger soup. We have this every year at Thanksgiving as a starter.

For a chain restaurant, TGIFriday's makes a wonderful French Onion soup, rich with lots of ooy gooy cheese.

I am going to second the Whole Food's Triple Squash soup vote! Amen!

When I lived in Atlanta in the late '70's/early '80's, I loved the Sizzling Rice Soup at "Empress of China"-- they had a few restaurants around the Atlanta area. And I lived in Virginia-Highlands at that time and thoroughly enjoyed the soups made at "Capo's Cafe" which sadly closed years ago. They made a delicious cream of broccoli soup and a wonderful (hot) creamy cucumber-dill soup.

Last December, I had the most delicious butternut squash soup at "Meil's" in Stockton, NJ, right near the Delaware River. I could've eaten bowl after bowl of that!

(edited to add one I forgot) Hearth & Kettle on Cape Cod makes a fabulous lobster chowder that I have to get a few times when we're there for our yearly vacation in September.

I guess those would be my favorites of all time.

The worlds best soup may be the soup de jour!! I say that cause about once a month, Mamaw Smith cleans out the frige and makes soup out of whatever is there. It always varies cause it is always different. I have found French fries in the soup, baked potatoes, beef, pork and everything else you can think of. I guess what really matters the most is the spices she uses which always include onions and a little chili powder.

She will always freeze a little and I find soup available when she cooks a cast iron pan of Tennessee fried cornbread.

Mussel bisque at Dobson's in San Diego. A legendary mussel bisque served under a lofty crown of puff pastry, the delicately colored bisque beneath is rich and smooth as silk and spiked with sherry.

I have posessed a restaurant idea for some time where you serve nothing but soups, stews, chowders, chili's and good things to go with them. What does everyone think of the idea?

Hey Sundance Kid ---I agree with your soup de jour nomination. In my mother's home it was a wee bit different, but not much. As kids we grew up in a house that had a big old coal fired range in one corner of the kitchen. On that range, which was always hot, Mom always had a kettle of water for tea and a pot of soup de jour warm and delicious. After dinner all the leftovers went into the pot. Every day the ingredients in the soup changed--add a little more water, throw in an onion, a little salt and pepper and whatever else was laying around that was edible and we always had great soup. Plus, Every night a big pot of slow cooking oatmeal was set on the back burners (the cooler ones) and on a cold morning us kids could stand next to the warm stove and fill our plates with perfect oatmeal. The kitchen was always the warmest, most friendly place in the house. They should still be !!!!!!!

I love the idea and I would definitely patronize a restaurant like that. A few simple salad choices, some great bread, including cornbread...

The best soup I ever had was the Mushroom Medley at my Safeway. A delicious blend of 4 mushrooms, wine, cream, and silky broth. Just the aroma will make you want more!

On Sullivan's Island, *Aunt Mary's chicken gumbo over rice is a very close second to many of the she-crab soups along the SC coast.

*Not a restaurant. You have to be invited. :)

The most unusual soup I've had is the very localized clam chowder found on Okracoke Island. It's in a clear broth, almost Asian-like, and cooked with large, mild leeks. Never had this soup anywhere else.

I have to say my mother's tomato soup accompanied by grilled cheese sandwiches; her potato soup; hot and sour soup when it's made well and full of tofu, green onions, and mushrooms; and of course you can never go wrong with the good old stand by Campbells Chicken Noodle soup.

Wow. Last Friday night I dined oncioppino for the first time. It was at an Italian restaurant in West Columbia SC. It ranked right up there with the best food I've ever eaten.

Yes, it might even beat Charleston She-crab Soup.

For a canned soup, I agree. This is good stuff! I have my Canadian relatives bring it to me when they visit.

The best Minestrone I have ever had is at Pagliacci's in Denver. It is included with your meal. It's an old family recipe; absolutely delicious.

The best seafood chowders and bisques I've tasted were in various restaurants in Nova Scotia. I can't recall the names of the restaurants, but each one was fantastic.

When in Seattle for a good clam chowder, Ivar's on Pier 54. They've expanded all throughout Seattle but to truly savor the original-style, go to the Pier 54 dine-in restaurant.

Best soup has got to be my Mom's veggie soup. My mother has a huge container in the freezer and for about a month or so every veggie we eat at dinner the left over goes in the pot then at the end of the month she browns up some beef and adds water, canned crushed tomatoes, the huge container of veggies, and usually some cubed potatoes at the end because they are not good recooked. It is fun because that soup is different every time. It is a great way to avoid leftover veggies too. Everyone who ever tries it wants the recipe, which is just the funniest thing because sometimes it is real all american sometimes it has a mexican flair or an italian taste.

I will always bump for soup!

Best restaurant soup I've had is the she-crab soup at Isle of Capri in Virginia Beach. It's usually only offered as a special, but even if it's not nepotism (my FIL knows the owner) rules the day and I can order it. Seeing as I normally loathe seafood, that should tell you how good it is!

I've been trying my hand at making homemade soups lately--I found a killer tomato soup recipe that tastes remarkably like Campbell's. I throw in some little meatballs, make a salad, and there's dinner.

The BEST soup...hmmm....ugh. How hard is that to pick?

the only way to andwer would be for me to think, if I was to have pick the one soup I would want if there was only one soup left available to eat on the planet. And even then, it's a toss up.

I would have to say...with nervous twitching...that the one soup I would want would be the Oyster Stew at the Union Oyster House in Boston, MA.

boy, that was painful to pick. My favorite soup is lobster bisque, but for a BEST soup, I have to go with something unique and seperable. I've had many many good bisques from several restaurants. But this stew was unique and it's own. Like no other soup. So that's my pick. I'll stick to it...for today...at least for today.

Without a doubt the finest bowl of New England clam chowda I ever tasted was at, (hold your hats) the Lindy's Steak House in Hong Kong. I don't know what they did that was different but no-one has ever come close to that one for me.

The best soup in the world is whatever is home made and available when you most need a bowl of soup.

I don't know if they're still in business, but Mary's was a Polish lunch counter on California Ave. in Chicago's heavily Puerto Rican Humboldt Park neighborhood. Every one of their made from scratch soups and pierogies were exceptional.

If you're ever in Milford, CT, make sure to stop by Bobette's (they are right off of I-95 exit 36 at 93 Old Post Road) for their Famous Mussel Chowder, thick & hearty, perfect for a snowy day.

It is a small, little roadside dive of a place with nowhere to sit and if the lines at lunch are any indication 'tis also very well liked. It was highly recommended to me when I worked in the area and I ate there for lunch every day for two weeks. They also have some great sandwiches besides a choice of a number of soups each day beyond the house specialty.

But check the hours or call ahead because they close at 3PM in the afternoon.

Dogmeat, I'm an ex-chef. Don't do anything with it, but still love to cook for family and good friends. That soup sounds like something my husband and I would love. Think your friend would share the recipe? If not the proportions, maybe the ingredients? If not, no problem. Thanks

About 25 years ago, I ended up in Seattle. I was wandering around and came upon the wonderous Pike Place Market. This was all new and exciting to me, a Pittsburgh teenager on his own in the Jet City....It was a cold rainy day and I happened upon a stand that was selling something called Cioppino What the heck is it, I thought, so I ordered some. The guy handed me a small bowl made from sourdough bread filled with the hedy concoction. Oh, manhattan syle clam choweder...ok...cool....Then I tasted it...WHAM! It was manna from the gods! THIS WAS CIOPPINO! I've been hooked ever since.

I make a basic french onion soup, it must have an intense beef/onion flavor,i use creme sherry in the broth,some poupon mustard, and even parmesean cheese.I smoke a fillet mignon to medium,cool it off slice it thin,ladle some soup then a layer of swiss cheese,homemade croutons,then the fillet,cover with provalone, under broiler to melt cheese. it's the most popular soup we feature,it's also expensive to make.

If, for some forlorn reason or other, I had to restrict my diet to just one type of food, I think I'd pick soup. I can't think of another category of food that has more variety.

Pea Soup Anderson's, at Santa Nilla, is quite good.

Best restaurant soup I've had is the she-crab soup at Isle of Capri in Virginia Beach. It's usually only offered as a special, but even if it's not nepotism (my FIL knows the owner) rules the day and I can order it. Seeing as I normally loathe seafood, that should tell you how good it is!

I've been trying my hand at making homemade soups lately--I found a killer tomato soup recipe that tastes remarkably like Campbell's. I throw in some little meatballs, make a salad, and there's dinner.

I have been looking for a look a like to Campbell's tomato and
campbell's tomato rice soup. Could you please send me your recipe for
the tomato soup you describe above. I am living in Puerto Vallarta Mexico and it is hard to get the tomato soup here. They have a cream of tomato but it is very different than the condensed tomato in the US. Thank's for you help

It depends on the weather, but right now it's very hot and steamy out.

There is a bar in Havertown, Pennsylvania that serves REALLY great soup. It's called Peabody's Pub, on Darby Road, closer to the Eagle and Darby Road intersection. The bartender is a trip, but I will say he has calmed down a bit. It used to be, if you weren't a local, he'd let you sit for a good ten minutes before even greeting you. Then finally he would condescend to take your order, even if the bar was empty. The woman who works there is ten times worse, a real tough ass cookie. If you dare ask her what soups they have today, she'll point to the board written so small no human can read it from the tables. And I like to piss her off now so I like to ask if the kitchen is open every time I walk in no matter what time it is. (It doesn't matter what your question is, she's miserable and why she is in a people oriented business I have no idea because she obviously hates all humans) Anyway - go through all this crap because for some INSANE reason, whatever soups they will have on any day are excellent. From She-crab to Italian Wedding to Minestrone to Chicken Noodle - this stuff doesn't come from a can. Funny the rest of the menu is typical bar food, fried stuff, burgers, cheese steaks and the like all priced very affordably. Go on, be brave, get some darn good soup!!!!!

I forgot to mention that my mother makes the best chicken soup in the world!! When I am sick, even now in my thirties and living away from home (ok only 10 minutes away) my mom makes it for me - real homemade chicken soup and she puts lemon in it and escarole and depending on what I want matzah balls or dumplings - both to die for. I make a few killer dishes myself - but nothing tastes like mom's soup!!! Mmm, I want some now!!

We just returned from Montreal. When we ate at Garcon! on Sherbrooke St., we had a lobster bisque for an "amuse-bouche", a little portion of flavorful food served between courses. It tasted like pure essence of lobster. I could not get the recipe but will remember the soup forever. No meat, just essence. But very satisfying. And it should have been, for what we paid for dinner. (But then, Montreal is very expensive.) Doesn't matter, I went to eat

My roommate in Boston would always make the best white bean and ham soup right after Easter wqith the leftover ham and use the ham bone to give the soup more flavor. One of the most comforting dishes I've ever had. The Hotal Bellweather in Bellingham, Washington had the best clam chowder I've tasted. Lots of clams, potato, bacon, cream, and chives.

I really enjoy the minestrone at Carrabba's. It has more cabbage than I usually think of in Minestron but that's why I like it!

I have been fortunate enough to sample a pretty good variety of soups in a lot of good restaurants and in the homes of some very good cooks. I do soups pretty well myself if I do say so. However, the hands down winner for best soup? No question for me...the Fish Chowder from the No Name in Boston. Thirty years ago, when we had tired of the China Pearl and Bob Lee's Islander there was nothing better than a short trip to the No Name for the best Fish Chowder ever. At the time it was little more than a lunch counter for the fishermen that happened to be open all night. Great chowder served with a big chunk of bread and a slab of butter. All you could do to eat it all.

Personal best- Vegetable beef or split pea with ham.
Canned- Campbell's Pepperpot
