would have to put in a vote for the cream of mushroom at Pal's Cabin in WEst Orange New Jersey...silky , smooth ,a bit of beefy taste to temper the cream- its been rightly famous for years and years

The only memorable soups I have had (outside of my own) were the New England style conch chowder at the Pier House in Key West, and the red conch chowder at Monty Trainer's in Coconut Grove. Also, the Creole Onion soup at Commander's Palace in New Orleans.

I love a good french onion soup, but I cannot remember when I had one that was done very well.

I had some great she crab soup at Basnight's Lone Cedar near Kitty Hawk, NC. The crab meat was abundant and very sweet. It was super and the view was equally as good.

Best soup I ever had.

Got to agree with Sundancer....Basnight's Lone Cedar restaurant gets my vote for the best she crab soup....rich, hearty and full of delicious crab! I always make several trips there during visits to the Outer Banks, NC. for this soup + fabulous crab cakes!

In VA Beach, the Lynnhaven Fish House has some very tasty she crab soup as well.

I just got turned on to the wild rice soup at a local eatery here in Minot, ND.

A cream base, wild rice, teeny bit of celery, onion, carrot, and smoked duck. Finished, it's fairly thick, like a chowder. And the wild rice and duck fit eachother like a hand and glove. Very much a heavenly bowl of comfort food.

My dad's home canned Garden blend soup --- made from veggies from his garden. Which could be thickened to be put over rice or thinned to make into a soup w/ hamburger or left over beef pot roast. But sadly there is no more Garden Blend since he passed away a few yrs ago. The whole family was sad when we opened the last can of his Garden Blend after he died.

Great topic. The best soup in the world, for me, is Cullen Skink, a Scottish delicacy. Baxters do a canned version, but it's easy to make at home. All you need is haddock, onions, potatoes, cream/milk, a good stock and seasoning to include a bay leaf. Wonderful comfort food!

My father's French onion soup.

The artichoke soup at Duartes in Pescadero.

The curry chicken noodle soup at a Burmese restaurant in Oakland, Calif. (forgot the name; it may be defunct)

The laksa soup at the Singapore aiport.

And, not as good as the previous two, but close: the Malaysian curry noodle soup (with tofu) at Green Papaya in River Edge, N.J.

RE: The world's BEST soup ? 2008/11/09 14:11:36
Oh yeah ... the Burmese restaurant was Nan Yang, which is now in Rockridge. I can't testify that they still make curry chicken noodle soup, but from what I saw on the Web, it looks like the same place, formerly in Oakland.

Also, good Vietnamese pho ... again, some place in Oakland in the late '80s made it great.

Ah, Oakland -- the mecca of foodies on a budget (at least in the '80s when I lived there).

Ok -- one more. (Hey, I love soup!)

The pistou my husband and I had at a hole-in-the-wall restaurant somewhere in the south of France during our low-budget round-the-world trip in 1987-88. We had just retrieved a cache of letters from the local American Express office, and ate cheap soup and bread and drank rose wine while reading our letters from home. The memories ...

One of the old Sunset Magazine "best of" recipe books has a good recipe for pistou ... a soup that I never see at American restaurants. (Basically a chicken broth-and-vegetable soup with basil and gruyere cheese.)

My favorite clam chowder is from a company called Chincoteague Seafood Company. Clams are the first ingredient, and I just think they got the best tasting chowder.

I'm working hard to develop a delicious Philly Cheesesteak Chowder for my cheesesteak business.

All Asian soups work for me, but I lean to and can make a good Tom Ka Gai.

===I'm working hard to develop a delicious Philly Cheesesteak Chowder for my cheesesteak business.===

At one restaurant the sous chef made a real good cheeseburger soup that I have since made as a quick go-to soup. It's simplicity in execution was complimented by how good it tasted.

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.

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.

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 !

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.

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.
