I can't understand the attraction of this guy and his restaurants.

        Nazis and anything always has a tie...Nazis were generally slightly right of Gengis Khan.

        The soup Nazi is a nut onto himself. Wrong bread choice?...OUT!!!! No change?????!!!!!!OUT!!!!!Not moving in a good order???!!!OUT!!

        He's a nut case but sure can cook soup!!!

          One of those "I remember when" posts. I was first introduced to the "Soup N" in 1988 or '89, well before Seinfeld. People at my work (Channel 13-PBS) raved over the soup, but many were banished for not adhering to the rules. We actually did briefly call him the Soup Nazi until we discovered he was from Israel - definitely NOT a kosher title. We then dubbed it "Angry Soup" and referenced the "Angry Soup Man." And when he closed for the Summer we said he'd gone on vacation to Hell.

          Following the rules was one thing, but actually geting in good with him was another. One Production Assistant in our department managed to get his attention. Once he'd found out that Jess had lived on kibbutz in Israel, Jess could do no wrong. Jess pretty much had his lunches paid for him afterwards, as most people were willing to pay him to go get soup rather than deal with the potential wrath and embarrasment.

          The soups were delicious then, and if you were good and got your fruit and bread (his choice) it was one of the better lunch values in the area. But, they all have the same base, and after a while I found the seafood bisque tasted like the chicken noodle and I couldn't eat any more.

As a matter of fact, he would not make it to the next customer. All that wonderful soup would get poured into a dark smelly body cavity and then corked with his head. Here, one NEVER belittles another in public without consequence.

                    Well, as a soup fanatic, I was interested in giving this a try so just a tip. Order 5 containers of soup to get the most bang for the buck on their shipping. It defaults to $9.95 for up to 5 containers (so, shipping for one container of soup is $9.95..and $9.95 is also the cost for shipping 5...then it moves to $19.95).


                    Either way it is a bit high for shipping but will report back on the soup ;-)

                      So your entire order cost what? (Never mind, I already know...)

                      No soup is that good.

                        About $10 a bowl? C'mon guy...it's hard to get toast at the Marriot in any major city for less than that.

                        Is $10 a bowl high? Yes. But!:

                        1) making good soup can get expensive.

                        2) shipping, at $2.00 per container, is not horrible.

                        3) it might be real good soup.

                        4) see the marriot statement above


                        want me to send you a container? (i ordered one of each..i'll send you any one except the seafood chowder - chowders are my favorite).

                        no cost to you...just post a review of the soup after you give it a try so i'll know if I should order more.
