When some of us come down with a case of the sniffles, a steaming bowl of chicken noodle soup can come to the rescue. AVinSF wasn't feeling well recently, and several hounds prescribed a number of San Francisco–based soup dispensaries that serve curative bowls of warm, chicken-flavored goodness.
mlutsky says St. Francis Fountain's chicken soup is the ultimate stress reliever, while pamf notes that Soup Freaks is in a new location across the street from its previous one on Mission Street in SOMA, so fans of its chicken soup are in luck.
Many hounds love the fresh, light pho ga—Vietnamese chicken noodle soup—at Turtle Tower, which now has three locations in the city. bigwheel042 prefers the Geary Street location, which is cleaner and cozier than the other two.
And in those "moments of real desperation," goldangl95 recommends soup from Whole Foods, which does the job, even if it requires a lot of doctoring to perk up the bland flavors.
