I realize this covers a large area, and many neighbourhoods, but I'd like a list for future reference. Any price point, eat-in/take-out & any type of cuisine is fine with me.
This is what I've got so far:
laksa at Laut
borscht or mushroom barley at B & H http://www.menupages.com/restaurants/...
borscht at Yonah Shimmel's - is it worth it? I realize Shimmel's is a knishery that has been panned
frequently on this Board, but I read a rec for their borscht on another board, so I thought I'd keep it on the list.
borscht or mushroom barley at Little Poland
borscht at the Stage Restaurant
borscht at Ukrainian East Village Restaurant
borscht at Streecha on the weekend
cabbage borscht with flanken at Olive Tree
lentil soup at Think Coffee
lentil soup at City Bakery
lentil soup at Bereket
take-out lentil soup at Kalustyan's
khao soi gai at Regional Thai Taste
French Onion at Artisanal
Matzo Ball soup at 2nd Ave Deli
Hot & Sour at Congee Village
one of the various Hot & Sours offered at Xe Lua
various soups at Shopsin's General Store- should I bother? Read an earlier soup-focused thread recommending the chicken tortilla avocado soup and the Peruvian shrimp corn chowder. Realize CHs seem to either love or hate Shopsin's General Store.
soup at Cafe Medina- Turkish wedding soup, tortilla soup & African chicken peanut, which might be daily specials, so selection would vary depending on the day
how is the parihuela at Mancora lately? Mancora hasn't been mentioned on the Board in a long time.
Which would you take off the list? Which soups would you add?
Thanks for any of your input!
