Soups in Austin

I had jaw surgery two weeks ago and now I am back up and ready to go out and about on the town. Problem is I am on a doctor ordered liquid only diet until the middle of October.

When it was time to go out to dinner with friends for the first time I rushed to the CH boards to see where to go. Lots of off hand mentions, but no soup only thread.

It was funny, I started calling some of my favorite places in town - but all had soup de jour. I didn't want to show up some place and find out all they had that night was cream of carrot.

Here is where I have been so far:

- Fonda San Miguel: Tortilla Soup
- Eastside Cafe: Chicken, Mushroom Artichoke
- Vivo: Tortilla Soup
- Sangra: White Bean and Prosciutto (this was a soup de jour, but it was a work lunch so I had no choice)
- Din Ho: Hot & Sour (I am headed here tonight)

So here it is. Where are the best soups in town?

And I am looking for permanent soup fixtures on the menu, no soup de jour. With one exception for any places like Eastside Cafe that has three soup choices a day - then you know one has to be good, and most likely all three are amazing. (Note, chunky soups are ok, I just request that they give me more broth than soup.)

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. No stone soup unturned.

PS: already hitting up Soup Peddler too, not to worry. :-)
