Where to find real soup in Seattle

Chris | Jan 7, 2004 02:25 AM

Soup. Real soup. Thick rich brothy herby anything but Asian soup is what I am looking for. My soul in search of soup was teased by Penelope Corcoran’s headline. “Bring on the steaming bowls: Seattle's a great place to thaw”. Sadly her article did not help me in my continual search for good soup but instead revolved around the ubiquitous clear chicken stock with noodles and (pick your meat) and (pick your veggie). I am pho’d and won ton'd out. Well made soul satisfying stick-to-your-ribs soup is hard to come by. The best I have found is the Hill Top Ale House on Queen Anne which offers an excellent rotation of creative and comforting soups.
Restaurants seem to treat soup as an afterthought, one that usually involves a can opener and a tin of cream of whatever.
This is Seattle! It’s cold, it’s wet, it’s SOUP COUNTRY! My search continues. Please help.
