Soup Junkie (SF FiDi)

Read a tip about this new hole in the wall on Market St (388, between Davis and Front). This article dismissed it as just another soup place in the FiDi, but the fact is that the neighborhood is pathetically lacking in good Chinese or Vietnamese noodle soups. Also: gourmet banh mi and Dynamo donuts. What's not to like?

I've never had one of the famous/infamous Dynamo donuts, so I stopped in this morning and out of the half-dozen varieties picked up a maple bacon apple and a caramel fleur de sel. They hit .500: the caramel was slightly more burnt than I felt was appealing and there was something in the donut itself that clashed with the caramel. Big thumbs up on the maple bacon, though (the apple was MIA), with a great balance of meaty umami, salt and sugar. What really made my morning was the guy walking past me who did a triple take when he saw my donuts, which were in a clear plastic box.

Will be back to try the lunch offering soon.
