I am a soup kind of person. My favorite all time comfort foods. My favorite for that is Nate n' Al's lima bean soup, and mushroom barley. The chicken soup is ok also. For that blow your mind kind of good soup I have to say is Flora Falafel, you can't get anymore hole in the wall and less likely to find it, but its there. They have 3-4 soups freshly made soups a day that change on a regular basis. I usually don't care for vegetable soups because they are usually floating in tomato water.
Flora Falafel's vegetable soup is amazing, its so flavorful and has a yellowish kind of creamy consistency almost like a creamy butternut squash soup, but its not. It has pieces of potato and zuchini and carrots and lots of various vegetables. It has garbanzo beans and lots of fresh dill. They also sell the best pita bread I have had in Los Angeles, the real deal like in the middle east. I find most of the pita breads here to be thin and wimpy. Their pita bread is thick and soft inside and chargrilled outside. It's a delicious combo with the soup. The place has a really homey kind of feel. They serve you on mismatched plates that the owner Rudy says he brought all the way from Israel to make the place even more authentic. What can I say, you go to try it!
