The Great Foobooz Soup Hunt

Pumpkin Soup

Pretty much everybody here at Foobooz World HQ (and everyone among the wider Philly mag team) is walking around with a case of the sniffles right now. As such, talk has turned to where in the city everyone goes for their favorite bowls of soup.

But out of these many conversations has come a depressing realization: In a city as broad, diverse and food-focused as Philadelphia is, we have a serious lack of truly great soup. I mean, yeah. There are places to get ramen. And a couple places to go for decent bowls of chicken soup. But where are the true soup savants in this town? The cooks for whom soup-making is not just an afterthought, but a true calling?

So with the weather turning chilly and the skies going gray, we’ve decided to turn to you, the Foobooz community. Where do you guys go when you’ve got an itch that only a really great bowl of soup can scratch?

Let us know in the comments. And please, for those of us who are stuck at our desks and living vicariously through you, don’t spare any details.
