Seattle here.  Gotta go with the traditional.  A big bowl of Duke's chowder.  I'm hungry just thinking about it.

For Red Dwarf fans, Gazpacho Soup Day occurred just 4 days ago - the article's timely, I guess.

Meh. They're OK. The chowder I want, I can't get any more - Rocky Point clam chowder. Lots of knock-off recipes, but the real thing is just a fading memory.

I would kill a man for even mediocre pho right now

/Does mediocre pho even exist?

The high number of Vietnamese and Vietnamese-Americans in the Houston area has given the region some sweet pho restaurants. Sure, some aren't that great, but we have some great noodle joints overall.

We have some good representation from the other Asian countries too. Thanks to hurricanes, the Louisiana transplants and fresh seafood access gives us some good gumbo if you can't make it yourself.

You've never had it? Holy hell, the place I used to get it at made the broth effing perfect. Just spicy enough to the point of "ok, that hurts a bit but fark it it's too tasty to stop". Broth that you want to sip from a cup. Wonderful stuff.

Goddammit now I'm hungry.

My regular pho place is like 30 miles away, but their goddamn broth is worthy of bathing in. Reading the few recipes I did for Cham pong makes me want to find a place that has it. I know it will not be an easy or nearby journey, but I will make it happen, so help me baby Jesus.

Or maybe I'll just attempt to make it myself, but stuff like that is NEVER as good as a quality mom n pop restaurant

Yep, after a quick Google, any place I can see that has it (or theoretically would have it based on cuisine) is ann arbor or east Lansing, both a good 30-40 miles away each. I will make the journey, just not soonish.

I hate living here sometimes. At least we have some amazing middle eastern  cuisine options...

Yeah, it'd be super cool if I drove, but I don't. So my options are basically limited to a 5ish mile radius. We got the regular fast food shiat, a pretty good Thai place, and like 5 really shiatty Chinese places. Seriously, how do you fark up Chinese takeout? All of them somehow managed.

The menus & prices from some of the restaurants are... surprising. From the first entry, which is ridiculously priced, I'd expected similar ridiculous pricing from the rest of the list, and a few are indeed ridiculous. Most appear to be reasonably priced given their quantities & ingredients, though, which was pleasantly surprising. Here's the first 15, just out of sheer curiosity:

Bone Broth at Bone Kettle - $16-32 a bowl, dinner & brunch menu, depending on options
Caldo Verde at Natas Pastries - $7.50 a bowl (potatoes & kale), lunch. Their dinner soup, caldeirada, is $31.95 a bowl but it does feature lots of seafood
Chicken Paprikash Bowl at Parsnip - $12 a bowl, with either polenta or veggie barley pilaf
Boat Noodles at Pa Ord's Noodle - $10.50 a bowl, with either pork or beef & liver (tripe) [sic]
Mo-Tzo Ball Soup at Daughter's Deli - $8.25 a cup, classic broth, $12.00 a bowl, classic broth with chicken, served with bagel chips
Wonton Noodle Soup at Pine & Crane - $9 a bowl, with shrimp wontons & baby bok choy
French Onion Soup at Petit Trois - $13 a bowl, with gruyère & emmenthal
Knife-cut Noodles at Hyesung Noodle House - $12.99 a bowl, either chicken or original
Sul lung tang at Han Bat Sul Lung Tang - $14.50 a bowl, for beef tongue (no menu found; had to go from reviews)
Pho at Pho Filet - No clue. Few reviews, no site, no info.
Ash reshteh at Taste of Tehran - $8.50 a bowl
Avgolemono at Papa Cristo's Greek Grill - $4.99/7.99 for small/large, respectively
Cow Foot soup at Natraliart Jamaican - $6/8.25/13.25 for small/large/XL, respectively (don't confuse with their Cow Foot Stew entree)
Clam Chowder - Malibu Seafood ... - $4.95/8.95/14.95/10.95 for 8 oz/16 oz/32 oz/sourdough bread bowl, respectively
Siete mares at Gloria's Cafe - $25.50 a bowl

The restaurant selection is... odd, though. Some are high-end restaurants; others are hole-in-the-wall places. The reviews are scattered, from great to grimy, and the soups listed in the article - at least the first 15 or so - are likewise reviewed. This isn't a "best of" list, it would seem, but more of a "here's some soup I found in the LA area" list.

Czech Goulash, but probably more Hungarian:

(I prefer using smoked over sweet paprika)

We have a very large Czech population locally, and 'village' w/in our community with shops and restaurants. There used to be a place that had something similar to the above on the menu, and it was awesome. When sold, the new owners rebranded to being mostly american fare, with a focus on breakfast, sadly.

You're very welcome!

It's a simple, tasty dish -- and as you say, is perfect for a nice snowy day. I can imagine myself now, coming in for a nice, hot bowl after spending the morning snowblowing/shoveling snow.

Stay warm!

That's how Eater do. They're just "lists". Up until they closed the comments section, everyone would biatch and moan that they left the place they like off and how Eater sux wang because of it. To me, it's just a jumping off point.

Ant: Cumin lamb biang biang noodles with soup from Xi'an Noodle in the U District and in Westlake Center


I don't like Lamb, but would smang with a different protein, for sure. Ever had szechuan beef noodle soup? Seems like a similar, delicious dish.

There is more pho around me now than I've ever seen in this density.

But I think the only time I've had it was drunkenly grazing in the trailer parks of Austin.

///I'm only having gumbo out if it's at my exes relatives house in the swamps of Louisiana, or if i ever revisit Nolins.... I don't trust others to capture the spirit of that one.. when you get gumbo and you gotta Deshell the crabs yourself as your eating it ya know it's the good stuff.

Ant: Miss Stein: Seattle here.  Gotta go with the traditional.  A big bowl of Duke's chowder.  I'm hungry just thinking about it.

Also Seattle. Cumin lamb biang biang noodles with soup from Xi'an Noodle in the U District and in Westlake Center

*Sighs, and looks at the soups longingly.*  I'm allergic to both wheat and hot peppers (capsaicin), so must choose dishes accordingly.  Duke's makes a gluten-free chowder, and I'm so grateful for that because it's hard to find in the average seafood restaurant.
