Although we’re days away from officially being able to say it’s spring, soup season is still in full effect. Especially in NYC where it’s rumored it’s supposed to snow this weekend (ugh).
There’s something amazing about soup, like it’s some sort of medicine. That salty, steamy broth that coats every bone in your body is completely unparalleled, and don’t even get us started on the delicious goodness you put inside the soup. Noodles, meat, veggies–you name it.
Manhattanites: If you’re still scouring for the perfect soup to satisfy your hunger pangs in these particularly chilly days, we’ve rounded up some seriously delicious eats in the Big Apple:
1. Akamaru Modern Ramen at Ippudo
Homemade noodles, pork, cabbage, kikurage mushrooms, scallions, and a soft boiled egg float perfectly on top of the milky tonkotsu broth. It’s finished off with a dollop of spicy miso paste that pairs effortlessly with the rest of the dish.
2. Oyster Pan Roast at Grand Central Oyster Bar
A cream-based broth with butter, Worcestershire sauce, and paprika is accompanied by a slice of white bread and six Bluepoint oysters.
3. Lobster Bisque at Ed’s Lobster Bar
What makes a good lobster bisque? How about generous portions of lobster and a thick, creamy, salty-sweet broth that makes your mouth water just thinking about it. We’ve found that exact bisque at Ed’s, where they definitely don’t scrimp on the lobster.
4. Matzo Ball Soup at Ben’s Kosher Deli
Cure a cold and a case of the munchies with this deliciously perfect and authentic matzo ball soup. You can’t get much closer to Bubbie’s than this.
5. Chicken Tortilla Avocado Soup at Shopsin
Combine all the spicy, meaty goodness of a chicken tortilla and make it into a soup–that’s what Shopsin’s done, along with some roasted cabbage for a sweet addition to the must-have treat.
