Isn't soup amazing.
What's your favourite?
I just had moroccan chicken soup.
My favourite are Thai tasting ones, I make a lovely noodle, red pepper and chilli soup. I also love the mexican chicken tortilla from Eat.
I like them all, I've probably not thought of my actual favourite and will just this all the posts in this thread.
but i like these a lot:
watercress and stilton;
sweet potato and carrot with chilli oil;
cullen skink (though this is a faff to make and stinks the house - best eaten in a restaurant instead);
tom ka gai (thai chicken soup)
we do have quite a lot of soup threads on Dis, don't we?
I think I usually post after you saying that I am a tom yum man but generally don't find soups that great.
Usually an autumn/winter thread so perhaps we should be grateful for the variation.
i've had a really nice version of that but also an utterly inedible version that tasted of bile (i think my friend overdid the tom yum paste).
i've probably posted this in response to your response too.
I've probably told you abefore bout cooking it on a course in Chaing Mai, when I found myself and became the wonderfully enlightened Balonz that you see before you today.
Peace and harmony.
I mean by itself, not from a padded cell or anything.
my aunty is Vietnamese and hers is to die for.
but I'm not so I'll say I'm a fan of steak pho too.
but it's not raw as the stock, limes etc cooks it enough so that it becomes rare.
I always go for the steak. I'm not brave enough to try the tripe, flank etc as I just don't think it will be as nice and then I'll be all gutted and probably sob into my stock.
(with a roast beef and horseradish sandwich) and it was brilliant. Possibly my new favourite. I also love butternut squash soup, red pepper soup, heinz tomato sup, oh God, just every kind of soup really. Last night I had lobster bisque with bits of crab ravioli in it and it was unbelievably good :)
It was from my friend's restaurant in Manchester. It was SO good :)
(actualy, looking at this it seems it was a langoustine bisque. i could have SWORN it said lobster. Actually, i think the menu online is a bit out of date. I think I may have dementia).
like a mr whippy ice cream?
it does seem a bit risky though
from Tom's or Sam's Chop House in Manchester.
Doesn't it take two days to make?
the corned beef hash supposedly takes ten days!
Nothing better on a cold winters day. So, so nice.
These are my two favourite things on the menu at Sam's (the manchester plate is pretty good too though.......)
and then you can roll me out of there. I had a roast dinner at Sam's once and didn't eat again until the following evening.
haveing said that, soup isnt great is it? its fairly average food.
its like when people say "i had this AMAZING pizza!". did you? some bread with tomatoes on top huh? how exciting...
but he's right
how many people would choose pizza or soup as the "final meal"?
sometimes a soup can be amazing though. do you want a soup story? i don't want to tell you about the amazing cullen skink i had if it's going to be of no interest.
I have a particular fondness for all kinds of fish soup.
I thought you were better* than this, DiS.
is the true king of soups, all fishy and creamy and delicious, mmmm
i'm a fan of the classic broccoli and stilton and a good french onion too though
The Covent Garden one is good, and cheap in Tesco at the moment, so I've stocked up.
If you're ever in Oxford I'd recommend getting it at Luna Caprese, it's delicious.
chicken soup or carrot n' coriander?
simple, but fucking lush
with the bread and the cheese and the whole lot.
Though I'm not really a soup fan. It's alright, I guess, but I wouldn't pick it over a sandwich.
That may have been said earlier in the thread but I couldn't be bothered to read it all.
