1) L’Thai Organic Cuisine

Dining critic Meridith Ford Goldman says, “L’Thai’s tom-kha is a silken bowl of sweet-yet-sour soup layered with the flavors of broth and coconut milk and peppered with bright cilantro, all highlighted by unimaginably fresh tofu. One sip, and you won’t need Calgon to take you away.”

It’s hard to give anyone the nod over Souper Jenny, but Mitch’s crew over at MetroFresh has some of the most delicious soups I’ve ever had! I believe they have a lot of the same recipe’s, so it may be a toss up. But at the end of the day, when I want delicious soup in Atlanta, I head straight to MetroFresh!!

If I’m craving soup, I head over to Buford Hwy and have some pho at Pho Bac. If I’m with friends, a trip to Mini Hot Pot (across from Pho Bac) is awesome! Its like the personal fondue version of soup. Each seat has a hot plate for the broth to heat up and plates of veggies, seafood and meats come on the side. You drop in what you want, add seasonings or sauces if you prefer, and enjoy! So fun and delicious!

The Beer Cheese Soup at Norman’s Landing restaurant across from The Avenue on Peachtree Parkway- Exit 13 and GA 400) BUT they only serve it on Fridays. Souper Jenny gets the nod all other days of the week! :)

I get both daily menus form MetroFresh and Souper Jenny and many days I’m torn. They are both GREAT!

The beer cheese soup at the newly reopened 57th Fighter Group Restaurant is always a favorite.

Jake’s Homemade Chicken Soup at Picnic in the Irwin Street Market. Quite possibly even better than mom used to make!

It was once a special at Osteria in the Highlands, Chicken and Dumpling Soup… please bring it back!

The chicken/coconut soup at Taste of Thai in Douglasville.
Every bit as good as Surin of Thailand’s in the Highlands.

The Krissy Soup at Rainbow Natural Foods. Their Mulligatawny is really good and their Senate Navy Bean. But Krissy is the best – broccoli, celery, and squash.

The Chicken Soup at Taxco on Roswell Rd is the best mexican style chicken soup in Atlanta. Been consistently good for over a decade

The Guiness inspired french onion soup at Parker’s on Ponce is some of the best soup I have ever had. Also, their daily specials are always good.

For me it’s a toss up between the pho at What the Pho in Duluth and shrimp corn chowder at Taqueria del Sol.

My vote is for the chicken coconut soup at Doc Chey’s Noodle House. Yum ! Yum! Second choice is the tomato basil bisque at Urban Flats at the Avenue Webb Gin near Snellville. Perfect blend of tomato,garlic, herbs, and cream.

The seafood soup at El Cancun on Windy Hill in Marietta. Hole in the wall establishment, but like the trend the food is out of this world.

The Lobster Bisque at Montana’s Bar and Grill on Hwy 9 in Milton is awesome. The soup of the day varies but when they have the Lobster Bisque it sells out.

Pho Dai Loi #2 on Buford highway keeps me coming back for more.

The cream of chicken and potato soup at the Downwind Restaurant at Dekalb Peachtree Airport is wonderful. Actually, they have a soup of the day and they all are good!

The roasted corn soup at Livingston in The Georgian Terrace is pretty special. I ordered it by default and have been back for it 3 times. The best I’ve had…

57th Fighter Groups’ Beer Cheese soup cannot get any better and has been the same way for at least the 25 years I Have been enjoying it! Don’t go there and not try it!

Arizona’s Restaurant at Stonecrest Mall has the most delicious potatoe soup you will find anywhere. Eat it loaded with bacon bits, cheese of course and chives. It is scrumptous!

Twist at Phipps has unvbelievably good soup and they change it every day. The soup can be simple or exotic, but always interesting and full of flavor!

Tom Ka Kai at Flavors of Thailand in Jonesboro.With shrimp instead of chicken, request it with extra heat.

The Seafood Bisque at Marietta Diner. Great flavor, and lots of seafood. Creamy and delicious! Only on weekends, and it always sells out! I moved away, and would still drive 50 miles just to eat some.

Souper Jenny should obviously win!

The loaded baked potato soup from Cherokee Cattle Company on the Canton Highway in Marietta is to die for! It is cream based with chunks of potato and served with real bacon bits, green onion, and cheese on top. The shrimp corn chowder @ TDS comes in a close 2nd…


November 16th, 2009

The shrimp corn chowder & the chicken tortilla soup are both excellent at all three locations of Taqueria Los Hermanos. I usually go to the one near Sugarloaf Pkwy and Cruse Rd.

Try the soup at Lotta Frutta-they have a different delicious soup everyday-they specialize in South American soups that are unusual and delicious! It on Auburn Ave. at Glen Iris.

Senoia Coffee Roasters in Senoia has a mushroom & brie that makes a drive to the burbs well worthwhile!

Sorry, guys. No Thai restaurant in ATL has better Tom Ka (coconut chicken) soup than Little Bangkok on Cheshire Bridge Rd. Not Surin, not Taste of Thai, and not Doc Chey’s Thai-wannabe.

Shrimp Corn Chowder @ Taqueria Del Sol

METROFRESH! It’s great to have fresh or to buy by the pint so you can have it for lunch the next day!
