We have made plenty of lists in the past, and certainly soup has been a big draw for the cold, wintery months such as we are experiencing. One of our favorite soups comes from King’s Noodles (read about that place here). There are plenty of mainstays in Dallas such as the mushroom soup at The Grape, a recipe that will not, and should not ever leave that menu. Other perennials include the marshmallow soup at Rise No. 1 which is actually a rich tomato soup with pillows of roasted goat cheese. Make a better soup and the world will beat down your door, especially when it is 25 degrees in Dallas.
Today we offer a list of some recent favorites. You will want to check these out in your travels about town this week.
Jasper’s in Plano throws down a few mean soups each day, one changes daily, the other is this beautiful grilled chicken-creamy masa soup with roasted corn, black beans and jalapeño jack. Simply delicious, and you can try your hand at home with the recipe that chef Kent Rathbun offers. It is always best to leave the work to the professional as this is a lengthy process.
Jammed packed with seafood swimming in a lush broth, the bouillabaisse is the weekly special currently running at Dive Coastal. You can nab a cup or bowl, either pairs nicely with the classic Baja fish tacos. You will find this tiny seafood restaurant hidden in Snider Plaza across from SMU. They also deliver lunches!
A huge favorite is the hot and sour soup at First Chinese BBQ in Richardson. This soup comes piping hot table side at a temperature that is molten hot. It is also mammoth in size and can make several meals for one, and plenty to share with friends. Also, the shrimp wonton soup is equally massive and quite good. The soup list here is extensive.
There are plenty of hot soups to be found at the Super H Mart in Carrollton. This is a hot pot we sampled one blustery afternoon. Smooth and power packed with flavor. Don’t miss the dumpling bar. Super H is a great chow around spot where you can dine with great variety in their kicked up food court.
Hatties in Bishop Arts makes a creamy bowl of tomato soup that comes with a side of grilled cheese. Need we say more?
Stay warm, Dallas.
