A Hot Bowl of Soup at Chef Hsu

It’s cool and misty out and this weather almost always screams for soup to fend off the chill. I made a bodacious tank of home-made chicken noodle soup this week that will last me through the winter, but what really makes the cut this time of year is something spicy. And preferably with hand stretched noodles. There are a few great options in the area including the Beef Stew Noodle Soup at King’s Noodles, which is fantastic year round.

Another fantastic choice, also off the beaten path, is Chef Hsu located south of Royal Lane on Harry Hines just on the cusp of K Town.

Giving Chef Hsu a good study you might be disarmed by the giant Chinese buffet in the large front room. Dismiss this area regardless the time of day and insist on the smallish room to the left that is swarmed by mostly Korean-Americans. This is where you find the real menu.    Continue reading
