Around this time of year, when we're craving comfort food, soup is so much better than a Shake Shack burger. It's a meal in a bowl, it's steaming hot, it's restorative, and it's often cheap to boot. There's good borscht, split pea, and hot and sour to be had in this town, but we decided to restrain ourselves, giving you our favorite soups in seven clear categories: ramen, pho, pan roast, butternut squash (our seasonal pick), matzo ball, tomato, and clam chowder (Manhattan, of course). And, if you noticed the obvious absence of chicken noodle, it's no mistake—we just haven't found one right here in NYC proper that blows our minds. If you have, be sure to let us in on your findings…our bowl awaits!
Check out seven super tasty soups to keep you warm all winter long.
