Of course cream of crab is first... and clam chowder is really just a sad substitute for cream of crab... but whatever. Hot and Sour a solid #2 in the soup world.

Cream of mushroom with shredded acadero cheese rules them all.

+7 on the clam chowder.

I've not had crab chiwder before so I don't know if J-B is right on that.

The tofu in H&S is wonderful.

I threw up a little in my mouth at the mention of cream of mushroom... but since you've recommended it I'm willing to give in another try.

Hmm... I could set a side a pint mason jar... but I'm not sure about shipping something perishable like that.

I don't know, but I agree.

There's a place near my office that will throw a couple of wontons in the H&S soup for me at no charge. Ohhh son I'm tellin ya...

Just like Chowder, Pho is in a class by itself.

If I were forced to put them in order...

1) Pho

2) Chowder

3) Hot and Sour
