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

He need larger and more dramatic fonts when discussing soup and soup-like repasts.

I'm stopping for H&S soup on the way home.

I make borscht once a month. Delicious. And if you eat enough you will pee pink. Like a unicorn.

I can always judge a Chinese place on how good the H & S soup is. If its spectacular, so the rest of their food will be. If it blows tofu, then the rest of the food will. Here's my list of soups, favorite to least:

1. Tomato Bisque
2. Hot & Sour
3. French Onion
4. My own chili (restaurant chili blows beans)

I'm due for a crock of borscht. It will help with the diet project after indulgences in Chicago.


(I have never noticed any Pretty Pony Pink urine before. But I don't see pink worth a darn, anyway.)

I like to buy a couple of quarts of Hot & Sour Soup from the Chinese buffet, just so I can fill the containers with borscht for the freezer.

We don't ever make it ourselves. We just go to Mr. Chen's. I would be interested in a recipe as well.

There are many terrible attributes of the lowly cob. Not the least of them is that it makes you look like a doof.

Today was borscht day. I also roasted 4 bulbs of garlic then ate them with crackers. My wife likes it that I am too smelly for all the the gorgeous women who would otherwise find me hopelessly attractive.
