Addison’s Soup Roundup

Well, the weather outside might be frightful, maybe. Because honestly who knows which season we are going to wake up to or how many seasons we will experience during the day? Nonetheless, we are in the middle of winter, and wintertime calls for hot and delicious soups. Warm chicken noodle soup or some spicy ramen, nothing hits the spot quite like a bowl of hot soup for these freezing weather days.

It’s no wonder why January is celebrated as National Soup Month. The frigid temperatures, the snow, the ice, and the rain all point to searching for some delicious soups to keep us warm.


Let’s start out with some of the classics. From chicken noodle soup to beef and vegetable soups and everything in between!


McAlister’s Country Potato Soup hits the spot every time. Tasty potatoes, onions, bacon, chives, and cheese come together for a hearty delicious soup. Of course, we need to include their delicious Chili. Made with lots of beef, it’s a classic hearty meal for these cold wintry days.


Over at the Village on the Parkway, try Lazy Dog’s Chicken Tortilla soup, topped with cheddar cheese and hand-cut tortilla strips and you can never go wrong with some avocado on top. From the appetizer menu at Yard House, the Tomato Bisque hits the spot every time.

Warm up with some delicious Gumbo for National Soup Month in Addison.

One of my all-time favorites is the gumbo at Nate’s Seafood and Steakhouse. The official state cuisine of Louisiana, gumbo is a household favorite and Nate’s is our favorite place for it. Whether you get Seafood Gumbo, Creole Gumbo, Chicken and Sausage Gumbo, or Combination Gumbo, Nate’s gumbo will knock your socks off. We cannot forget to mention their Crawfish or Shrimp and Crab Etouffee, after all, Nate’s is THE spot for fresh crawfish!


Looking for some Latin flavor? Gloria’s Latin Cuisine has you covered with their Mariscada, “Our famous seafood soup made with shrimp, scallops, red snapper, mussels, lobster tail, and vegetables.” For a classic Latin chicken soup try their Sopa de Pollo, hearty chicken with vegetables and rice! Let’s not forget their Chicken Tortilla Soup! Made with chicken, vegetables, Chile ancho, tortilla strips, and Monterey Jack cheese, and topped with cilantro and diced avocado.


Add some spice to your National Soup Month celebration with Best Thai’s Tom Yum or Tom Kha soups. The Tom Yum soup is a “spicy hot and sour soup with mushrooms, tomatoes, lemon grass lime juice, fresh chili.” The Tom Kha is a spicy coconut soup with mushrooms, lemon grass, lime juice, and fresh chili. Both are packed with flavor and spice and both will have you coming back for more.


For a different but very satisfying dining experience, visit Pho Que Huong on Belt Line and Inwood. If you have not had Pho yet, it’s a Vietnamese soup made with broth, rice noodles, herbs, and usually a protein like chicken or beef. At Pho Que Huong you have your pick from lots of different options and all of which come with a side of sprouts, jalapeño, and lime. Let me just run down some of the menu choices: Wonton noodles, chicken and shrimp noodles, Bangkok Rice noodles, curry chicken rice, spicy round steak rice, spicy seafood rice and veggies, and tofu rice noodle soup just to name a few!


Take your date out for a beautiful night and an amazing dinner at Antonio Ristorante in Addison Circle. While their menu is full of incredible dishes, don’t skip over their Minestrone and make sure to ask for their ‘Zuppa Del Giorno’ or Soup of the Day. Always fresh and always delicious.
