As the air gets colder in the Burgh', nothing tastes better than a hearty bowl of homemade soup. Pittsburgh has lots of places to get your soup on, and they taste almost as good as your mom's! Take the chill out of winter this season by trying one or more of these great soups and warm up with Pittsburgh's hot food scene!
Soups to try: Kartoffelsuppe - homemade creamy potato soup with vegetables and smoked bacon and Gulaschsuppe - homemade Hungarian goulash with rich beef, paprika and potatoes. Both are delicious!
Deli on Butler Street, Lawrenceville
Soups to try: Split pea, italian wedding, cream of chicken. You can't go wrong here!
Smiling Banana Leaf, Highland Park
Soups to try: Tom yum - spicy and sour lemongrass, and tom kha - creamy coconut milk, mushroom, cabbage, carrot and spinach. Another of my favorites is the glass noodle with cabbage in a clear broth.
Thai Me Up, Southside Flats
Soups to try: Coconut galangal soup - chicken or vegetables in lemongrass and galangal coconut broth. Also try the thai style chicken noodle, and the spicy dill soup with beef (om nue) which is beef soup with herbs and spices topped with dill.
