Miso soup from Doc Chey's—getting enough protein is challenging in my present state yet this soup came chock full of welcome and easy-to-swallow nuggets of tofu. Problem solved.
Chicken and coconut milk soup from Spice Market—if my throat were healed I'd love this soup, but it was way too spicy for me to eat it today without an intolerable burn on the cauterized parts of my throat! (But that was good news for Dean, who devoured the leftovers and loved every spoonful!)
Chicken vegetable from Alon's—very rich with meat, this soup has a comforting homemade quality. I also tried lentil with lemon and cumin from Alon's—an Egyptian recipe from owner Alon Balshan's mother, it was among my favorites.
Carrot ginger soup from Star Provisions—visually simple with complex taste; another favorite.
Seven Onion Soup from Salt Factory in Roswell—based on the description alone, I wouldn't have imagined how absolutely fabulous this soup is. Definitely the most pleasant surprise and my No. 1 favorite of the day, from a restaurant that I'd never heard of previously but now look forward to visiting once healed! This soul-satisfying, thick, rich soup is somehow like French Onion yet more sublime. Decadent and satisfying, it's served topped with toasted croutons and shaved manchego cheese and chive oil (a puree of chive, garlic and olive oil).
Now that it's officially fall and the weather is getting cooler here in Atlanta, could the timing of this research project be more perfect!!?!!
