Go here, order the Hungarian Mushroom Soup, and relax into the blended comfort. This creamy, savory, perfectly-pungent soup is so good you’ll be hard pressed to visit without getting at least a cup, along with whatever else you’re ordering. They also have a great matzoh soup, an always-kid-friendly chicken noodle soup, AND a rotating soup of the day. (But seriously, don’t skip the Hungarian Mushroom).
