5 Things You Need To Eat This Week: Fall Soup Edition

Welcome to 5 Things You Need to Eat This Week, a column that highlights some of the most delicious dishes and some of the coolest locations to dine in Dallas County, Collin County, and sometimes, Denton County.

At the moment, I am unsure if this will be a weekly column, or if I will just post at random – after I have I’ve enjoyed some amazing food in an equally amazing atmosphere.

As always, if you have a dish or location suggestion for me, please use the contact form to let me know.

Now, let’s dig in…

Beef Pho, Pho Is For Lovers – On Greenville Avenue

Pho is great any time of the year. But this flavorful soup packed with beef, along with rice noodles, sprouts, basil, jalapeno, and lime really warms you up from the inside, out.

Sweet Potato Soup, DISH – Preston Hollow

Sweet potato soup paired with crème fraiche, herb oil, and a cornbread crouton, makes for a perfect fall lunch or light dinner. You can only find this delicious, savory soup during the cooler months of the year, so hurry to DISH before it’s gone.

Hot & Sour Soup, Howard Wang’s China Grill – Preston Hollow

You can never go wrong with a steamy, spicy bowl of Hot & Sour Soup from Howard Wang’s. The ingredients are simple – chicken, tofu, bamboo shoots, wood ear mushroom, and egg in a comforting, richly flavored broth.
