For the fifth straight year, October is Dining Month on OnMilwaukee.com, presented by Concordia University. All month, we're stuffed with restaurant reviews, delectable features, chef profiles and unique articles on everything food, as well as the winners of our "Best of Dining 2011."
During Dining Month at OnMilwaukee.com, we reveal the results of our readers' poll for best restaurants, desserts, burgers, steaks ... all things dining in Milwaukee. It's hard, though, to cover everything with only 50 questions so sometimes, things have to get left out.
Soup, unfortunately, is one such category.
I love soup. Next to a properly prepared bacon cheeseburger, it is my favorite dish. It could be 80 degrees outside with humidity through the roof, and I'll have no problem sitting down in front of a piping hot bowl of chicken noodle.
Which brings me back to my original point: What's your favorite place for soup in Milwaukee?
Now I'll admit, no soup in town compares to my favorite soup: Oma's chicken and rice – a recipe I shared during Dining Month 2010 – but that doesn't stop me from enjoying what the city has to offer.
For my money, I've always enjoyed The Soup & Stock Market at the Milwaukee Public Market. It's definitely one of my favorites. I'll admit, I'm a little particular and prefer more filling than broth and the Market has just the right balance.
Those who know me are well-aware of my love for the food (among other things) at the Milwaukee Brat House, and in my humble opinion, the beer cheese soup there is one of the best in town.
Local chains have some good offerings, too. I know I'm not the only one with a soft spot for the neon green chicken-flavored noodle at George Webb. The chicken with wild rice at cousins is phenomenal when you're on-the-go and want something to go along with your sandwich. Culver's has a terrific beef vegetable offering.
The list goes on and on, but I'm curious to hear what you think. If you're a soup lover, what's your favorite and where do you get it here in Milwaukee?
