Soup Tips From A Fanatical Soup Chef

1. The most famous soup on earth, Chicken Noodle Soup, seems to be the soup most commonly messed-up. At Max’s Deli, we make a clear chicken broth with bones, skinny egg noodles, topped with big chunks of chicken, carrot and celery.

Tip: Don’t Mess with a Classic.

2. Kreplach, a meat filled dumpling, is Jewish Comfort Food. It’s common in many cultures. In Italy, they call it Ravioli. In Poland, they call it Pierogi. In China, they call it Wonton. Kreplach Soup is the defining flavor of any Jewish Deli.

Tip: Different Day, Same Deliciousness.

3. Without a doubt, all winter long, Matzo Ball Soup rules the Jewish Food Kingdom. At Max’s Deli, we make them the size of baseballs and sprinkle in a touch of dill.

Tip: Dill puts the Oy in Vey.

4. The only difference between my Cream of Mushroom Soup and world renowned Tru Restaurant’s Cream of Mushroom Soup is the price tag. We both use Shiitake and Crimini Mushrooms, quality white wine, fresh thyme and then destroy all calorie counts with heavy whipping cream.

Tip: Don’t Count Calories, Enjoy ‘Em.

5. What makes our Roasted Butternut Squash Soup so special? Simplicity: by whipping in a blender and straining through cheese cloth, we achieve an epic flavor and smooth consistency.

Tip: K.I.S.S.S. (Keep It Simple Stupid…Seriously)

    in order of preference: matzoh ball soup w/noodles, split pea, cream of mushroom, vegetable beef. No soups in Arizona as good as Max’s!!!

  2. Andy says:

    Lobster bisque-Cream of Mushroom-Chicken Noodle-Beef Barley. This is much more fun than politics.

  3. Babs says:

    In all seriousness I like to eat my turkey pastrami without arguing the latest nonsense we’re fed. I’ll get up there later in the week I have something in Lake Forest Saturday. There’s a bar called the Lantern. Good place but the food is atrocious. Ever been? There’s another Jewish deli in Naperville called Schmaltzs it’s not half bad. Also if you want 100% Kosher Srulies in Skokie is a customer of mine his restaurant is super orthodox. Its $12 for a turkey sandwich. He supplies Yeshiva schools with their daily lunches.
