El Lay’s Best Soups
The Long Beach Press-Telegram published a story about the best soups to be found in the L.A. region. In the category of matzo ball soup, while acknowledging the quality of Canter’s and Langer’s versions, they proclaim the superiority of Brent’s Deli‘s chicken soup with the softball-sized, schmaltz-impregnated matzo meal dumplings. Without the matzo balls, though, they say El Nopal‘s deceptively plain-looking Oaxacan chicken soup is tops with its rich, earthy flavors. Read the story to see their choices for best French onion, pozole, beef noodle, clam chowder, pho, fish stew, and vegetarian soups.
