Pho Soup @ Pho Nomenon Noodle & Grill {516 Washington Street, Hoboken}

For anyone unfamiliar with Pho, it’s basically a Vietnamese noodle soup consisting of broth, rice noodles, a few herbs, and meat, usually chicken or beef. So if you’re looking for a spot that has options, these guys have every type of Pho imaginable! Along with traditional Vietnamese style foods, Pho Nomenon offers a variety of mixed veggies, steamed chicken, beef meatball, shrimp, steak, tripe, grilled pork, brisket or even just plain rice noodle Pho… literally we’ll take one of each please. Opt for the Pho Bo Vien… because well, beef meatballs, of course.  

White Bean and Tomato Cream Soup @ Cucharamama {233 Clinton Street, Hoboken}

Chicken noodle soup is great, but Cucharamama’s traditional South American-style soups take it up a notch. With flavor on FLEEK, these soups are sure to keep you coming back on the regular. Between their incredible empanadas, pizzas, and traditional dinner items, it’s easy for the soups section to get lost. Their Crema de Frijoles Blancos y Tomate soup is a white bean and tomato cream soup with cheese and onion empanadas while their Sango de Choclo y Camarones con Aji de Choclo soup is a creamy corn, plantain, and shrimp soup with cheese and onion empanadas.

Italian Wedding Soup @ Frankie and Ava’s Italian Eatery {208 Washington Street, Hoboken}  

When you go to Frankie and Ava’s, the go-to order is typically one of their DELISH wrap, sandwich, or panini options. However to get through the rest of any chilly fall months upcoming winter months, take a closer look at their homemade soup options. With daily specials, their soup selection includes all of the Italian favorites – tortellini and spinach, Italian wedding, lentil, split pea and then chili on the weekends. Uhh, we’ll take one of each, please.

Don’t let “juiced” in the name scare you away… while their juices are amazing, their soups are even more on point. These guys offer a full menu of organic and locally-farmed juices and food and just so happens to be the ONLY spot in Hoboken serving all-organic soups. With raw, vegan, gluten-free options, everything is made on the premises with local, by locals, for locals {doesn’t get much better than that!}. Not only are their soups vegan and organic, but they are also delicious and during the cold months of winter, they’re exactly what the doctor ordered.

Broccoli Cheddar @ Panera Bread {310 Washington Street, Hoboken}  

While Panera Bread might not be indigenous to Hoboken, it would be morally wrong to leave them out of any soup roundups. While everything you order from Panera is the bomb.com, their soups really can do no wrong. From classic fav’s to low-fat options, you’re pretty much guaranteed to find a soup to cure a cold or keep you warm. A classic go-to is the low-fat vegetarian garden vegetable soup with pesto, but when one is looking to indulge a little, go for the broccoli cheddar soup.

Chicken Avgolemono Soup @ Greek Town {86 Garden Street}

If you’re craving a good, hearty soup — run, don’t walk over to Greek Town {or call for delivery} for their chicken avgolemono soup. Think of mom’s chicken soup with a Greek twist {unless you’re already Greek… #winning}. This creamy, lemony soup is the definition of comfort food and not to mention their portion sizes are HUGE.

Just a few of our favorite soup options in the area. Where is your favorite spot to grab a bowl of warm, hearty deliciousness?

When she’s not eating or researching the menus of new restaurants, you can find her either running along the waterfront, taking a stroll along Washington St. or working in the city as a publicist.
