Best Lentil Soup EVAR


For days now I’ve been hearing that the single greatest bowl of lentil soup awaits mere blocks from where I’ve been sleeping at Taste of Lebanon (1509 W. Foster) and today I decided I’d heard enough and had to try this for myself. I’ve had my fair share of lentil soup in the past and am pretty sure I have a good idea what’s good and what isn’t. So I got a bowl of it. A bowl that costs $1.79. Holy. Fucking. Crap. It seriously was the best lentil soup in the history of lentil soup, and maybe even soup in general. Their other stuff, falafel, grape leaves, hummus, etc were all fantastic too but the soup… whoah. I’m really not going to be happy about leaving that when I go back to LA next week.

    LOVE the taste of Lebanon. I had to move to Phoenix and one of the saddest things was knowing that my saturday meal of lamb shawarma and soup was ending.

    I’ve watched the owner’s sons grow up over the last 7 years. That place is a little encapsulation of the American dream in my book.

    they’ve got the best falafel in Chicago as well…

    I like Taste of Lebanon but finding parking in the area to be a putoff. The soup at the highly-underrated Larsa’s up in Skokie is indisputably the best bowl I have ever eaten and I don’t even LIKE lentils.
