If you missed this little news story this week you wouldn’t be able to cry in your soup. Yes, the Soup Nazi is reopening after a six year hiatus.
When I lived in NYC (The City for all you NYers) my apartment was 14 blocks away from the Soup Nazi. After seeing him on Seinfeld, I went to check out this soup. The line was around the block. It was freezing. It took an hour to get to the front. Unlike the Seinfeld episode that made this shop famous, the real one has no indoors. There was no respite from the cold. No soup could be worth this.
Except . . .
His soup was one of the most wonderful food experiences of my life. I went in shocked at how anyone could charge so much for soup. After eating it I sat in disbelief that he charges so little.
A few months ago I wrote that I would never wait 2 hours for a table at PF Changs. But I gladly went back over and over again to wait my hour for soup.
What would you gladly wait an hour for?
