I tried one tonight. This was the result.
Taken with my HTC One phone
The soup was good, but nothing like what I had at Ladder 11. So the search is still one.
Here's the link to the soup recipe I used, very some variation. I also used 1 cup of tomato juice; 2 cups of shredded cabbage and 2 Tablespoons of sugar. Gary loved it; I liked it and Alex said "this is not for me".
