Campbell’s Soup used to have a commercial in the 1990s where a snowman ate a hot bowl of soup. He melts and reveals it was really a child all along.

Maybe that ad resonates better somewhere where it isn’t 70 or 80 degrees in December. But, whatever your version of winter is, this is as good a time for a warm bowl of soup as it gets in Greater Houston.

So, in this month’s installment of The Full Menu, food writers discuss their favorite soups at restaurants around town. In the audio above, we hear from Eric Sandler of CultureMap Houston and David Leftwich of Houston Food Finder.
