Rated 5 out of 5 by from This soup tasted exactly like my favorite restaurant made it in Dallas, TX. This soup tasted exactly like my favorite restaurant made it in Dallas, TX. Wonderful! Only change I made was to add one large clove of minced garlic. Didn't make the sandwiches. I made a hearty salad and bread to accompany it instead.
