Fall is coming, which means you must have your go-to spots for a warm bowl of soup lined up and ready to go. If you haven’t tried Soup Shack Porter yet, you have to give it a taste. No, it’s not a New England clam chowder shack; it’s actually a super tasty Asian fusion spot. The menu features overflowing bowls of tasty ramen, flavorful pho, and all sorts of small plates perfect for sharing. Did we mention the Thai noodle dishes that taste as if they came off the streets of Bangkok?
To start, order the edamame, which arrives perfectly steamed with a little salt. If you want to indulge in a fried delicacy, try the kaki fry, deep-fried breaded oysters with katsu mayo sauce. For entrees, let’s talk about those piping-hot bowls of soup. The Dirty Ramen is a favorite of many, as it has a spicy pork broth base with fermented bean curd, marinated braised pork belly, Japanese bamboo, mushrooms, scallions, sesame seeds, spicy chili vinegar, nori, and togarashi. If you’re more of a pho lover, try the Mi Hoanh Thanh featuring a bowl of chicken broth that’s filled to the brim with pork and shrimp dumplings, bok choy, sliced roasted pork, and fried garlic. No matter what you try, you’ll be wowed by the flavors!
