Everyone is talking about ramen, and there’s a ramen shop in almost every East Bay neighborhood. But what about all the other delicious Asian soups out there with the same soul-warming potential? Here are ten soups (at eight venues) you might not have thought of.
One of my favorite group of folks to hang out with are sommeliers. First of all, they are in the business of making people happy and generally speaking, they’re pretty good at it. Because they know an awful lot about wine, I almost always learn something from them. Since you might only get a few moments consulting with a sommelier or wine director in a busy restaurant or wine bar, taking a class from them is a great way to absorb even more wine smarts.
