Ask the Soup Nazi

Five joints to get your slurp on

Illustration by Bob Aul Away with anemic consommés and bland, canned broths. Give us instead the world in a bowl, a symphony for the senses, a porcelain canvas upon which a chef's vision is writ large! The following five fit this finicky bill.

CBS SEAFOOD RESTAURANT, 7212 Orangethorpe Ave., Buena Park, (714) 670-1601.Everything from shredded duck soup ($6.95) to such exotica as abalone with chicken ($9.95) and crab with shark fin ($15). Truly a slurper's Taj Mahal.

BAMBOO BISTRO, 2600 E. Pacific Coast Hwy., Ste. 160, Corona del Mar, (949) 720-1289.At this Vietnamese/Thai fusion, try the Thai chicken soup with coconut milk topped with ground peanuts. Jasmine rice is served on the side ($7.95).
