    - Carla -'s Note:

    Posted above the counter of the Soup Nazi's "take-out-only" Soup Kitchen is a sign laying out three important steps to buying his soup. Knowing that to violate these rules is to risk being refused service, as most of us have seen in the classic 1995 episode of Seinfeld. This is a "copycat" version of his Crab Bisque. From P.S. The Rules 1. Stand on line & have your order & money ready when you get to the counter. 2. Tell the Soup Nazi your order & pay him. 3. Move to the far left to receive your order.

      This was good, but I wasn't a fan of using the potatoes as a thickening agent rather than flour. It gave it kind of "chowder" taste, and I would have preferred a bisque. I also had to season at the end as I felt it was a little bland with no salt. I added my favorite seasoning agent: Tony's Cajun seasoning, and that gave it the kick I was looking for. Once I seasoned it, it was very good, but next time I will omit the potatoes and use flour to thicken.
