Best Soup to Please the Palate and Clear the Sinuses - 2001
Golden Plate's hot-and-sour dumpling soup more than lives up to its name. Tender, pork-filled pasta pockets come swimming in a pungent, fiery liquid laced with fresh cilantro, green onion and five-alarm red peppers. The soup is a perfect blend of spicy and tart, and the dumplings add a dash of salt -- as well as doughy relief -- to balance the dangerously addictive broth. If you can't stand the heat...no soup for you!
