I had a soup this evening that transported me halfway across the world. "Mom's" Mulligatawny soup was quite delicious, with exploding tastes and aromas of the Subcontinent. With a little hummus and pita, it felt as if I was back at the Coconut Lagoon--enjoying the air, the smells, the experience and the friendships.
One might recall Mulligatawny from the Seinfeld episode with the Soup Nazi. If his tasted anything like "Mom's," well, I'd take the chance at his place too.
