Make our Soup Man Mulligatawny Soup Recipe at home tonight for your family. With our Secret Restaurant Recipe your Mulligatawny Soup will taste just like The Soup Man’s.

Today’s recipe is for the soup made famous on Seinfeld.

You remember…”No Soup for YOU!”

On the popular episode, everyone is crazy for the soup of the so-called, “Soup Nazi.” People are lining up for half a block just to get a cup of his soup. Each time Jerry, George, Kramer or Elaine take a bite they almost faint with spasms of delight.

Like much else on the show, this was based on a real part of Jerry’s life in New York City.

There actually is a Soup Man and he runs a tiny soup restaurant in NYC that has customers lining up everyday for cups of soup, even in sub-zero winters.

The creator is named Al and he goes by the title “The Soup Man.”

“Soup for you!”
