Winter and soup go hand-in-hand. And since Chicago is so good at delivering nice cold winters, we knew it would be great at bringing us nice hot soups. Here are a few of our favorite spots in the city.

Since Chicago is so good at delivering nice cold winters, we knew it would be great at bringing us nice hot soups. Here are four to try.

Signature creamy chicken and rice soup 

Find it here: Soupbox

Why it’s so yummy: It’s thick, creamy and rich! 

Kids will love it: The flavors work well together for one hearty and healthy meal. 

While you’re there, try this too: Get the soup in a bread bowl, and have fun eating your bowl when you’re done.

Details 50 E. Chicago Ave., (312) 951-5900; 2943 Broadway, (773) 935-9800

Matzoh Ball soup

Find it here: Manny’s

Why it’s so yummy: The salty, comforting soup comes with the biggest matzoh ball you’ll ever see. It’s soft, warm and tastes like home.

Kids will love it: Pop the soup onto a tray, cafeteria-style, just like school. And it’s a challenge to finish the entire matzoh ball.

While you’re there, try this too: Their corned beef sandwiches are so massive, you’ll have problems taking a bite. So be prepared to make a mess-and have leftovers that’ll take you through at least one more meal.

Lentil soup

Find it here: Taste of Lebanon Restaurant

Why it’s so yummy: This thick lentil soup is a bowl of savory goodness, and it’s enhanced with some mild spices and lemon.Even if you don’t think you like lentils, you’ll like this soup.

Kids will love it: They’ll be able to dip their warm piece of pita bread into the soup — it’s almost like playing with your food.

While you’re there, try this too: The falafel wrap is one of their signature items, and it’s huge, crunchy and messy.

Details: 1509 Foster Ave., (773) 334-1600
