FOS Project – Halligan’s Pub

Last week we went to a new place, Halligan’s Pub, for dinner.  They had French Onion Soap so I ordered it.

It was good.  Not as good as Rio Grande Station or Molly’s but still tasty.

We got take out so I don’t penalize them for presentation.  The cheese was nicely caramelized.  I would get it again when we go back.

FOS Project: Yesterday’s

While on Vacation we hit Ocean City, NJ’s Yesterday’s for some lunch.  They had FOS on the menu…of course I got it.

I’ve said this before, but when a restaurant has Prime Rib on the menu the French Onion Soup is going to be amazing! (Hamburger is almost always a sure bet that it ground left over prime rib too).

This FOS has moved to the #1 spot in my book.  It was an awesome offering.  Not to salty, very beefy, very oniony and the cheese was a Provolone/Muenster combo giving it a great texture and taste.

The bread wasn’t took large as to soak up all of that tasty broth.  I could have eaten and entire pot of this French Onion Soup.  If you are in Ocean City, NJ stop by Yesterday’s for lunch or dinner.  Their food is most flavorable and delicious!

FOS Project: John & Molly’s

This weekend we were took time to visit Air Victory Museum.  It was fun.  it’s a small Museum in Lumberton, NJ.  Totally worth the visit.

After our visit I used Trip Advisor to find a good place to have lunch.  John and Molly’s was rate #1 for the area.

 

 

It didn’t disappoint.  The portions were huge.  The food was good and best of all they had French Onion Soup on the menu.

This FOS was super tasty.  I’m always excited when I see a place has prime rib on the menu because they tend to have the best FOS.  This soup was super awesome!  I was prepared to move it to the #1 FOS I’ve ever had.  I now think it’s tied for # with the Rio Station in Wildwood, NJ.

Check out John & Molly’s for some tasty foods!

FOSP: Yard House

It’s been a while since I’ve had French Onion Soup.  Which, in general, makes me sad.  This weekend we went to Yard House for the first time.  They had FOSP so of course I had to get it.
The portion was a little small but the presentation was nice.  It used good bread and was packed with flavor.  This one placed high on my FOSP meter.  Give it a try if you are there!

French Onion Soup Project – Volume #6

We went to a local place over the weekend for some tasty treats.  MaGerk’s is a pub like atmosphere with Draft beers but also offers a Seafood Steampot.  I highly recommend the Cheese Steak Nachos!

French Onion Soup was on the menu so of course I must take the challenge and get it.  It was very good.

It wasn’t too salty and the cheese was perfect.  I’m not a fan of Sharp Provolone cheese on my FOS and was very happy this fair didn’t have any of that.  The cheese was perfectly melted and the bread in the broth was just the right amount.  There is nothing worse than breaking through the cheese to find one wet piece of bread and no broth.  Kudos Chef at MaGerk’s.  You’ve done a fine job!

On the FOSP meter I give it a solid 4+’s

FOSP: PJ Whelihan’s

I recently went to dinner with my Sister at PJ Whelihan’s.  Since they had FOS on the menu I had to get it.

It was a very tasty fare.  They use more than one type of cheese and as long as the cheese isn’t bitter I’m good.  It was a tasty broth too.  I would totally get this again.

Not a FOS matter but they have delectable Pot Stickers too 😉

FOSP – I Forget Where I Ate It

I had FOS when we were out and I can’t remember where it was we were but I do remember the soup.

I am wanting to say this is Chillis but I’m not sure.  It was definitely one of the Chain restaurants.

It wasn’t bad.  It wasn’t as beefy as I like it but they used Provolone cheese not Swiss so that was a good thing.  It just makes me want to got to Wildwood for some Rio Station FOS.  Now that’s super yummy!
