Best Tortilla Soup?

Yup it has been asked before but the threads are pretty old so thought I'd get a 'modern version' started. :-)

The best I've had is in Zi at Casa Viejo but can't really just drop in from PV to have that so am in search of recommends for PV. Let me say at the outset, although many seem to love it, I do not care for Ernesto's TS at all. I want soup not stew. I want nice sized chunks of avocado and lots of corn tortilla strips. I'll be checking out Encanto's TS this year along with their Shrimp Chile Rellenos (Chile Rellenos being my other fave thing). Hole in the wall/off the beaten track is fine. So tell me your favorites por favor. :-)

Nacho Daddy is never mentioned for their food, but they have great tortilla soup. I prefer thin tortilla soup, light on the cheese. I had tortilla soup at La Playita in May, thought it was very good. After reading a lengthy thread on Ernesto's soup, I gave it a try. I didn't care for it, but my stew-loving husband loved it.

Each trip I look for the "best" of something. I may re-visit TS next trip. It's one of my favorites-right up there with rellenos and enchiladas.

The best tortilla soup? Very difficult to say, as this soup is made different in every establishment in Mexico that offers it....The best, the very best, is mine!

Obviously a personal choice, but I like the one at Nacho Daddys.

I haven't tried speedo's TS but the TS at El Toritos was great.

I like the TS at Fajita Republic. They bring all the fixings on the side, so you can add the onions, avocados, and cheese to your liking and it's not too thick, more broth like.

The tortilla soup at Las Alcatraces is good and nicely presented. they start by brining you a bowl with the "extras" in it, then pour the broth over it at your table.

We went to the Los Alcatraces near Costco, but there's also one across from Mega and (I think) one in the Marina.

I do like Ernesto's the best, a friend of mine likes El Torito better. It's not a dish that has just one recipe, and I had to laugh at the thought of which one "Mexican foodies" like best. It's almost a soup designed to use up leftovers.

I make tortilla soup from leftovers at home. To me, leftovers=great soup.
