Soups to Warm the Soul in Newport Beach
While our SoCal winters aren’t quite as brutal as in other parts of the country, the chilly weather often satiates our cravings for warmer food. If you’re looking for a great bowl of soup that will keep you satisfied, try these Newport Beach restaurants.
Malarky’s Irish Pub is a great spot to get your soup fix. Their classic Irish Stew is a crowd favorite. It’s hard to beat a great chili.

Flavorful variations of Pho prepared with top quality ingredients in a savory broth are the stars on the menu at Lotus Bistro. Yelpers categorize Lotus Bistro as having their favorite Pho. A variety of options are available including seafood, chicken, beef, filet mignon, beef ball, and wonton soup.
