    The "Soup Nazi" comes to Coney Island!


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     On Saturday, the 25th anniversary of the first episode of “Seinfeld” airing, BQueen1 came across a scene made famous by the hit TV series. The Original SoupMan, known as the “Soup Nazi” on the show, opened a new concession stand at Coney Island. BQueen1 had already eaten a Nathan’s hot dog for lunch, but says she’ll be back to try the soup!

    If anyone saw the Seinfeld episode which aired in 1995 inspired by the original SoupMan Al Yeganeh who had his location at 55th and 8th Avenue in NYC and although he had the best homemade soup in town was very difficult to deal with and if you didn't adhere to his strict rules, such as get in a straight line, pick your soup, have your money ready, move to extreme left when ordering, he would spot you and yell, "No Soup for you!"
    Anyway, that is how he got the name "The Soup Nazi" by Seinfeld's character which aired on an episode of his show and made the SoupMan famous.
    However they say Al Yaganeh is a tempermental chef, artist and a mystique surrounds his delicious soup. Is it really worth the price and stress?
    I will find out next week as I will order some of his soup at the new Sur Ave.Coney Island vendor location. He will most likely not be there.
    I asked some of the staff if his soups are all that, and they all said and emphatic "Yes!"
    However, now due to his popularity there are 22 new shops and The Soup Nazi's soup can be bought online..
    Thank you.
