We couldn't live without split-pea soup...probably have over 100# stored in the cellar. I'm gonna follow the link maybe find a new recipe and will absolutely, without fail stop there if we get the chance. Thanks

I have only been to Pea Soup Andersen's (in Carlsbad, CA) once, and we didn't eat there! My dad was meeting with a lawyer about one of his inventions. I have always wanted to try their food though.

CharlieD We store every thing we need to live on without ever leaving the house for a very long time. Actually when it comes to split peas its a lot closer to 300lb than 100...

...and you should too.

Anyway Google had 'supposedly' the Anderson recipe for their world famous soup.

I often wonder who first made pea soup they must have been brave.

Just imagine who milked the 1st cow?

Anderson's place north of here is famous to be sure. I've had their soup there twice, and in my opinion, it's a terrible excuse for good pea soup.

Different strokes for different folks, but it's beyond me why it has such a following. To me, it tastes like they just boiled up a bunch of split peas in water and called it soup.

I love their pea soup and go when I can just for that. Their entrees though are sub-par. I don't know if they reheat frozen meat or what not but the texture has not been good the past few times I've eaten there.

Memories! When I was in high school Daddy was stationed not far from Buelton, at Vandenberg. Never ate there then, though; Mom made (makes) the best pea soup, so eating it out wasn't really an option (we saved that for good Mex or Asian foods!). Then many moons later hubby and I were doing a trip down memory lane and stopped by for a bowl. I really liked it, but think mine (and Mom's) is better. Theirs is vegetarian, and although you can get sides of bacon and ham, I miss the smoked pork flavor of ham bone or ham hocks. While you're in the area, go hit a smorgasbord at Solvang for another meal.
