Soup isn't the obvious choice in Miami, a city that runs on sunshine year-round. But every now and then, the temperature dips below the seventies and we get the urge to put on a scarf and slurp a delicious bowl of soup.

That's why we've listed the top soups in town.

So if you need to feed your soul, cold, or throat, we've got you covered.

10. Duck Noodle Soup at Green Papaya

This roast duck noodle soup ($10.50) has a delicate broth, scented with five-spice and lined with cabbage. The meat is tender and the noodles are perfect. The best part? You'll find a ton of duck when you go hunting with your spoon.

9. Sancocho de Gallina at Mi Colombia

Sancocho is an ideal hangover cure. This Colombian hen soup is available only on Sundays -- a convenient date for those who had a rough Saturday night. It comes with yucca, potato, corn on the cob, plantain, cilantro, and green onion. You also get a side of rice and avocado. Bid that tremenda resaca goodbye.

8. Wonton Noodles Soup Hong Kong Style at King Palace

Noodles add a whole other level of comfort to soups. When you pair them with succulent wonton-wrapped shrimp, it's like a giant hug. At King Palace, your wonton noodle soup ($7.95) comes with a choice of egg, rice or flat noodles. It's the perfect pick-me-up for whenever you're feeling sick or down.

7. Pumpkin Soup at Tap Tap

Most restaurants feature pumpkin soups during the fall, but Tap Tap keeps it on the menu year-round. At this popular Haitian South Beach restaurant, these bowls ($6) is as popular as the coconut shrimp, conch salad, and mojitos. You can add some meat if you'd like. But it doesn't need it. It's beyond tasty already -- with bits of potatoes, carrots, celery, and pumpkin.

6. Lagman at Cheyhana Oasis

Lagman ($7.50) is an Uzbek soup with chopped lamb, homemade noodles, vegetables, and Asian spices. It represents a melting pot of cuisines -- Chinese beef noodle soup meets lamb stew with potatoes, green beans, and carrots. It's a delicious bowl, one with tender meat and wonderful hand-cut noodles.

4. Matzo Ball Soup at Josh's Deli

We don't want to bust our bubbe's balls, but Josh's Deli has an awesome bowl of matzo ball soup ($5.75). Instead of classic chicken schmaltz, owner Joshua Marcus employs duck fat. He adds a touch of ginger beer, too.

3. Pozole at Chapultepec

If you want a great Mexican soup, you have to head north to Hallandale Beach. There you'll find Chapultepec, the source for tasty menudo and pozole ($6.99). The latter is our favorite. It's served piping hot -- filled with tender hunks of pork and hominy in a red broth. It's also got toppings galore: cabbage, onions, radishes, cilantro, chile, and oregano. It's well worth the drive. (It's also among the best pozoles we've ever had.)

2. Tonkotsu broth at Momi Ramen

You can't beat pork broth -- especially one that's been simmering for 18 hours. Momi Ramen is the only place in town that makes their own noodles. The bowls aren't cheap ($15.99), but they're all tasty. You can choose from a few different styles of tonkotsu broth ramen, such as pork belly or wild mushroom.

Chowder, Florida style.

1. Conch Chowder at Florida Cookery

Boston and Manhattan residents have their chowders. And thanks to Florida Cookery, we have ours. This recipe ($14) dates back to 1948, when it was written in a cookbook owned by chef Kris Wessel's grandmother. Wessel adds a modern twist with conch churros. This soup is beyond flavorful, featuring great additions like lime, cilantro, and sweet corn foam.
