It's a Portuguese staple on the menu here on the SouthCoast, but the debate is red hot when it comes to the best kale soup around.

I've been looking to film Episode 4 of The Spatula – which I'm titling "Calling All Kale Soup Chefs" – for quite some time now, and I'm finally getting around to take on the great search.

However, I'm in dire need of a bit of help to find which restaurant people prefer for a delicious bowl of hot kale soup. This is where you can truly make a difference.

Ever since I was a little boy, growing up in my vavo's house, the distinct aroma of a hot pot of homemade kale soup always filled the air. From the second you opened up her door, you were smacked in the face with fresh kale and locally-sourced chourico boiling down in an old tin pot.

Man, what I would do to relive those nostalgic moments within the quaint house that was as Portuguese as it gets.

I'll admit that I'm a little fussy when it comes to kale soup and I know I'm not the only one.

Every restaurant has its own recipe, many with a lot of the same ingredients but then with each adding its own special flair. But the way a restaurant prepares its kale soup can go a long way in deciding which one you visit on any particular night.

After all, a simple bowl of kale soup sets the tone for your dining experience.

Below is a master list of restaurants all around the SouthCoast area from Swansea to Wareham and everywhere else in between. Choose wisely.
