Episode: “The Soup Nazi” (Season 7, Episode 6)
If there’s one food oddity from Seinfeld that casual viewers remember, it’s likely the Soup Nazi. The gang begins frequenting a fantastic new soup stand, only to be banned one by one by the particular owner due to their difficult behavior: George asks for bread, Jerry’s girlfriend distracts with her PDA, and Elaine rudely bangs on the counter while the Soup Nazi to Al Pacino in Scent of a Woman. Later, Elaine drives the Soup Nazi out of town when she finds his secret recipes — from mulligatawny to corn and crab chowder — in the armoire he gives Kramer. “No soup for you,” Elaine taunts the Soup Nazi, in one of her most vindictive moments ever.
