I love the bowl in this picture. Is it part of a china pattern set or a random bowl used to present this soup? Thank you!

Amysarah -- good eye. That's exactly where I got that bowl. Very inexpensive, too!

Bingo! I've gone through many a Pearl River rice bowl (i.e., purchased, used, broken, replaced.) The prettiest are always the white/blue ones.

At Pearl River in Chinatown (NYC) they have tons of inexpensive white porcelain rice bowls with various patterns - I've definitely seen that particular one there before.

Found it - it's on page 8, under 'Blue and White Design Rice Bowl': http://pearlriver.com/v2/FramesCat.asp?iGroup=205

I was thinking the same Sam. It's very appealing.

I wish I could help with specifics..But to me it looks maybe Korean, or Japaneese. With the small 'lip' at the bottom of the bowl, reminds me of rice bowls of that table ware. I've seen similar designs and styles in Korean markets.
