Not a mistake but don't you usually drink soup?

There are some who debate this:

From my own personal experience, the majority of Romanian speakers would say "mănâncă supă". I agree with the view that if you consume it with a spoon from a bowl, you're eating it and if you consume it from a cup you're drinking it.
