Noodle Soup for a cold!

outside25 Mar 12, 2007 10:10 AM

Used to go to Ony whenever I got sick for good veggie dumplings and noodle soup, but it closed! Other suggestions? I've had hit and miss experiences in Chinatown, so any suggestions there are great. Thanks!

    Rai Rai Ken is really good... beside the noodle soup you must try the Bamboo Shoots appetizer (about $2 and SO good). Near Ony, for noodle soups is Noodle Bar on Carmine St. The appetizers can be hit or miss but their soups are great-- particularly the Singapore Noodles.

      Similar to Ony but a little farther away:

      Menchenko Tai
      131 E 45th St, New York 10017
      Btwn 3rd & Lexington Ave

      For more authentic, Tokyo style ramen:

      Rai Rai Ken
      214 E. 10th St.between 1st and 2nd Ave

      For cheap and good (and in Chinatown):

      Super Taste
      26N Eldridge St near Canal St.

        If you want Pho try New Pasteur near chinatown.

            If, you decide to have PHO, I highly recommend the pho at Cong ly at Hester St. @ bowery. it's a small place located beside a hongkong noodle station but, the pho hits the spot and is the best i've had so far in the past 4 years or so. the most expensive pho is less than 6 bucks and it's a block away from the b,d grand st. station.

              Right! Forgot about them. I second Cong Ly and not just for the Pho. Everything I've ever had there was really tasty...but this thread is about Noodle soup.

                  Right. I was going to go on and list a bunch of other good Vietnamese dishes when I realized that the OP is just looking for a noodle soup... so i'm stoping at Pho.

              Bubby's has a pretty good Chicken Noodle/Matzoh Ball Soup in Tribeca and they deliver

                My favorite soup as cold remedy is Vietnamese Pho. I opt for the basic Pho Tai with the thin raw beef slices that slowly cooks in the hot broth.
                There's a whole row of Vietnamese restaurants on Baxter St. just south of Canal.

                  How about good, old-fashioned Jewish chicken soup (with noodles or rice, matzoh ball or kreplach) from Sarge's Deli? Open 24/7. They deliver. http://www.sargesdeli.com

                    Try Sarge's Souper Soup (or is it Super Soup?) which combines all 3. It's my favorite when I am sick.
