Noodle Soup for a cold!
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!
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.
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.
Similar to Ony but a little farther away:
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):
26N Eldridge St near Canal St.
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.
