Good Food for a Sore Throat in Sherman Oaks(-ish)

I'm feeling a little under the weather tonight and I wanted some recs for takeout. I was strongly leaning towards the soup at The Great Greek, but with an entree I didn't want to spend $20/person on the meal. I'd like something soothing, preferably with some soup and I'm at a loss. Maybe I'm just really out of it, but any recommendations would be appreciated. Thanks!!!!!

  1. Pho at Pho So 1 on Sepulveda/Victory. Great for a sore throat. Most of their bowls of pho are $5.25.

    1. If you can make it to Studio City, the Won Ton Soup with Ginger Broth at the Out Take Cafe is very soothing and almost a meal in itself.

      1. obviously too late for tonight, but maybe tomorrow get yourself some good jewish penicillin...aka chicken soup. i can't offer suggestions because i'm pretty ignorant when it comes to valley dining, but i'm sure there are plenty of hounds who would be willing to weigh in on who has the best.

        feel better!

          Solley's on Van Nuys near Ventura has a pretty darn good chicken soup and matzo balls. I usually get a quart size container (big enough for a few meals) for around $11 or $12.

          Best thing in the world for a sore throat, and you don't have to drive too far!

            Second the Solley's rec - always our go-to place when someone's under the weather.

            Solley's Restaurant & Deli

        2. Hot and Sour soup found at nearly any Chinese take-out place will cure your sore throat within 24 hours. Works for me!

            Bamboo on Ventura and Hazeltine makes a great Hot and Sour soup. The heat will glaze your sore throat and cure it. MB on Stansbury at Ventura almost next to Jinky's also makes a pretty good selection of soups including hot and sour.

          2. Someone else mentioned Solleys, the best thing about this is they will deliver - as will Jerry's (which is the same as Solleys). So will Art's. But for matza ball soup I think Solley's is better.
