Chicken Soup...

I'm home sick today and just need a really good bowl of chicken soup...can anyone recommend a take out place that can help me out?

  1. Call your nearest Chinese takeaway and ask if they have Ya Ka Mein soup; it cures all.
    I also like egg drop when I'm feeling bad.
    For chicken soup, I used to get it at Robert's grocery, though I don't know if it is daily.
    Langenstein's may have one too. Martin Wine Cellar does nice soups as well.
    Not knowing your location, it is hard to make more specific suggestions for you.

      Thanks, I'm in mid-city on Esplanade but I can drive a bit to pick it up

    2. I am pretty sure both nearby Manchu locations have Ya Ka Mein. They are at Esplanade & Claiborne and Broad & St. Philip. Also, Doson Noodle at Canal & Carrollton has decent pho.
