I'm sick with a summer cold. Ugh. Hot and sour soup is the only thing that will do. Who's got the best in Oakland Chinatown. Thanks in advance.

      Phnom Penh has a really good hot and sour seafood soup... I forget what it's called, but it has tomato and pineapple in it. That's my go-to soup when I'm sick.
