Visiting NYC, got a cold. Need spicy food!!!

On the first day of our 5 day visit, my partner has contracted a cold. Hot, spicy food usually helps him get over a cold quickly. Any suggestions?

        BCD Tofu House in Korea Town for a bowl of piping hot and spicy soft tofu stew (soondubu chigae). My favorite cure for a cold.

    2. Extra Spicy Restaurants, Please

      I also highly recommend the Chicken in a Pot from 2nd Avenue Deli. And they will deliver to anywhere in Manhattan for a small fee.
