Best in Calgary when you are under the weather / freezing

Where do you go for hot delicious meals when you are feeling sick? Or when the weather outside is bad enough to make you feel ill?

Best soups? Spicy meals? Restorative noodles... anywhere? I will even take a cure all recipe.

Need some warmth on this cold weather day!

  1. Pho! Everyone has their own favourite restaurant for that but I like Pho Hoai in Chinatown

      Agreed - my favourite in my neighbourhood is Saigon Passion - I go there when I'm feeling cold.

      But tomorrow, I'm pulling a couple of meaty ham bones from the freezer and will make a French Canadian pea soup.

        My go to is the Satay Chicken Soup at Noodle King.

      2. Definitely pho. Also the spicy ramen at Shikiji.

        1. I love hot tea from David's Tea in Southcentre.

          1. I always want spicy samosas when I'm feeling sick, no idea why. The best IMO used to be at Spice Rack in Dalhousie in the mini mall complex across from Sir Winston Churchill High School, but... the family who owns Spice Rack opened a take out restaurant next door called Saffron and that's where you have to get their samosas now. I find the veggie ones are the ones that make me feel better.

            1. Congee! Golden Central makes a decent bowl.

            2. Pardon the interruption. Just a quick reminder to post any cure all recipes you have for yycfeedme over on the Home Cooking Board-with a link posted in this thread; as recipes are considered off topic for regional boards.
