Help! Best takeout soup or other spicy stewish thing to defy a monster cold??

Any ideas? I need something that will expunge the mucus from my snout and throat, pronto, then lull me into a gentle slumber.

  1. Do they sell gamja stew to go at Hanmaru? That is both a spicy soup and full of sleepy potatoes.

    1. How far are you from a New England Soup Factory?

      Delicious soups and stews. I love their beef stew but there's always something spicy or comforting enough to clear out a stuffy head and make you feel better.

        i like hot and sour soup, ma po do fu, as well as spicy things from rod dee.

      2. A good Pho from your favorite Vietnamese place. Add the hot sauce to taste and need. Maybe Pho Ga so you get both the chicken soup and the spice.


        1. Thai tom yum soup is my go-to when I am sick. Take two and call us in the morning (and feel better!)

          1. For me anything tomato based and spicy works, that could mean a nice hot salsa with fritos, or a fradiavolo sauce with pasta. Feel better!
