When this happens, as it does a few times each winter, I choose one of two remedies. The first is a bowl of pho
. The second, today's selection, is a specific lunch at Shu Feng
: hot tea, a bowl of hot & sour soup
and General Tso's chicken, extra spicy. Without fail, I walk out of the restaurant feeling much better than I did walking in.
I'm sure I'm not the only one with a specific folk remedy or superstition or whatever you want to call it when a cold strikes. Readers, what are your favorite restaurants, dishes and foods to fend off a cold?
At some point yesterday evening, a malevolent force took up residence in my head, forcing the immediate evacuation of my sinuses and filling the empty spot where the average person has a brain with helium.
