When I’m sick, I tend to skip meals, sometimes going an entire day on just a bowl of rice.
But for the past few days, I’ve been battling a cold. Sore throat, coughing, congestion and a headache. And I’ve been craving one thing: pho.
Pho is a Vietnamese noodle soup, usually served with raw beef or chicken and a plate of fresh basil, mint leaves, lime and bean sprouts.
It’s really the warm broth and easy-to-eat noodles that make this my go-to dish when I’m sick. (And one of my favorite bowls comes from Saigon Restaurant Vietnamese in Chinatown.)
What’s your go-to dish when you’re not feeling well?
