Good Takeout for the Flu?

I wonder what time Oprah comes on? I haven’t watched her show in years. I remember watching her when I was a kid and thinking she was soooo cool. Isn’t she like the richest woman on the planet now? I wonder if she’ll ever run for president? That would be crazy. President Winfrey. I think I’d move to Australia at that point…

Oh hi, DC! I didn’t know you were there. My brain is in a little bit of a fog at the moment. I seem to have caught some sort of cold or flu that’s left me bedridden for the past two days. As if my flu aches weren’t enough, laying in bed makes me even more achy. Seriously, I have a question for you though. What’s the best takeout food for a sicko like me? I really don’t want to leave my house, otherwise I’d go to Whole Foods for a giant bowl of their chicken noodle soup. Do you have any suggestions? My ailing body would really appreciate it.

    OK, you guys were too slow and a guy’s gotta eat! My friend recommended takeout from Peking Garden and as it turns out they even have chicken noodle soup – just what the doctor ordered!

    Right, time to hibernate again.

    Jackey Cafe in Chinatown[block] has great congee, and Asian Dynasty on P Street between 20th and 21st NW has chicken noodle soup.

    I’ve never heard of "congee". Is that good for a cold? I’ve never tried Asian Dynasty though and will give them a shot. I love the idea of never having to leave my house. :)

    the greek place on capitol hill has a soup that is truly amazing. i believe the recipe was handed down from his grandmother in the old country.

    i’m a eclectic culinary epicurean, so i’ve been around the block, and believe me -the soup is a whiff of shangri-la itself.

    I just Googled "the greek place on capitol hill" and came up with nothing.

    Do you know the name of the restaurant? Do you know how far they’ll deliver this delicious whiff?

    Chinatown Express in Chinatown. Get the fresh made noodles in soup. I prefer them with roast pork. Good broth. You can spice it up as you like. Not sure if they deliver, but there’s always takeout taxi.

    I agree with Chinese take-out. For me, the spicier the better when I’m sick. A bowl of hot and sour soup can cure what ails you. Feel better!!

    Tom Yum soup from whatever Thai place you can get to deliver it. The spicy lemongrass broth will surely help break up any congestion you have.
