Cold Day, Hot Soup


" width=

Our first little cold snap late last year inspired a Five in 5 list of chicken soups to warm you up. That was back in November, when a little chill was welcome. Today is something else altogether, but I think these places will still do the trick for a core-warming lunch or dinner and a dose of prevention.

Pho Tau Bay

113 Westbank Expy., Gretna, 368-9846

Pho ga, or chicken noodle soup Vietnamese style, with herbs to add tableside.

Taqueria Guerrero

Half a bird goes into the pozole (pictured above), bobbing with hominy.


333 St Charles Ave., 378-2840

Matzo ball soup's chicken broth is a "Jewish penicillin" delivery system.


1432 St. Charles Ave., 267-3032

Siamese Thai Cuisine
