Seeking a hot, aromatic, cough-inspiring, nostril clearing, sinus draining soup to ward off the flu. Not unbearably Habanero, just something to make a healthy individual sniffle, tear, and sweat like a cold can of soda on a hot day.
Trust me I've tried them all(Chinese Hot-sour, Tom Yum, halászlé, Pho, chili, etc.)
So far I've been adulterating the amazing Pho (Pho Saigon in Glendale Heights) with some peppers and chili sauce. The Opart Thai House has a couple flu-fighters on the menu.
I'm just seeking the grail. Any suggestions?
