We’ve all been there. You’re a feverish, achy, coughing mess, and the idea of walking to the bathroom, let alone to the store for food, leaves you in a cold sweat.
Your significant other is at the office, your mom is 1,600 miles away, and the only thing in the world you want is a cup of soup. What is a flu-riddled soul to do?
Call the faithful delivery man, of course.
Daisy’s Diner (452 5th Avenue, between 9th and 10th Streets, 718- 788-1438) serves a very respectable bowl of chicken soup ($2.25 for a cup/$2.95 for a bowl), and has the added bonus of a low $5 delivery minimum.
If you’re looking for hearty, you can’t go wrong with the chicken soup ($4.50 for a small/$8 for a large) at Metropolitano (133 17th Street and 3rd Avenue). The cost is higher, but the portion size is huge.
Leaning more toward miso? The soup ($6.50) at Kiku Sushi (453 7th Avenue, between 15th and 16th Street, 718-369-1155) is all about fresh ingredients, and will hook you from the moment you remove the takeout lid (if your nose is still working, that is).
Who do you call (translation: hit up on Seamless or GrubHub) for soup when the flu has you down?
