The flu is still wreaking havoc across the country. Here’s how bad things have gotten in NYC: The Manhattan Soccer Club recently asked its young players not to high-five or fist-bump one another for fear of spreading germs. Players are allowed to touch elbows to signal their team spirit.
If you’ve already high-fived the wrong person and come down with the flu, there are ways to make yourself better. One is to get out your soup spoon and dig into a bowl of supremely satisfying soup. While there’s not hard, fast scientific research that soup can fight the flu - apart from the steam from hot soup possibly helping to clear out clogged noses - no doubt it will definitely make you feel comforted. Especially if your soup comes from one of the following places.
Wise Sons Deli - San Francisco, California
Hui Tou Xiang Noodles House - San Gabriel, California
Veselka - New York City
BCD Tofu House - Los Angeles, with locations around the country and in Korea
Quang Restaurant - Minneapolis, Minnesota
