When one needs a seriously potent chicken soup to get over a cold, we strongly suggest the Korean hen soup known as Sam Gae Tang at The Mill in Morningside Heights. This traditional dish has a sweet rice, ginger and ginseng stuffed tender bird that has been poached for hours so that the meat almost falls off the bone. All is served with a spoon that one scoops out the protein with and the bowl provided on the side is for the bones. We did not discover this soup until a couple of years back but it definitely is a stronger herbal remedy than the traditional chicken recipes found at local restaurants.
