The non-sea monster serving chinese restaurant in Renton... [Feb. 25th, 2007|05:44 pm]
So, I'm still having coughing fits, and sometimes that "something died in my throat" taste. I decided that hot and sour soup, kung pao beef and/or cashew chicken is the only thing that will cure this dread beast.

And, hey, if it doesn't work, there's that whole "getting to eat the hot and sour soup, kung pao beef, and cashew chicken" part of the plan that works out well, in any case.

Thank you to all the well-wishers; I'd take the time to respond individually, but I'm alternating off and on with massive headaches from coughing, dad blast it all.

I know how that feels. Hopefully the food will help, or at the very least be enjoyable!

The thing I go for if I'm congested is Chinese mustard. If there's barbecue pork on which to eat it, so much the better, but I've been known to just go for small bits on the spoon when desperate. And blast you! Now I'm hungry for kung pao something-or-other from Simons, and it's not in the budget. :) (Hope you're feeling better soon...)

I do think that hot and sour soup has curative powers.

I've always thought of Hunan cooking as "kill or cure" material.

I wish I could teleport you a big bowl of my chili, which is not *your* most excellent chili, but which, thanks to a liberal dose of chipotle powder and the juice of a lime, is exceedingly tangy and head-clearing, and will probably prevent scurvy to boot.

But I can't, so hot and sour soup is a good second choice.
