This restaurant's overall star value depends upon comparing its rankings against those of various other restaurants in the same city.

Simple soup/bouillon of Moringa leaves + roasted tomato and dried chilly chutney with onions and salt. The soup: sautee onion, garlic and dried pepper in a pan, add water+ salt. Let it boil and then add the clean leaves of moringa(brede mouroung) For chutney you can alter it with coconut chutney as well. Taste heavenly. My mom used to prepare it whenever I let go of myself while suffering from fever or cold.

Whenever my wife and I are feeling ill the last thing we want to do is cook. We head over to our local Vietnamese Pho restaurant. The hearty goodness of broccoli, carrots, shiitake mushrooms, tofu, basil, sprouts, and jalapeño with broth full of flavor kicks in gear taste buds that are otherwise dulled by sickness. It is also good on a cold winters day.

Tea with echinacea, lots of fresh ginger, a chunk of lemon, possibly goldenseal or a dash of cayenne. And green smoothies! I've had a cold completely disappear in hours after loading up on green smoothies.

If a cold or flu has already set in, I blend together these fabulous healing foods. In a blender add: 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar, 3 cloves garlic, 1 inch ginger, 1 inch horseradish, 1 small cayenne pepper and 1/4 onion. Put all in a blender and mix until smooth. Take a Tablespoon every hour for relief of ills. This will help clear sinuses, rid mucous in your system and help build your immunity. A wonderful mucous cleanser!

Any time I feel a cold or sore throat starting, I make a mug of miso soup. It either stops what was starting or lessens it impact. It works better than anything from the drug store.
