Whelp. I’m sick. Which means that my culinary excursion has come to a screeching halt. Darn me for not making a huge batch of chicken noodle soup when I was feeling fine! So I am going for the next best thing (honestly probably the better thing): Famous 4th Street Deli’s famous chicken soup.
The famous Chicken Soup comes with: matzo ball, kreplach, bow tie noodles, rice, kasha, onions and carrots. The matzo ball is the size of a softball. The one in the photo above is cut in half so it could fit in my bowl. Kreplach are small dumplings that can be filled with ground meat or other filling. Kasha is a soft grain, usually buckwheat. If I could figure out how to make this, I’d be one super happy person.. maybe one day.
Needless to say, this is the best medicine I’ve had so far for this cold/flu/sickness/whatever I have. I have a ridiculous amount of soup (one order of the soup feeds 2-3 people) so I expect to live off of this for the next day or two.
Thanks for the comfort, Famous 4th Street Deli!
