With the autumn chill setting in and one too many jacketless mornings, I landed a pretty nasty cold. Yesterday, after a lunch of Theraflu and cough drops, I decided to spare my cubicle neighbors the operatic sniffling and sneezing and left work early to get some much needed bed rest. On my way home, I stopped into Cafe Edison for the classic cold remedy: a big bowl of matzo ball soup.
Cafe Edison is known for its tasty soups. I can only hope that the rest are as good as the matzo ball. The matzo ball soup consists of big chunks of chicken, egg noodles, and a broth in which bob two massive matzo balls. The matzo balls are tender to the spoon. As I whittled my way through the first, the best part was that there was another just waiting for me to dig into. Feeling warmed, I realized the $5 I spent at Cafe Edison probably did me better than the $15 I'd just spent on cold remedies.
