Hey, y’all — City Editor Molly here. I’m certainly not rushing summer away, but more so thinking ahead for fall (and cold season).

Whenever my husband is sick, there’s only one food he wants to eat: Caldo Tlalpeño, the homemade chicken soup from Jalapeno’s. Fun fact: It’s also our follower @maryjanehendrickson’s go-to as well.

To help you plan for those days when you feel a little under the weather, check out some of the suggestions below from our readers + followers.

Athenian Grill’s Avgolemono soup will cure whatever ails ya and is my go-to for any friend or family member who’s recovering from a pathogen, surgery, or accident.” — Reader Tresine L.

“Miso Soup from Osaka Japanese Restaurant on Dylan Place is my favorite soup anytime, but especially when I feel under the weather.” Reader Suzanna W.

“The Tom Yum chicken soup from the Bangkok House is our family’s go-to cure for any and all sinus, throat, and chest illnesses or allergies. Basically, it’s the Ohio valley allergy wonder cure.” — Reader Dana S.
