I’m counting down the 100 best dishes I tasted in 2016…

When I am feeling under the weather, I run to the nearest Thai restaurant and order their spicy and sour tom yum gong soup. Clears things right up. The trendy Fish Cheeks is far from a take-out joint and their communal soup is one of the best versions I’ve ever tasted. The milky shrimp broth is loaded with delicate flavors from mushrooms, chiles, galangal, lemongrass, and kaffir lime leaves. It’s quite spicy, nicely funky, and completely restorative.. Price: $22
