Our first little cold snap late last year inspired a Five in 5 list of chicken soups to warm you up. That was back in November, when a little chill was welcome. Today is something else altogether, but I think these places will still do the trick for a core-warming lunch or dinner and a dose of prevention.

Pho Tau Bay

113 Westbank Expy., Gretna, 368-9846

Pho ga, or chicken noodle soup Vietnamese style, with herbs to add tableside.

Taqueria Guerrero

208 N Carrollton Ave., 484-6959

Half a bird goes into the pozole (pictured above), bobbing with hominy.

Lüke

333 St Charles Ave., 378-2840

Matzo ball soup's chicken broth is a "Jewish penicillin" delivery system.

Taqueros

1432 St. Charles Ave., 267-3032

Rich and warming tortilla soup is back at Taqueros' new incarnation.

Siamese Thai Cuisine

6601 Veterans Memorial Blvd., 454-8752

Spicy and sour chicken is just that, with hot peppers, lemongrass and lime.
