Best Pick-Me-Up

Om Gai at Dee Dee

You can almost set your clock by it. At around two in the afternoon, we invariably have a sneezing fit due to the gazillion allergens floating around in our town's air. But even after downing a fistful of Allegra, we still need something to break through the fog. Dee Dee's om gai has everything we need – chiles to clear those sinuses, dill to wake up drowsy taste buds, rustic chicken to comfort, and the perfect sticky rice to sop it all up. It's an instant restorative no matter what the pollen count.

1906 E. Cesar Chavez
