Detox With Taki’s Miso-Ginger Soup


It’s right about now that I hit a food wall. The holiday overload (read: cookies, eggnog, prime rib, and cocktails) has taken its toll, and I’m in the mood for something simple, light, and healthy. All of which means I’m headed to Taki’s.

This longstanding Japanese joint on the corner of Colfax and Grant simmers up the city’s best miso. A bowl-full is earthy and comfy with a bright punch of antioxidant-rich ginger. I always order a large and stir in a side of brown rice. The wholesome (if unconventional) combo seems just right–especially going into the New Year.
