In Southern California, you don’t find much of that classic winter feeling. Often, the temperatures are still high and snow is nowhere to be found. So what do you do when you want to embrace the winter season? This is where great food can come in to create the experience. Here are 4 winter dishes you can order when you’re looking for a comforting meal.
Soup is one of the best winter dishes to give you a taste of the season. There are also many options to choose from. From classic chicken soup to french onion and pho, each culture has their own spin on this dish. (Not in the mood for a hot soup? Try a gazpacho)!
Pasta is one of those foods that brings that home-cooked feeling to any meal because every family has their favorite recipes. These are typically heavier dishes that are great for nights when things do cool down a bit. Whether you’re after four cheese alfredo or a simple mac and cheese, we won’t judge.
Subs are great for summertime, but hot or toasted sandwiches are often even tastier and perfect for the winter season. Sandwich shops usually offer the option to toast your go-to order. Alternatively, you can order a grilled cheese or a panini. You can’t go wrong with any of these drool-worthy options. Don’t forget the fries!
Cocoa or Tea
Is there anything more comforting than a hot cup of cocoa or tea? Many restaurants offer classic rich cocoa or flavorful teas. These are perfect to add a touch of warmth to any item you order. If you want to try something a little more unique, some restaurants in southern California offer a wide selection of chais or herbal blends.
