Shu Feng

The large bowl of soup features tender braised fish and a thick, mouth-watering layer of chile oil.

St. Louis is staring down a stretch of bone-chilling weather over the next week. With lows hitting the single-digits, nights will inevitably be spent hiding inside and cozying up on the couch. If you are brave enough to venture out into the dark cold to find dinner (and avoid cooking), you'll want something that will warm you to your core. We recommend heading to Olive Boulevard and picking up the Szechuan Hot Braised Fish from Shu Feng for a comforting and delicious meal. 

Several elements combine to make this the perfect cold-weather dish. A tender, braised fish filet is served inside a steaming bowl of soup, but if the temperature isn't enough to warm you up, the spiciness is sure to do the trick. This soup is topped with a thick layer of chile oil that will coat your palate. It may make you sweat, but you won't be thinking about the cold February air anymore. 

If fish isn't your cup of tea, Shu Feng also offers a similar dish made with beef, along with plenty of other spicy and warming options to fight off the gloom of February. 

Shu Feng is offering its menu for carryout and delivery through third-party apps.
