It's the time of the year again for that reunion dinner & feasting! Well, with the cold weather forecasted for the next few days, soups are the best remedy. Here are a few of my favorites; if you are not adventurous, better stop reading now!
Another delicacy but not easy to find. At one time, it was really popular in Hong Kong. I had tried some great ones in Toronto too. This soup is best for winter. It keeps you warm for a long time! Yum!!!
It's truly gross for some, however if you've eaten them from young, you simply don't think much about it. Innards are very popular with the Chinese & Asians, so, what can I say? When in Rome, do as the Romans do ;-)
This is chicken soup but with a twist, black chicken! It's cooked with herbs and if you are not used to herbal soups, my guess is you'll puke ;-) The idea is not to eat the chicken but merely to drink the soup!
How good this one is depends on the beef balls naturally. I found the best beef balls not in China or Hong Kong but in Indonesia & Thailand. Beats me why but they surely taste different. Easy to cook and I bet most of you will love it!
Supposed to be good for health. Beats me why but it's one of more normal kind, if black is your color, that is ;-) There is herbs in this one too. So, if you are not used to drinking herbal soup, you'll puke, lol...
A home made soup really. Chicken feet is popular with the Chinese from Guangdong province, ie. Cantonese. It's a soup consisting mostly of chicken feet (as the name implies) & peanuts. Easy to cook and generally quite tasty!
This is one of those fancy & yet downright expensive soup. It may be salty or sweet, depending on how one cooks it. If I'm paying, I won't be taking this. As far as I'm concerned, it's way overpriced! There are better alternatives ;-)
