A Taste of Hot & Sour Soup

Hot & sour is my favorite soup; it is made with pork or chicken, tofu and dried mushroom. In all cases, it contains ingredients to make it both sour and spicy.

This soup was introduced to me in one of the restaurants in Nassau, Bahamas, when I still work in a cruise ship 11 years ago. Each time we have disembarkation on different Caribbean spots like Puerto Rico, U.S. Virgin Islands, Mexico and St. Maarten, and as long as there is a Chinese restaurant, I never missed tasting hot and sour soup.

The photo was taken in June 2010 at Chinatown in New York. From Penn Station, it took me a train ride through subway going to Canal Street. The meal was served with a free hot green tea.
