“One of a kind delicious soup dish. Apparently, this soup is very popular as Hotpot soup base, esp in Hong Kong.”
You might hate eating food with coriander, and also find it weird and unimaginable to have century eggs cooked in soup… but that’s not the case in this soup dish.. Such combination in my soup might sound unappealing but it was indeed very aromatic and delicious to consume. And don’t be surprised, this was one of the most popular options of hot pot soup base in many restaurants in Hong Kong. I was initially in doubt with such soup option, too, but looking at so many of the reviews from those experienced diners, they actually well commented this as hot pot soup base. Hence, I thought it wouldn’t go wrong to go with the choice of majority, esp the locals’ recommendation. So I tried the soup the very first time when I had my hotpot meal in Hong Kong. And, it surprised me pleasantly. It was such a delicious soup with natural aromas and sweetness yielded from the corianders and century eggs in the soup!
I couldn’t find this soup when came back to Singapore. I thought I should just try to cook at home. And, here we go!
