west lake beef soup has become one of my chinese ordering mainstays. this version, from new capital seafood in rowland heights is more like the traditional thick gung style while the one at oak tree inn in south pas is lighter and with more spinach. i like both.
and i like eating my soup out of ridiculously small bowls.
caldo verdeish soup with sweet potatoes and chickpeas. i used chinese sausage instead of chorizo and just spiced the soup more but with the sweet potato, it was too sweet. i had to do a crazy amount of creative seasoning.
