Found this one among others up at FoodyWorld in Richmond, B. I just can’t get enough of Canada – it’s such a nice place with nice people and nice everything. This one looked fascinating – let’s check it out.

Smells like black vinegar.
Hey – what’s this?
TVP chashu pork slices!
Finished (click to enlarge). Noodles are quite spongy here, which is unfortunate; they jibe a little rough with the broth. The broth, however is quite nice – tastes like a rich pork tonkotsu with a nice edginess of heat to it. The vegetable bits hydrated well and the TVP chashu – could have fooled me – I’m having trouble telling if this is TVP or pork. 5.0 out of 5.0 stars. 6925303714857.
