Added Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, spring onion, sesame seeds, soft egg, pork for hot pot , and habanero togarashi.It’s pretty amazing what flavors you can achieve without the use of what they’re named after. The noodles first off are soft and plentiful and suck up the flavor of the broth very well. The broth has a nice rich pork bone flavor – good oiliness and extremely tasty.

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.

#2932: Soup Daren Borscht Noodle

#2932: Soup Daren Borscht Noodle

Here’s another one I found up at Foodyworld in Richmond, BC. I’ve seen these as cups before but never bowls. Now, borscht sounds like an odd flavor from Asia – let’s ask wiki a little about it –

Borscht (English: /ˈbɔːrʃˈbɔːrʃt/ (About this sound listen)) is a sour soup popular in several Eastern European cuisines, including UkrainianRussianPolishLithuanianBelarusianRomanianAshkenazi Jewish and Armenian cuisines. The variety most commonly associated with the name in English is of Ukrainian origin and includes beetroots as one of the main ingredients, which gives the dish its distinctive red color. It shares the name, however, with a wide selection of sour-tasting soups without beetroots, such as sorrel-based green borschtrye-based white borscht and cabbage borscht.

Borscht derives from an ancient soup originally cooked from pickled stems, leaves and umbels of common hogweed (Heracleum sphondylium), a herbaceous plant growing in damp meadows, which lent the dish its Slavic name. With time, it evolved into a diverse array of tart soups, among which the beet-based red borscht has become the most popular. It is typically made by combining meat or bone stock with sautéedvegetables, which – as well as beetroots – usually include cabbage, carrots, onions, potatoes and tomatoes. Depending on the recipe, borscht may include meat or fish, or be purely vegetarian; it may be served either hot or cold; and it may range from a hearty one-pot meal to a clear broth or a smooth drink. It is often served with smetana or sour cream, hard-boiled eggs or potatoes, but there exists an ample choice of more involved garnishes and side dishes, such as uszka or pampushky, that can be served with the soup.

Its popularity has spread throughout Eastern Europe and the former Russian Empire, and – by way of migration – to other continents. In North America, borscht is often linked with either Jews or Mennonites, the groups who first brought it there from Europe. Several ethnic groups claim borscht, in its various local guises, as their own national dish consumed as part of ritual meals within Eastern OrthodoxGreek CatholicRoman Catholic, and Jewish religious traditions.

Phew that was a mouthful. Alright – let’s give it a whirl!

A fascinating combo.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added beef and scallions. Noodles were alright – thicker gauge than standard and a slightly firmer chew. The broth was fascinating – definitely a beet flavor to it – almost a hint of spiciness. Imitation beef via TVP was present and kind of fun. Cabbage as well – however it was real. 2.75 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 6925303714864.
