Hot and Sour Noodle Soup
suān là tāng miàn
This special dish comes from northern China. The main ingredients are shredded pork, cloud ear fungus, carrots, diced bamboo shoots, tofu cubes, and an egg. The soup is flavored with vinegar and peppers – thus giving it its sour and spicy taste. Whether the dish is sourer or spicier depends on the cook.
