Hon's Wun Tun House Hot and Sour Soup (Vegetarian requested)
I have a cold and wanted the perfect vegetarian soup just a little bit spicy to clear the sinuses but not insanely hot. Yes I have a soup maker and do make soup myself all the time but sometimes its better if someone else makes it for you. There aren't too many places where I would go to eat soup in my neighbourhood its hard to find good vegetarian options and I can make really good soup in less than 25 minutes in my soup maker. Then I remembered Hon's used to have a hot and sour vegetarian soup. Hon's is a chinese noodle house that has been in Vancouver for over 35 years. There are 5 locations in the lower mainland and there is one that is walking distance from where I live. I went to the take out desk and looked at the menu none of the soup was vegetarian. The hot and sour said it had diced seafood in it so I was getting disappointed but I asked and yes they can still make it vegetarian. The cashier asked if I wanted a small or large I said small. This cost $6.25 and I got a 10% discount for paying cash. I knew the small would be big I got 4 bowls the size of the picture out of it. This is the perfect combination for me it is just spicy enough to open up my sinus, has tofu for my vegetarian protein and some other veggies and it tastes really good its a little bowl of comfort and made me feel better.
