So, I used to see this Chinese fish soup EVERYWHERE in NYC, but I haven't seen it anywhere in the Bay area.
It featured a sweet, mild white fish. Whole pieces of the fillet, not fish balls. The broth was clear and a bit sour. There was some kind of vegetable in it : crunchy, kind of the same texture as a bamboo shoot, only thicker. It may or may not have been served with rice. I don't recall the presence of noodles. Typically would be served in a big bowl for two or more people.
I miss this awesome soup! What is it and where can I find it? Or can you recommend a recipe so that I can make it myself?
