“This is an original Asian soup recipe from a popular Asian restaurant in California, sent to me by my girlfriend who resides there. This is one of the best, and easy to make Asian soup recipes around, a must-try. (Note: if you are not a big fan of tofu, then it may be omitted if desired, but I think that the soup has a much better taste with the tofu added)”
