Mien Ga

Chicken Glass Noodle Soup

Apparently, chicken soup is good for your soul. This delicious soup has thick hunk of chicken floating in a chicken based broth which is almost guaranteed to be made fresh that day. The clear glass noodles are popular in Chinese cooking, however, the Vietnamese version uses rhizomes from the canna plant as it's starch source. The soup will most likely be garnished with chives, and a plate of greens, chillis, and lime will likely be close by.
