Best Soups in the Twin Cities
South Asia's Warmest Tradition
The Southeast Asian soups customarily differ in taste from the western cuisine for a number of reasons. One of which is the use of bean curd also known as Tofu (that is prepared by coagulating soy milk and then pressing the resulting curds into soft white blocks). A feature not normally found in Western cuisine especially soups. Many traditional East Asian soups are typically broths predominantly starch thickened soups lacking in dairy products such as milk or cream. These soups are prepared traditionally and consumed in the cultures of Asia as a very widespread enchantment especially in winters. Asian soups usually contain refined starches of corn or sweet potatoes for thickening them in contrast to the Western style dried soups that are rich in veggies, chicken base, potatoes, pasta and mainly cheese flavors. Their Special Soup is a perfect blend of fresh vegetables, chicken, beef, mushrooms, and shrimps.
Chicken Corn: The King of Soups
Despite an entire legion of soups available on the planet, one of my favorites is quite vintage types i.e. the chicken corn. Typically, sweet corn is used in preparation of an appealing & mouthwatering soup. Dated back in history, in general, it was every so often prepared majorly in corn-producing capacities of the world, but is now pervasive due to greater corn dissemination.
