First up, is Vietnamese Pho. There is a great recipe here. If i don't make a pot at home, I go to Binh Duong in Bloomfield. It's a small, local-to-me place that has pretty good ratings and is always busy.
My other favorite soup is chicken pozole (or posole). It's a traditional hominy-based Mexican stew closely associated with the Pacific-coast state of Guerrero. I first had this soup at a best-ever dinner party in November 2011. Since then, I harassed the hostess for the recipe.
|Yes, there a whole chili in there.|
As you simmer, it’s easy to prepare the ingredients that await the pozole on the serving table:
- Thinly Slice lettuce
- Small diced white onions
- Thinly sliced radishes
- Oregano pieces
- Lime wedges
- Mexican hot sauce (El Yucateco-Habanero Roja is my favorite it can be purchased at Amazon here.)
