Lunch #2 on the last day in Thailand.
Not satisfied with the consolation dish, @djflukerps's tenacity compelled us to search on. We received a hot tip that the shop we were seeking is down 19th street (see hyperlapse video). I swear this place was harder to find than a sober teenager at Schoolies. Lucky for you we now have the location tagged.
The broth was like a thousand sensations dancing on your tongue. Sweet and savoury. Salty and sour. And definitely spicy, just enough to get your forehead damp but not over powering. Damo was happier than a Arab on an oilfield. It was at this point that he was ready to go home.
Yeah, I ate again in the SGV...main reason for staying in East LA! I had a craving for Guilin style rice noodles, the main attraction at Dandan’s Guilin Rice Noodle. I ordered the special (read: all toppings) in soup, with extra pickled snake beans (酸豆角 or in Sichuanese泡豇豆), because I am obsessed with them. Mom makes the best pickles of course, so I’m always on the hunt for a viable commercial competitor. I liked the crunchy soybeans, whose relatively mild flavor and sharp crunch contrasted with the softer, sour pickled beans. The noodles were, again, a bit too soft for my taste, but I think it’s a factor of rice noodles steeped in broth in general. I also poured in extra black Zhenjiang vinegar because nothing is too sour for me. In retrospect, I should have gotten the dry version, which would have solved the soft noodle issue. Overall, the noodles scratched the itch, but the taste was commercially uniform - not surprising given that it is a mini-chain in the SGV. I wonder if it’s an extension of a chain in China - anyone know? #glutinousgourmet#guilin#china#noodles#pickles#hotandsour#sgv#lax#losangeles#foodporn
"Growth is a process of trial and error experimentation." Benjamin Franklin Homemade Hot & Sour Soup. One of the best parts of living in Northern Cali for 4 years was being surrounded by the Asian food influence. 8 years later this is still my fav soup, took 4 years to master ;) #hotandsoursoup#spicy#noodles#bokchoy#scallions#soysauce#hotandsour

🇨🇳 Glad to have visited the @chinesefoodfestival this weekend, as it was a 🌞 sunny, glorious day and the food was amazing! 🥡 Was super busy today, with each queue being around one hour wait...⏱ the tactic would be to get as many friends as you can and each person queue for each stall, so you can try everything. 🌯🍵🍜 Unfortunately just two of us... but glad to have tried @chillilegend ‘s spicy, fragrant, yummy crayfish noodles, @liu_xiaomian ’s hot&sour glass noodles, and to finish off, @wheelcakeisland for dessert!! 😋😋😋
酸辣土豆丝 suānlàtǔdòusī. This time I prepared hot and sour shredded potatoes.
A dish I used to ignore when perusing menus in Chinese restaurants, shredded potatoes seemed boring and uninteresting. It was not until a friend introduced them to me while eating Spring pancakes that I found out how wrong I had been. I could no longer remain indifferent. The dried chilies give the dish delicate spiciness but also a slight sweetness that is balanced by the sour taste of the vinegar and the floral perfume of the sichuan peppers. Each potato stick is covered with these flavors and the scent of stir-fried garlic and freshly cut scallions. When bitting into the shreds I almost forget it is potatoes that I am eating, the ‘crunch- crunch’ sound tries to trick me into believing it is lotus root or carrots instead.
I did not achieve the result of that memorable potato dish I had that night, but I think I am on the right path:) #china#beijing#chinesefood#hotandsour#hotandsourpotato#potato#food#foodstagram#foodpicture#foodpassion#foodphotography#foodie#blogger#canon#canonphotography#nofilter#nofilterneeded

Traditionally served for breakfast, the "adobo" has a few regional varieties. In Cusco, slow cooked pork, onions, hot peppers, and spices yield a hot and sour, soupy stew that will have askung for more bread to clean the plate.
