Often visiting restaurants is a pain as you travel…. mainly because, by the time you have informed them of the vegetarian needs with enough language barriers and specifies that you dont want egg, fish sauce, chicken, meat, bacon….. and more from the list the waiter is quite baffled… still smiles and points out an option or two.
Penang though has further improved my skills in communicating my needs and getting necessary results. One of the main reasons, Penang understands, vegetarianism. the vegetarian Chinese restaurants taught me a special and easy recipe, healthy no doubt and perfect when you are under the weather. Tung Qua- Winter melon soup.
I guess its time to share it with you too..
This delicious simple soup has the key ingredient, wintermelon. grated or cubed the melon is usually in a flavourful thin broth ( ask for the veggie broth)
Try these too
