Tofu, egg drop, black fungus. Cup $4.40
Jasmine Tea House, San Francisco CA
I love hot and sour soup because it’s a little bit spicy and filling. I can’t remember if this one had chicken in it, but there was plenty of tofu to take its place.

Thick broth cooked with black fungus, bamboo shoots, tofu, scallion, vinegar, pepper. Cup $2
Makli Chinese Cuisine, San Francisco CA
I was skeptical of this place at first because it was a random Chinese restaurant that took over the closed down Daimaru Japanese restaurant space. We went here for dinner and had a pretty good experience. The service was friendly and the food was pretty good. These two dollar soups are a great value. I could categorize it as more of a bowl than a cup! The soup was nice and spicy and had a nice, deep flavor.
Stir fried with lettuce, bamboo shoot, black fungus, and carrot with a flour tortilla. $9.50
Harbor Village Kitchen, San Francisco International Airport (SFO)
Omg, this was just a large greasy pile of crap! The duck was gross and stringy and I still can’t believe they threw in a flour tortilla to accompnay the mu shu pile. That was laughable! Let’s just say I didn’t eat much of this.

Au’s Kitchen, San Bruno CA
I love getting this dish. It combines some of my favorite things – fish, eggplant, and garlic sauce. Yummy!

Soba noodles with assorted Asian vegetables, fungus, and slcied greet onions. $8.50
Ebisu, SFO San Francisco
Like most items at Ebisu in International Terminal G, this soup is VERY salty! The broth has pretty good flavor, but I don’t think I can ever finish an entire bowl of this because of the high salt level. This is an interesting bowl of soup though because all the vegetables are all cut long and thin so they look and work well with the buckwheat soba noodles. Just wish
Wok sauteed chicken with onions, green and red bell peppers, and black fungus in special sauce over steamed white rice. To go special $6.75
Grand Palace Restaurant, South San Francisco CA
Like I’ve said in a previous post, every place has their own version of General Tso’s chicken. Grand Palace’s version uses sauteed sliced chicken instead of deep fried breaded chicken bits. Their sauce also isn’t sweet or sticky. So what I’m saying is that, I don’t like this version very much – LOL! But it true, after all the guilty from ordering General Tso’s chicken, I want the satisfaction of biting into fattening, fried chicken pieces.
Sauteed eggplants with green onions, bamboo shoots, onions, black fungus, ginger and dried chilis in a garlic sauce. To go special $8.00
Grand Palace Restaurant, South San Francisco
Oh how I love eggplant! These were SO good too. I love how they were super saucy and garlicky. I was also surprised how much food they give you for their To Go Special. This didn’t come with any rice so it’s just a huge container of Szechuan eggplants, noms!
