I've watched it twice now (on regular TV - I don't have TiVo or DVR or a blank VHS lying around), and I still can't catch the name of this one dish that has for some reason caught my fancy.
When A.B. goes to the photographer's house and the photographer's wife makes that gorgeous-looking Chinese noodle soup/dish, what is it? And does anyone have a recipe I can approximate, including with all the glorious condiments?
The broth is both shrimp and pork based, which is ladled over noodles, sprouts, greens, pork, prawns, and fish cake. The condiments she served were sliced red peppers in light soy, crispy fried shallots (or some sort of mouth-watering shallots), a garlic paste, and ground spices.
