I'm posting this for my co-worker. We were talking today about soups that are good when you have a cold, and he brought up his favorite soup which he no longer gets since the restaurant he used to eat at closed.
He used to eat at a restaurant that was on Clement between 25th and 26th, but it closed down a few years ago. This Vietnamese restaurant offered hot and sour (or maybe sweet and sour?) soup which he really liked, and he's hoping to find something similar elsewhere. The soup contained slices of pineapple, chunks of tomato, bean sprouts, crispy fried tofu chunks, mushrooms, green onion, etc.
So, does anyone remember what that restaurant was called? Also, are there other places to get a similar soup, preferably closer to the Mission/Tenderloin/Central part of the city?
Thanks a lot,
