You want cream soup in fried toast. You need it. Why? Because it’s the next evolutionary step for the clam chowder sourdough bowl. Imagine a box of fried toast, filled with a Taiwanese chowder, the kind you’d find in a Hong Kong–style café, thick with veggies, chicken, shrimp, and ham in a cream-based broth.
“The soup is a bit salty on its own, but mixed with the fried toast, it’s like Ginger and Fred Astaire, Gilligan and the Skipper, Starsky and Hutch …,” says ipsedixit, waxing about Pa Pa Walk.
The menu has other Taiwanese treats like fried oyster, sausages, stinky tofu, etc. If you’re going to have dessert, don’t pass on the mango shaved ice—a one-dessert weapon against global warming.
