Asian fake meat "Steamboat Flavor"?!!?

Silverlake Bodhisattva | Dec 29, 2005 04:51 PM

Chow Pup (now as tall as I am) and I were exploring the wonders of the new Asian "super-grocery" in Westminster CA last weekend, and, after passing the fish-ball section (two freezers worth) the tofu products section, etc. came to the Asian vegetarian "faux meat" refrigerator case.
OK:
"vegetarian duck"; seen it...
"vegetarian chicken" yawn...
"vegetarian kidney" , never had it, but seen it on menus;
"vegetarian tongue" that's newer...
"VEGETARIAN MEAT: STEAMBOAT FLAVOR".
!!!??!???! "Steamboat Flavor"?!?
What the heck is "steamboat flavor", or is this a
mis-translation?
