best hot and sour soup in nyc?

If Hot and Sour soup is made properly it is one of the most enjoyable tastes sensations and can be a satisfying meal- especially if you add a little rice. It is so hard to get the balance of both spicey, peppery which really equates to the sour taste as well.

I cannot find a hot and sour that is worthy above chinatown....

WoHop is ok.too and ...at best. looking for a hot and sour soup that is tolerable, a bit sweet tasting at first and ends in a nice sour bite. I personnally like the veggies that are usually included and could care less about the pork. but i know it adds flavor. it has to have egg (whites) running throughout again to make it more of a gratifying filling soup...the tofu is another filler/protein source and makes the soup filling....don't need a lot..just enough to make it hearty.

would appreciate any feedback!
thanks
