ISO Thai Soup Recipe

sunshine842 | Dec 25, 201001:24 AM

Hi all....need help finding this one, as Google isn't giving me what I want.

Had a fantastic Thai soup at a restaurant in Paris the other night, and the stuff is haunting me. On a cold night, it was fabulous comfort food, and just amazing flavor.

It had:

Coconut milk (probably with broth of some sort as a base, as it was creamy, but not thick)

Fish (firm white fish, cooked 'til just done...not mushy or rubbery)
Tomatoes (big chunks)
Pineapple
Bamboo shoots
lots of basil leaves

Didn't see any lemongrass, no cilantro.

Was a little spicy - just enough to have a good kick, but balanced beautifully with the other ingredients.

Anybody have any ideas? I love Thai food, but unfortunately just haven't had much opportunity to be all that well-acquainted, so don't know if this is a traditional recipe, or something the chef has dreamed up...

I'll probably play around with it after the holidays if nobody has an answer, but hoping to at least get a nudge from someone.
