Hototay Soup

Hototay soup is a common dish for Filipinos. Hototay soup, originally, is a Chinese soup. But now, expect to see it on the menu list of some Filipino restaurants and eateries.

Hototay soup is a combination of meat-and-vegetables with slivers of pork meat, pork liver, chicken gizzards, dumplings, mushrooms and vegetables in a clear broth garnished with raw eggs. Some find it exotic, but I said; its authentic.!

Hototay requires a lot of time in terms of preparation. The ingredients will undergo the cutting, chopping, slicing and mincing efforts. But the cooking it self, its pretty basic and simple.

* 1 onion, chopped

* 1/2 cup shrimps, shelled

This is not the authentic one, I still remember the Moderna Chinese Restaurant in front of Sta. Cruz Church, they really served good Hototay soup. The Jacinto Chinese Restaurant and Chow-Nam are really good too, they served the same authentic one, the ingredients are not the same as shown over here and should not mix with dumplings. Hototay is my favorite soup since I was a kid and I still remember how it taste. There are exotic ingredients that are missing in here, I still remember all those, like the cucumber jelly fish, etc.
