I had a request for this soup from a sick friend. Made right it is a flavor explosion. I just use one tablespoon of fish sauce. I love the mushrooms but you could also add noodles for the same texture. item not reviewed by moderator and published

We love Thai soup, but this recipe had too much fish sauce that overwhelmed this dish. I would also replace the enoki mushrooms because of the expense and use regular button mushrooms instead. item not reviewed by moderator and published
My husband and I had eaten a Thai soup in Quebec at a little restaurant for lunch. The soup was so delicious that we went back for dinner to have more only to find it was not served at dinner. I have been searching for a recipe that would duplicate it and this is as close as it comes. I made a couple of additions of my own and it was scrumptious. item not reviewed by moderator and published
