Looking for an authentic, memorably kick-ass, bowl of Hot and Sour Soup somewhere in the Van Nuys/Sherman Oaks/Studio City area. Any strong suggestions? Thanks.

It's not a $15 bowl of gourmet hot & sour soup or anything, but for a $3 bowl of hot & sour soup to go along with your american chinese meal I really like the hot & sour soup @ china T&D North Hollywood. Much better than PF Chang's version if we want a benchmark.

I actually pay the +$3 for a small bowl when ordering a la carte, but individual size comes with the lunch/dinner specials (gratis for dinner/dine in lunch, +$1 for togo/delivery). .

Yes but they changed names. Not sure if related either but before the name change tasted the same with similar equipment + decor.

Disneyland for 5 days in November - seeking grocery stores and lunch/dinner options

Yeah but you don't have that cool "I'm eating in the middle of a ride" feeling. Ymmv how much that's worth.

Hate is a strong word. I would go to RM if I had the available funds and I have no issue with Sotto.

I'm just not a fan of eating out of fish bowls, but I'd try it if I could.

Any particular reason ya'll aren't recommending hudson valley?

I actually went before you did, just haven't had a return trip. Now, 4-5 years later I just remember "Tasty, but expensive".

thanks for the suggestions - I didn't particularly care for the amaebi head miso soup.
