In the spicy, sour-from-pickles broth were plenty of straw mushrooms, succulently crunchy strips of vegetable and very thinly-sliced strips of fatty beef. I had to ask for the dish to be less spicy as my throat was a bit sore and they complied. So although I didn’t experience the full impact of the original spiciness, I still managed to satisfy my craving. Yes, the soup‘s on the oily side but it was very appetisingly sour and packed a pleasant low, slow burn. Would love to have this again at its proper level of spiciness.
