This is a delicious restaurant style Tomato Beef Noodle Soup. The broth is rich, flavorful and smooth on the tongue. The chunks of tomato and beef are tender and rich with flavor. It is a flavor experience you will never forget. The flavors of ginger, garlic, chili bean sauce, soy and rice wine marry so well with the tomato and beef. Delicious and unforgettable are the words that come to mind.

Custard is a french invention but has become very popular throughout Asia. It is frequenlty seen as a filling or decoration in Asian Bakery pastries and breads and in street snacks. My readers that have been to Japan or Taiwan, this is the filling used in 車輪餅Wheel Cakes, 雞蛋糕Egg Cakes and 銅鑼燒Dorayaki as well as many 麵包店蛋奶麵包bakery custard breads. I have included the Chinese Character so you can browse the internet and look and all the yummy creations Asian has to offer and for some to take a walk down memory lane. This recipe for custard is top of the line in custard recipes. The Japanese and Taiwanese took a delicious French invention and made it even better if that is possible. Feel free to use it in anyway you want, not just in Asian cooking.

Egg drop soup is a well known dish outside of China and versions of egg drop soup are too many to name. The recipe I want to share with you today is a thick and creamy sweet corn egg drop soup. I fell in love with this soup at Mcdonald's of all places in Taiwan. The Mcdonald's version has big delicious chunks of ham inside the soup.

www.yacook.org/node/1156. The recipe I have linked for you is just perfect, same taste I remember from Taiwan. The only changes that I made was to swap out the store bought curry roux for a homemade curry roux as well as a few spice additions. Some people like their curry thin and others like it thick. If you follow the recipe exactly you will get a thick curry. For a thin curry just reduce the flour in the roux to 3 Tbsp. I like it in between thin and thick at 4 Tbsp.
