Manchow soup is a very popular street food in china, and you’ll find push carts selling off this soup customized to individual taste. The hawker will throw in the ingredients you ask for to make it suitable to your palate. Plenty of finely chopped veggies are simmered in a broth which contains generous helpings of ginger, garlic and mint. All these flavors make this soup very refreshing-which is why it is a popular soup on the streets of china. The aromas of ginger, mint and garlic truly awaken your senses. Delicious!
