This is the soup I talked about in the starting of this blog post. It is the ABC Soup base. So far, I have not seen any ABC Soup base in any other steamboat restaurants before. We love this soup base very much. Every time we came here, we must order this ABC Soup. Besides ABC Soup, their other popular soup-bases are Superior Pork Bone, Spicy Sour, Szechuan Peppery Pot, Mala (Wednesday and Thursday only) and Pig Stomach Soup (this one need to preorder).
