Hototay Soup



Hototay soup is a common dish for Filipinos. Hototay soup, originally, is a Chinese soup. But now, expect to see it on the menu list of some Filipino restaurants and eateries.

Hototay soup is a combination of meat-and-vegetables with slivers of pork meat, pork liver, chicken gizzards, dumplings, mushrooms and vegetables in a clear broth garnished with raw eggs. Some find it exotic, but I said; its authentic.!

Hototay requires a lot of time in terms of preparation. The ingredients will undergo the cutting, chopping, slicing and mincing efforts. But the cooking it self, its pretty basic and simple.

* 4 cloves garlic, minced
* 1 cup sliced pechay Baguio
