    There is this very tasty Vietnamese soup, which is on the top of my favorites list.. I once made it myself by just putting together the ingredients which I noted in the restaurant.. and it tasted pretty amazing I must say

    I'd really like to know the original recipe though, anyone an idea?

    Basically what I did is boil water, add tomatoes and tomato paste, pineapple pieces + the juice, bean sprouts, celery, and big pieces of catfish and some sugar. Boil that for a while and then add fresh herbs: mint and maybe coriander and some fresh slices of tomato.. the mint is very important :)

    I guess the secret ingredient I missed might be tamarind..

    I don't remember now if I had to put additional spices in it.. probably I added garam masala and coriander powder, yeah.. I probably did :)
