Hong Kong-style Borsch

Looking for good examples of this classic, beet-free soup in any borough--and, more generally, any recommendations at all for Hong Kong-style Western food: baked seafood spaghetti, sizzling pork chop with black pepper sauce, etc.
Try XO Kitchen on Hester in Chinatown. They've got most, but not all, of the classic HK-style western food stuff.
Make your own, it's easy. Pork bones for the broth (has to use pork bones to get a little fat, can't substitute), plain tomato sauce (enough to taste, not to thicken), vegetables, red pepper flakes.
