West Lake Beef Soup

Kalivs Apr 20, 2013 12:11 AM

Does anyone know where I can find West Lake Beef Soup? I used to have it all the time in the Bay Area. I would prefer some place in the SFV, but I can travel further if necessary.

    If you're willing to travel to the SGV, I've specifically seen this at Ji Rong in Rosemead.

      It's actually very common at Chinese restaurants in the Los Angeles area, so much so that I don't even notice it when it's on a menu. However, it's often not under that name, but rather minced beef with tofu or something similar..

        The only place I've ever eaten West Lake Beef Soup was at the Hop Li on Santa Monica Blvd. in West Los Angeles. That's not near you and since it's the only place I've ever eaten it, I doubt I'm any kind of expert on the quality versus the places in the Bay Area. I did enjoy the soup however. There are a few Hop Li restaurants around, so you might have to call and check first about the soup's availability.
