  1. Since half n half and a hot pot are in there, you can throw in every mid-range tea house, all hot pot places, and almost every cantonese restaurant that serves soup.

    Herbal/health foods can be very broad or very specific, most restaurants serve some type of "bou tong". Though my family usually just makes it at home, i think most cantonese families won't go out specifically to get herbal stuff at a restaurant.

    1. That article is way overinclusive.

      By that author's amorphous definition (e.g. "to reap health benefits"), every restaurant that offers winter melon soup, or sea turtle soup, or heck, even chicken soup, would count.

      Give me real parameters, then we'll talk.

      1. That article is a pun, yes? I mean, why regurgitate this onto CHOW when the piece reeks of... food writing depravity? Because it involves Chinese joints? All of which have been covered? Also, Chinese don't call konnyaku, "konnyaku"

        What else is herbal and healthy? The cocktail currently in my hand involving backyard peach, cinnamon, and nutmeg -- organic herbs and healthy peaches.

        Real Chinese herb: back wall of TS Emporium. The rest of that list can shove itself back into Pasadena.
