Sea cucumber soup


Sea cucumber piece

Well, I just posted about sea cucumbers and now I had a chance to try them myself. Interesting, but I won’t be seeking them out again. This dish was at a fancy Chinese restaurant in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. First of all the texture wasn’t too appealing. A bit crunchy and a bit rubbery with some sliminess mixed in. The taste itself was not bad, just rather bland. The soup had a thick gravy like broth that was also quite bland. I know this is a huge generalization, but it seems to me that many Chinese foods have a bland overtone to them. I feel like this especially applies to their sweets and more exotic dishes, but not the standard stuff you would eat. I’m sure many of you will disagree with me there.
