Shi Quan Tonic Soup is a hearty, warming soup filled with intense flavours from the duck and pork trotters. The herbal and richness are nicely balanced with gentle sweetness from the wolfberries, making it a pleasant soup to have.
It’s more commonly drunk as a confinement soup but it is definitely beneficial to anyone who’s feeling under the weather, especially in the erratic weather we’ve been having in SouthEast Asia.
