    Tomato soup

    emointhekitchen According to the theory of the five elements, the energy of wood rules the spring. We mainly take care of the liver and gallbladder.

    Buddha’s Rice Soup (“Buddha jumps over a wall”)

The food name is an allusion to the dish’s ability to entice the vegetarian…

    Mung bean soup

    emointhekitchen In the warmest period of the year, we naturally have an increased need for refreshment, cooling and replenishment of fluids.
