Brookline, MA: Going Meat-Light at Sichuan Garden

When I was working in a Chinese kitchen, I tried the pickled green beans for the first time; we had it as a weekly staff meal. They are really sour (almost lip-puckeringly sour) and took a bit of time to get used to, but then the sourness turned into deliciousness, I remember eating just a few pieces at a time balanced with a big bite of rice. There were also shreds of smoked duck in it which gave it even more bite!

The Food Lab: How to Make Tonkotsu Ramen Broth at Home


I just wanted to let you know how important/groundbreaking this post is. As a tonkotsu ramen fan, there has always been that unbeatable mystery behind the broth. I feel like you've just unlocked a secret door for everyone with your hard work and trial and error and testing. Thanks! One day, when I am ready, I will embark on a journey to make a subliminal soup broth and I am certain that this recipe or knowledge even will be the building block that I base my creation on. Thanks again. There is something so inexplicably amazing about this kind of food.
