    mlomeister's Note:

    A random Southeast Asian seafood soup with Malaysian influences. If some of the ingredients are vague, like "dried noodles", it's to make the recipe with for all tastes and needs. (Like rice noodles for low-fat, or egg noodles for a treat.)

      The flavors of this soup are incredible. So good! Thank you mlomeister. 16 oz noodles is enough for 8 people. I cut down the rice noodles to 4 oz and I still got about 4 big servings.(No complains, since I love the soup)
