A Late Night Bowl of Soup in Shanghai

Some bowl of noodles

I don't really know what this was. But after a number of drinks tonight, my stomach was craving some soup, and this stall's late night noodles on Wujiang Road fit the bill. The broth was light yet full of savory flavor, all going nicely with the rice noodles, deep fried tofu, and chili pepper paste on the side. I wasn't in much of a mood to eat those blood cakes though.

Epilogue: I just found out that this was called lao ya tang, or literally "old duck soup." I'm not sure what it was supposed to taste like, but if the broth was duck-based, then that explains why it was so tasty.
