Elementary School Lunch: 06/25 - double salad, please

Food, JapanKristina PinoComment

Today's lunch was Chinese-style, and way tastier than we (some of us in the staff room, anyway) imagined it would be by simply reading the description in the menu list.

We had some shrimp dumplings, Chinese-style salad, and a Chinese-style soup with corn. At that last part, we were like, what? Corn? Soup? But as it turned out, it was awesome. The soup was mostly egg and tofu, though it also had bits of chicken and other veggies, like onion and bamboo, and the corn looks to have been boiled with the broth, because it overpowered the egg's taste. It wasn't what I assumed, a creamy sort of corn deal, just kernels. Very tasty.

As for the salad, it was a radish salad with spinach and bean sprouts, seasoned in the kitchen. I had seconds of this particular element of our meal, actually - and was so stuffed afterwards.
