Egg Drop Soup
Probably the best-known soup in most Chinese restaurants, Egg Drop Soup is a popular starter to a larger meal, but it also makes a lovely entrée on its own. You can serve this soup topped with crisp wonton strips if you like, but a simple topping of green onion and sesame oil helps preserve the delicate flavor of the egg and chicken.
