Macaroni in Soup! Yes, you heard it right! In Hong Kong, it is extremely common to have macaroni in soup (餐蛋湯通粉). It is typically eaten in the morning as breakfast. When my partner first heard about mac in soup, he thought that was weird and unacceptable. After a while of exposure, he fell in love with it! We would always order it for breakfast on Sunday mornings at local cafes. Now, as we are no longer living in Hong Kong, we crave for it!
