Bird’s Nest Soup: Better than the traditional chicken soup?
We all have that fond memory from childhood of having delicious and nourishing chicken soup our mother made whenever we were sick. However, a recent trend has taken this bond between birds and soup one step further, as the bird’s nest soup is becoming a famous dish worldwide.
Just like its name suggests, bird’s nest soup is actually made using the nest of birds. As gross as it may seem, many critics have taken quite a liking to this dish. And now, because of its unique idea, it is the highlight of many restaurants that offer their version of this unique recipe. What does it taste like? It is made of edible bird nests called “the caviar of the East.” It is made from a swiftlet’s nest, mainly found in Southeast Asia.
