Yep- garlic should be its own food group. I don't know if I'd like the star anise in this though, and I don't know what samba lek tastes like.


Adorkable rockstar!
I do something like this, but I add pickled jalapenos and bean sprouts on top after cooked and plated. I sometimes use miso paste for the broth.
