It’s no surprise at all that many of Shiro’s Saimin Haven’s customers visit the hot spot on a regular basis. And while all of its offerings are onolicious, it’s safe to say Shiro’s soupy selections are the main attractions.
Among their prized dishes is Oxtail Soup ($15.90). According to Bryce Fujimoto, vice president of Shiro’s Saimin Haven, the eatery’s version of the local favorite features nice, premium whole pieces of oxtail, not “splits.” The restaurant also lovingly braises the oxtails for hours to create a lush house-made broth.
Besides the oxtails, other ingredients in the soup include a substantial amount of Chinese cabbage, two pieces of gau gee and peanuts. For extra satisfying flavor, guests can add in Chinese parsley and ginger.
In total, the entire multi-step process of creating the very popular soup takes at least half a day to complete, notes Fujimoto.
Other addictive, tasty soup-filled offerings the popular restaurant is known for is, of course, its playful variations of saimin like Lumpia Saimin with Wun Tun, Vegetables and Garnishes.
