Shredded Roast Duck Soup (火鸭丝羹)

The Shredded Roast Duck Soup is a Chinese style thick soup that is full of texture, as it has the crunchiness from black fungus and carrot strips, as well as the tenderness of duck meat. The contrasting flavor of sha cha sauce (沙茶酱) and black vinegar creates a strong taste that surprisingly, blends well with the duck. I'm the kind of person that prefers strong flavor in my food, and I only have one word to describe this... Shiok!
