A Steaming Won Tun Soup At Five Elements On The Drive


It’s days like today – when the clouds above Vancouver can’t decide between rain and snow – that we tend to crave warm, comforting familiarities. It’s also a time of year that sees us pinching pennies on all fronts except one: presents. In this, the mad rush of the third week of December, it’s important to remember to give yourself one, and an affordable one at that. This won tun soup from Five Elements, a no frills pan-Asian (mostly Thai/Vietnamese) cafe on The Drive, really hit the mark: piping hot, restorative, intensely flavoured, and merrily cheap at $4 a bowl.
