Yum, right?! Yeah, I love that stuff! ((not as much as I love Miso...)) BUT my boyfriend is OBSESSED with the clear soup, so I was wondering if anyone knew how to make it at home.
It's the clear soup with the fried onions in the bottom and floating mushroom slices. It's usually the same at every restaurant we go to, but I can't figure it out at home for anything! Here's a list of things I've tried to make it with and it tastes nothing like it::
-Chicken broth ((Wyler's, Swanson, Sweet Sue))
-Water + Dashi no moto ((Shimaya brand))
D: None of them make it taste like it!!
Help? ^^;;|||Here is an answer previously posted by someone asking a similar question:

clear soup contains water, light soy sauce, a little rice wine (mirin), fish stock this soup is light taste and you can used clam, fish cake, mushroom, shrimp, etc"
