    1. Do you like the ingredients to be crunchy or cooked until very soft?

  2. I'm not into this tong sui either as I don't like lotus seeds and gingko....and it's usually very sweet!

    1. If you cook your own, you can buy top quality lotus seeds and ginkgo that taste very delicious unlike those sold in restaurants and you can control how sweet you want it to be.

    1. Why do you hate the white fungus? Because it is slimy to you? Actually can cook the white fungus and keep it crunchy, not slimy by quickly removing it after boiling and add it to the tong sui when about to serve.
