Japanese-Style Corn Soup

-Malate, Manila, Metro Manila, Philippines-
with Korean colleagues and families
Try Every Item at Tao Yuan (31) (see also TEITY)
Eating my way through the restaurant’s entire menu, currently at 222 items.
Tasted 2 new items tonight, bringing the total to 174 items tasted thus far, 48 items remaining, averaging 5.6 items per visit, on pace to finish at TEITY 40.
The previous group dinner at Tao Yuan had resulted somewhat in disappointment, at least as far as I was concerned. At the time, I attributed the less-than-favorable outcome to various confounding factors, such as the large number (22) of guests, budgetary concerns, and divergent preferences.
Tonight’s beta gathering turned out far better with a smaller group (6+2 kids**) of like-minded Korean colleague who didn’t mind paying a bit more for good stuff.
