Thanks to this thread, I had some last night, in fact, from the hole-in-the-wall Thai place nearby. Mine is a lot better but I was feeling exceptionally lazy.

My next project is making Vietnamese hot/sour soup which is actually also sweet, with pineapple in it.
I noticed that they always list the ingredients on the menu. If you're allergic to shrimp, you can have them omitted it and add in more chicken.

I've never once (that I recall) not seen it like this: "Tom Yum ( Chicken or Shrimp) * choice of chicken or shrimp in hot and sour broth seasoned with exotic thai herbs, mushrooms, lemongrass, and lime leaves"

Or like this

Oddly enough we have a "Lotus of Siam" restaurant here in Vegas too. It is the most highly rated and most popular Thai restaurant here. My favorites (in any Thai or Chinese place) were Tom Yum Gai, Wor Won Ton soup, and Hot and Sour soup with extra vinegar and soy sauce added. And of course with any of those soups, my husband had to pile on the hot chili oil. Great stuff.
