Hong Kong Style Borscht Soup

This is a classic Hong Kong dish, where it is served in restaurants and homes alike. This soup is similar to a traditional Borscht soup but instead of beetroot, tomatoes are used. Flavours can further develop when cooked for longer. You can also change the ham bone to beef bones, shin or oxtail for a different taste.
