Regional[edit]

This soup is found in Chinese restaurants across Mainland China,[1] Hong Kong,[2] Taiwan,[3] and some Southeast Asian nations such as Singapore,[4] Malaysia, Indonesia, the Philippines, Thailand, and Vietnam. It is particularly popular in Hakka-speaking regions of southern China and Taiwan. It is also popular in Chinese takeout restaurants in the United States, Canada,[5] Europe,[6] and Japan.[7] In the Philippines it is called sopang mais.[8]

The soup may be derived from tofu-crab soup, a soup also found in restaurants in North America.[citation needed]
