Could it be “chiltepin”? A Mexican tiny, round HOT pepper that is smashed to add to food.
Lemon juice? for tangy?
The Cilantro and Pork smacks to me of a Mexican dish called “Pozole”
Think we would always agree in the food department.
If the menu ‘heat’ scale is one to five, I always ask for ten.
My dear husband maintains that if it doesn’t make him break a sweat, it isn’t hot enough!
That is certainly not the case for me. Just a little hint of heat is plenty. Now as for that lovely allium sativum . . . bring it on!
Hmm, sour – tamarind paste?
Isn’t tamarind sweet?
unripe tamarind is very sour and used for pickling. it gets sweeter but not very sweet.

pozole = hominy. Cilantro is a staple in most Mexican dishes
You did not make that, someone else did!
Whew, my tongue is burning just thinking about it. Have a wonderful time. Prayers for your safe travels and for your intentions.
That looks very good – which restaurant?
It looks awfully good.
Hi Father , bean sauce will give you that sour flavour , heat & sour flavour can be obtained with chilli bean sauce — my preferred brand of both is ” PUN CHUN ”

Tamarind is most definitely sour!
Chinese, people, Chinese!
I’m in the Tibetan region of Sichuan this week and I could swear I had that soup at dinner last night!
Tamarind is a vegetable derived souring agent used in Thai cuisine. Souring in Chinese is often done using black vinegar.
If you’re looking for the name of a fiery red pepper used in Chinese cuisine, try “zhi tian jiao”. It is native to the Guangxi province and just a touch of it goes a long way!
I remember when I visited Chongqing (just east of Sichuan) and made a reservation for a ‘hot pot’ dinner, the first thing they asked was whether I was a local. I found out that this was for them to adjust the amount of spice they put in the broth used for cooking the meal. The broth that I got was RED and pretty much made my tongue numb, cleared my sinuses, raised my blood pressure, and made my lips burn all night. When I asked the waiter what locals got, he pointed out the neighbouring table where their broth was BLACK. I have little doubt my digestive tract would have survived that.
Actually hominy = “garbanzo” (a kind of maize) This garbanzo is added to the :
“Pozole” = Traditional Mexican posole (pozole), a broth rich soup made with pork, red chiles, and lots of add-ins like shredded cabbage, radishes, cilantro,
see picture. It kind of looks like Fr. Z’s “soup”
Somebody is copying somebody . I hope the picture I linked above comes out OK. It looks like your “soup”
I guess the link for the picture didn’t come out but here’s a link to LOTS of pozole pictures.
I vote for the 4th from the left as the one that looks the most like your Chinese “soup”
