    Default worthy of the name

    Can I say:

    This is the sizzling soup worthy of the name.

    Or what is the best way to say it after I present the soup
    which has sizzling sound in front of my guests?

    Can a soup sizzle?
    Must be a thick one, with fish that you fried in a pan or something then?
    I'm not answering your question, I'm just getting curious :-p

    I am also curious about "sizzling soup". However, provided this soup can sizzle, I would say.

    This dish is worthy of the name sizzling soup.

    Hi, Mike:
    I really appreciate your help.
    "Sizzling soup" is a kind of chinese soup that they put some
    hot crispy rice on its surface to make the sizzling
    sound.

    The reason why I wonder how to say it is if the rice is not
    hot enough, there isn't any sound.

    Can I say:

    This is the sizzling soup in reality as well as in name.

    Yours would be better as "This is sizzling soup in reality as well as in name."

    :wink:
