Bongo Bongo Soup

Great for New Years. This is from Trader Vic's restaurants. I first had this back in the 1970's. Don't leave out the A-1 (it makes a difference) and don't sweeten the whipped cream. Unfortuneatly, the Seattle Trader Vic's closed many years ago. The closest one is in Atlanta or Tokyo.
