A few years ago, I tried to duplicate my favorite H&S soup recipe without any luck. I may have made a thread about it, but I can't remember. All of the ones I made tasted like sesame oil, every pot was dumped down the sink. They were terrible. They also all came out a yellow-ish color, the one I like is dark brown.

My favorite soup from Happy Family Vegetarian Restaurant:

^^ I bought a tub last night, but it's almost gone

What makes it so dark, the mushrooms? The broth? I would omit the dark mushrooms, would it change the flavor profile of the soup? I usually eat around the worm looking mushrooms. The tofu and bamboo shoots are delicious. Help please!!

I wonder the same thing about the miso soup I've had from restaurants (I hate it when I've made it at home).

The darkness might be from soy sauce or mushroom stock idk. You can always try asking the restaurant, but they can be dicks about that sort of thing (revealing ingredients).

I was going to ask the restaurant, but they barely speak any English.
