It usually has a smattering of nice vegetables, some perfectly tender thin strips of pork or beef cooked in a delicious bone broth made without skimming fat and you can taste the marrow, and... As InSearchOfAbs put it, "an absolute fuckton of noodles." Rice noodles to be fair.
I just wanted more of the amazing broth, veggies, and meat this time around.
Sounds like what you had wasn't ANYTHING like the deal we get in my neck of the woods, yeah. Feel bad for ya.
