Just before the new year – literally, on new year’s eve – I met up with Dessert Zombie. He wanted soup dumplings, but the place was super packed so we wandered a few doors down to get soup. I was sick, and wanted something to just slurp down… I let him order for me, and he got a wonton mein (wonton noodle soup). I don’t order wontons on a regular basis; it isn’t that I don’t like them, but there’s always something else to eat that appeals to me more. But the reason I’m posting this: the wontons were actually really good. Very thin skinned, with a lot of porky goodness on the inside with lots of flavor, I really enjoyed my noodle soup and it hit the spot on the cold day, with the egg noodles and the MSG-laden broth.
Okay, I added hot sauce at some point because my palate started to get bored. It was Red Devil, though, which is very vinegary and I love vinegar.
Cheap too… I think lunch was a couple bucks.
Just don’t go here expecting service or ambiance. It’s a minor step above a take out place; it’s really just go there, eat, and get out.
