Big Wing Wong

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.

    Hot damn! I love wontons, especially in soup, so this looks fantastic.

    Also, I don’t think I’ve ever had Red Devil, but like you, I also like my vinegar. :)

      It has the lightest of heat to it – it’s the first hot sauce I ever enjoyed, to put that in perspective. I have actually used it in place of red vinegar on chow mein occasionally, and it suits the purpose nicely. You should try it – you can get small bottles in Chinatown for a few dollars. But don’t expect it to be hot.

    Their wontons are their signature. I have not eaten theirs in a while. I usually get congee instead and it is only okay here. Still need to get their lobster pan fried noodles/ chow mein sometime.

    Damn those lousy tourists for packing up the place next door for soup dumplings!!

    I’m not sure if Big Wing Wong and Big Wong King is related because their menus look exactly the same. One of my favorite things to get from either place is: char siu/roast pork with wontons over ho fun/flat rice noodles in soup. Mmm, so good.
