Quick Ming Tai Report - Outer Sunset, SF

Dave MP | Apr 21, 2007 05:18 PM

I drove out to Ming Tai today in the Outer Sunset to try the shrimp wonton noodle soup. Thanks Lori SF and shortexact for the recommendation. Shortexact describes this soup perfectly: the broth and noodles were nothing special, but the four large shrimp wontons are excellent. I probably would only return to this place if I was specifically in the mood for shrimp wontons.

The soup took a very long time to come out - about 25 minutes. They were busy I guess, but this seemed like a long time.

We had some rice noodle rolls too, which were fine but nothing special. Are there other restaurants that make these at all times of day? I'd be looking especially for places that make them later in the day (or at night) - the ones at Ming Tai were served w/ peanut sauce and hoisin sauce.

Here's a post where I found out about Ming Tai:

One other note: there were signs up in Ming Tai announcing that they have extended their hours on Fri, Sat and Sun - they are open till 9 those days. On other days they close early.

Finally, here's a post about the dumpling place on Noriega and 21st where I went afterwards to pick up some frozen (and fresh) dumplings:
