Won Tons -- now always with shrimp?

Sarah | Nov 3, 2009 07:30 PM

Had lunch at an old reliable in Oakland C-town and ordered won ton soup w/beef stew (first time). When I bit into the won ton, it had two 1-inch shrimp in the filling! I'm sure that's a bonus for most, but for the shrimp-allergic, not so much. I thought won ton filling was pork only and maybe with a smidge of shrimp in upgraded versions. I know Daimo's all shrimp, which is why I avoid it there. Is shrimp-heavy the new standard?
