New wonton/dumpling favorite

On my continual quest for tasty wontons, pho, and ramen, I stopped by Ming Tai Wuntun at 2455 Noriega for Sunday brunch. It was one of the rec.s I had culled from this board and was the best bowl that I've had in SF as of yet.
I had the shrimp dumpling noodle soup (about $5, and more than enough for a meal for me). The dumplings were giant! They overfilled my ladle spoon and were the size of a 10 year olds fist. I appreciated that they use whole shrimp in the filling here. Broth was good and not too heavy on msg, and the yellow noodles were as they should be. Green onions and a few pieces of veggies were also in the bowl.
I also tried the beef brisket wonton noodle soup. Big wontons with whole shrimp filling in a rich, dark, beefy broth. Lots of brisket chunks, some of which were too fatty/gelatinous for my less adventurous dining companion. I thought it was great though. Didn't see anyone order any of the macaroni or sandwich options on the menu. Short line on the sidewalk, small place, functional service.
