I'm on a search for the best "red oil sauteed hands" (hong yau chow sau - for those who understand Cantonese). Essentially, boiled wontons that are tossed in a chili and peanut sauce. I'm trying to find a place that does them the way I remembered having them as a kid.
The wontons should be filled with pork, no shrimps or other embellishments, and they should be bite sized
The peanuts should be coarsely chopped and sauteed in chili oil
The chili should be a fiery, smoky chili oil
Optional condiments: chopped fresh garlic (my fave) and/or chopped fresh cilantro and/or chopped fresh scallions
Not allowed: wontons the size of pot stickers, the use of peanut butter, the use of soy sauce, the use of chili paste instead of oil
So far I've tried Hai Shanghai, Asian Legend, a place on McNicoll and Vic Park (or maybe it was Kennedy, I don't quite remember), looked for them at Ding Tai Fung and they don't have them. Can chowhounders turn me onto any other possible leads??
