Ok, I know that War Won Ton soup might not be everyone's most exotic chinese dish, but I have a weakness for it...when it's done right.
I work in Pasadena and live in Santa Monica. My question is - are there any places (outside of monterey park) that are between Pas and SM where I might stop in to pick up a large portion of good, fresh, well-made War Won Ton soup (or other notable chinese take-out dishes) for dinner? Chinatown recommendations would actually be OK if there are any, as it's just a hop off the freeway. (I already have a quick-stop at Phillippe's down to a small science.) Also appreciated would be possible all-day dim sum spots for take out that fit the same objective.
