Won-Ton Hut: Good food spoiled by stubborn owner!

Charles Yu | Feb 18, 2012 05:44 PM

Hong Kong style won-ton noodle soup is one of my favourite comfort food. With Big Joy and V2 both gone out of business, places offering 'relatively authentic' won-ton noodles is becoming far and few in the GTA. One such survivor is Won-Ton Hut in Markham ( Hwy7 and Warden ).

In the mood for some shrimp won-ton and Braised beef and tendon ( Lo Mien ) noodles, I head over there after work. The 'Lo Mien' menu offers patrons the choice of one single topping or a combo of 2 or 3 'pick and choose' toppings, including won-ton, beef brisket, fish or beef balls, octopus balls, hand cut sliced fatty beef, penny hot sauce...etc.

Wanting more beef brisket and tendons to go with my noodles, I asked for a combo of 2 toppings: brisket + brisket. A plate of noodles with extra brisket toppings! No big deal! Right?! Wrong!!! When the server came back to tell me the owner refused this combination and declined my order!! I was shocked! The reason given being that my request is not the norm and unlike won-ton or fish balls whose quantity can be counted, brisket quantity is hard to judge?!!! Are you kidding me!!! A restaurant refusing to allow me to 'double-size' my meal!!! Anyways, I settled for a single topping option and called it a day.

I'm still surprise to find, in this day and age, owner/management can be so stubborn and non-accommodating!!
