won tons and roast duck at Wing Hing, San Francisco

I had posted asking about won tons to stave off both a craving and a cold...the Glen Park alternative is close by and sounded like a good possibility, but before I could check it out, I got a tip off-line to try Wing Hing on San Bruno Avenue in San Francisco. When I heard Wing Hing also had Hong Kong Style BBQ, that was the deciding factor and I decided to head over there.

Bottom line: craving well satisfied. The won ton broth was simple but tasty, and the won tons themselves were some of the better ones I've had in a while. In addition to ground pork, cilantro and ginger there was a small whole and fresh shrimp tucked into the edge of each one.

Also got a 1/2 a roast duck, which was good to very good, fairly crispy skin and very good flavor, and pot stickers, very juicy and flavorful. (hubby helped me eat all of this food, but isn't the rule to feed a cold...? :-)) Couldn't resist also getting an order of the roast duck noodle soup, but that was the only disappointment. The duck broth itself was actually delicious, and the same roast duck in the soup was fine, but the noodles spoiled it for me: they tasted like dried ramen straight off of a shelf at Safeway. yuch... Next time I will try it with rice noodles, hopefully a better bet.

Total cost for all of the above, take out: $21

Decor is non-existent, service efficient given the crowd, and English is spoken, though I was the only person in the place initiating a conversation in that language. The ducks, pigs and other bbq items hang by the door. I'll try the pig next time. There was some chinese writing on the wall, don't know if they are other items or repeats of items on the English menu...but at noon most folks seemed to be eating rice plates with the various bbq items, or soup.

The proximity of this place to Bayshore and the 101 makes it a great option for take-out after a long day at work for those of us in Bernal or South Mission.

The broth did help clear me up, but if the cold isn't all better by tomorrow I guess I will have to check out deelish's suggestion in Glen Park, just to compare!
