There is a very famous place in NY china town, called Chinatown Noodle House, that is considered the best in NY for wonton soup.
At the recommendation of this board, I went down to vicente and 24th, to try Just Wonton. Thank You! Beats the hell out of anything in NY; subtle and gingery with a miraculously balanced almost creamy tasting broth. And filled with delicious wontons tasting almost like excellent shui mai.
With no decent matza ball soup in San Fran's sight (boo, hiss) I have found my new jewish pennisillun.
By the way: anyone ever try the wonton soup at Old Shanghai on Geary? Im trying to recreate my JustWonton expericance closer to home.
