Wor (or War) Wonton Soup ... what does the "Wor" mean to you?

ipsedixit | Jan 6, 201109:07 AM

When someone says they want to get a big bowl of Wor (or War) Wonton Soup, what does the Wor refer to?

Is it a reference to the ingredients -- i.e., that the soup has a bunch of ingredients (or "all ingredients") like chicken, veggies, mushrooms, etc. in addition to wontons?

Or is it a reference to the dishes' origination -- i.e., that it was introduced to Hong Kong after WWII?

In other words, what's the difference between Wor Wonton Soup and Wonton Soup?
