(Chinese recipes, prepare authentic Chinese food now!)

Last week, when I was atAppetite for China, Diana’s post about her trip to Hong Kong and her bowl of divine wontop soup had me gawked at my computer and then drooled all over my keyboard. A bowl of sinfully plump shimp wontons swimming in supreme stock, whispering “eat me eat me” in my ears.

I love wonton soup, but there is a problem. For years, I’ve been searching high and low for a good bowl of wonton soup, but haven’t yet found a satisfactory one in Southern California.

I love regular wontons with ground pork and a wee bit of shrimp served at Cantonese noodle joints, but the pure prawny kinds are impossible to find. (The closest thing is the leeks and shrimp jiaozi/dumpling at Dumpling 10053 at El Monte.) To satiate my craving–not to mention virtual hunger–I knew I had to make my own.

Wonton SoupSo, here is my delicious Cantonese wonton soup. It will never compare to the real wonton soup found in Hong Kong, but at least I got my fix for now. If you live in CA and know where to find a good bowl of wonton soup, please drop me a comment!

Please also note that I used yellow chives in my wonton soup recipe, which is typical Cantonese/Hong Kong style. My recipe also includes a Chinese prime stock (上汤) recipe, which is the core of all Chinese soup dishes.

    This looks great – will have to try with my 7yr old – she likes to cook. Wondering – I grew up in LA and grew up on authentic chinese food (dad took us to one place in chinatown and they like to see what us kids would eat) and love War Wonton soup. Other than NY city – I have not been able to find it in a restraunt and any good recipes – any ideas?? Living in the Midwest – until recently you can only get the americanized chinese food.

    I live in California in the bay area. I’ve had several won ton soups at different places, but nothing compares to this restaurant in the east bay who definitely makes the best. I literally drive miles to get theory soup.

    Best wonton soup in Southern California is at a restaurant called Arizona Chinese located in Chula Vista. I have been going to eat there since I was a little girl. They serve Cantonese Chinese food which is hard to find in some areas. The war won ton soup is the best I have had. You won’t be disappointed

    I am afraid that you can’t make proper hong kong style wonton soup without using dried flounder in the broth.
