barbeque pork, wonton soup, oakland or berkeley ??

I'm looking for a delicious bar-b-que pork won-ton soup in the area. I know its hot! But I have a hankering for soup?! Hong Kong Villa on University in Berkeley used to have a good one. Any suggestions?

  1. I have a coworker who swears by Gum Kuo, in Oakland, in the complex between 9th, 11th, Webster, and Franklin. It's okay, but a bit greasy to my taste. Ying Kee (across the street, on 9th) has some good noodle soups, although I have no idea if they have barbecue pork or not (and Gum Kuo definitely does).

    1. some of the best won ton noodle soup is at Daimo in El Cerrito/Richmond at the Pacific East Mall (off of Central Ave.), It might be a little farther than you're willing to go, but worth the extra drive.

        Or, if San Leandro is closer than Richmond, I'll vouch for the wonton noodle soup at the Daimo branch there.

          Thanks, we'll give that a try. I've shopped in the grocery store there but never eaten at any of the restuarants.

        2. I love the wonton noodle soup at New Gold Medal in Oakland Chinatown (8th St betw Franklin & Webster). I think their char siu is good too, though I usually order roast duck instead.
