Best Won Ton Soup (no pork)

  • 5

I just love the taste of Won Ton Soup, but have stopped eating pork. Are there any restaurants where I can get a Won Ton Soup that tastes truly authentic but has shrimp (or crab) won tons instead?

  1. I have not been there in a couple of years but there used to be a restaurant at the corner of Henry and Catherine Street in Chinatown that had great soup with shrimp won tons. I can't remember the name but my supervisor who is chinese sent me there. It is very basic looking and had a lot of chinese clientele. They also seemed to sell a lot of congee.

      I don't remember the name of the place but the wontons served there have shrimp and pork. It's not great either.

    2. Fusia on East 56th Street between Lexington and Third Avenue has a delicious shrimp wonton soup - small or large bowl - and the shrimps are a good size.

      1. Shrimp Wontons unfortunately have pork in them too just to let you guys know.

        1. NY Noodletown (corner of Bowery and Bayard) has delicious shrimp wonton soup. they have other non-pork soups as well that use the same broth.
