      Went today. It was good.Reminds me of my favorite place in Seattle. Is it really the best? The duck looked good too.

        too my knowledge its the best (although most renditions ive had in manhattan ctown have been pretty poor)...ive been searching around ctown for better and ive yet to find one although that doesnt mean there isnt one (lately ive tried east corner wonton, jm family, big wong, new wing huang)

        as artfuldestruct points out, super taste has great handpulled noodles (i eat there once a week literally), but im talking straight up wonton noodle soup which i usually start getting obsessed with everytime i go visit hk (they have unbelievably good wonton noodle soup...go figure)

          Although I love Great NY Noodletown, I haven't been all that impressed by their wonton noodle soup. It's nice to have whole prawns in the wontons but I just wish they'd take the time to de-vein them first as sometimes they are a bit gritty and this spoils the whole thing for me.

      are you specifically looking for the best wonton soup or just soup in general? dumpling soup? definitely try out new green bo and super taste. super taste has the edge on new green bo in terms of great hand-pulled noodles and dumpling soup, but new green bo has decent wonton soup and amazing soup dumplings. hope that helps!

        I was looking for wonton noodle soup. From chow, I know where to go for soup dumplings. Thanks for your help!

          I like New Chao Chao at 111 Mott Street (about 10-12 blocks SW from Ludlow and Delancey.) Excellent Chao Chao Wonton Noodle Soup. They recently raised their price of it from $3.50 to $4.00.

              Great broth at New Chow Chow - and you get 10 wonton with the noodles. Still a steal at $4.00. The only better broth I've recently had has been at Fu Zhou Restaurant (84 Forsyth Street) which Brian wrote about, they don't have wonton though. Let us know when you get back to NCC!
