I know this is somewhat pedestrian but I crave a great bowl of Won-Ton like the kind I used to get at Wo Hops on Mott in NYC's Chinatown. Anyway... I'll travel from Montery Park to the Westside if you could just be so kind as to point me in the right direction.
I don't know the new york place. My fave wonton soup is at Full House on Hill Street in CHinatown, the wor won ton soup. It does have squid in it. Hope that's not a dealbreaker.
Not familiar with Wo Hops, but I suspect its Americanized Chinese food you are after. In Monterey Park there is a place I like for Wor Wonton in that style at the somewhat retro Paul's Kitchen oon Atlantic Blvd. The soup includes chunks of bbq pork, shrimp, and healthy sized wonton dumplings.

I posed a similar question some time ago, and have linked to the resulting thread below. For whatever it's worth, I tried most of the suggestions proffered, and my favorite for Americanized won-ton soup was Manhattan Won Ton Company on Doheny in Beverly Hills, which, if I'm not mistaken, you recommended.
Wang's Palace on Lemon and Myrtle in old town Monrovia. Won ton with chicken, shrimp, wontons, mushrooms and greens. That and their pot stickers and shrimp lo mein and shrimp egg foo young are great Chinese comforft food us gringos. (Get the idea I like shrimp?)
