  1. Our old local neighbourhood Chinese Restaurant in Acadia (on Acadia Drive) Had AMAZING hot and sour soup , especially when served over sizzling rice! In fact I won;t even eat it any where else, it just doesn't compare!
    Golden Gate Restaurant 403-259-2777
    14-430 Acadia Drive Se, Calgary, AB, T2J0B2

    personally i don't really like Chinese that much.. it's so greasy.. but I really enjoy the food here!

    As for Wonton Soup Kings off Barlow Trail is really popular!

          Dragon Pearl in Inglewood is my go-to place for Hot & Sour soup. They also do an excellent sizzling rice and pan fried wontons.

          The last time i had wonton from Kings on Meridian (Jan 2011) turned me off Chinese FOREVER. It is very popular but never the less a greasy spoon.

        3. my go to place for wonton soup is Gee Gong (206 Centre St SE, across from U&Me), great place for chinese bbq as well (roast pork, bbq pork, roast duck etc). caveat - haven't been there in a while though so would appreciate it if anyone can give some current feedback.

          1. I am hooked on the hot & sour soup at Oriental Palace in Parkdale
            9 Parkdale Crescent N.W.

            1. We like the hot and sour at Snow Palace in Crowfoot. If you like seafood in your hot and sour soup, the soup at T-Pot by the north T&T is pretty good too.

              1. When I lived in Calgary Spicy Hut on Edmonton Trail South was my go-to place for good hot and sour soup. Peking Garden up in Varsity also did a decent job.

                1. I can't comment on the Hot and Sour soup in Calgary, but here in Winnipeg, it all seems to taste the same.....overly thickened, and mostly broth.

                  I've been making my own for years, and it's incredibly easy to make EXCELLENT Hot and Sour soup....you should try it.....recipes are widely available online which will give you the basic ingredients, then tweak them to your own tastes from there. And...you can make a pot-full for the same price as a bowl in most places. I'm no chef, but I can say with confidence my H&S soup is better than any restaurant version I've tried.

                  Pan fried dumplings are just as easy (ground pork, garlic, green onions, S&P, soy and sesame oil wrapped with a wonton wrapper). I'm thinking dinner tonite might just be H&S soup and dumplings.......mmmmmm.
