ISO Wor Wonton Soup

For some reason, I crave this whenever I have a cold. Any leads as to who has a good version? Looking for a nice clean broth with a good mix of vegetables, shrimp, wontons, and roast pork slices. The Back Bay or South End would be a plus, but willing to travel if necessary.

  1. I'm a fan of Mary Chung's; it's my go-to when I have a cold. It's very basic -- broth and wontons. You can get it with either pork or shrimp wontons. Feel better soon.

      1. re: chowda

        It means "in search of" Wor Wonton soup--which is a kind of wonton soup that has lots of goodies floating in it in addition to wontons--like shrimp, pork slices, chicken slices, bamboo shoot cubes, boy choy, etc. etc. Seems like an American Chinese thing--I haven't seen it anyplace in the city, but look forward to hearing from anyone who has.

      2. I love Qingdao's wonton soup. It has just a little bit of vegetables, which makes it feel light and healthy, but there are also tons of wontons in it and they are delicious. Thanks for reminding me of this!
