with the demise of jun jun(chicken and noodles) last yr. Where is there to go for passable wonton noodles? Open to suggestions for both restaurants and food court stalls.

    For good broth, al dente noodles and decent won ton, you have to drive further to ' Won-ton Hut' at Warden and Hwy#7 ( next to McD ). Nothing really decent in Scarborough, IMO.

      If you want a quick fix and don't mind jumbo size wonton, Wonton Chai Noodle at Sheppard and Brimley is A-OK.
      Don't remember what the broth taste like though.

      Another option may be Yogi Noodle in the food court of the Chartwell shopping center. Tried their Wonton today, the wrapper was a bit thick but still passable and pipping hot.

        Wonton Chai's broth paled when compare to Wonton Hut. The latter uses the traditional shrimp shell, shrimp eggs and dried flounder in their broth. Hence very flavourful. They are also the only outfit that uses yellowing chives ( like some of the better Hong Kong wonton houses ) in their final product

        However, except for Mak An Kee in Richmond, BC, no one else uses 'lard', which in my opinion, is a key ingredient in making the noodle uber tasty and 'aromatic'!

          In Scarb, I would go to Yogi Noodle as well.

            Caitlink, did you try Yogi Noodle's Shrimp with bamboo, mushroom, and pork dumplings?

              I usually just get the traditional shrimp wonton noodle. The noodle is pretty al dente. And the soup is good as well.
              I used to like V2 (?) at FMP but it closed down.
              I have tried Wonton Hut but found the noodle to have too strong a taste the last time I went.
              I agree the best I had in Canada was in Vancouver. I go each time I visit.
