My Hubby’s Turn to Reminisce at Just Wonton

It was my first time eating at Just Wonton. My husband said he wanted to bring me since I mentioned that I’ve never been. But I think what he really wanted to do was reminisce about his high school days. He said he used to come here when he was young and had no money.  It is definitely a hole in the wall, nothing fancy. Of course we had to order the Noodle Soup with Wonton, we actually ordered it with Beef Brisket too.  Growing up, I really enjoyed Wonton Noodle Soup, it was one of my favorites. But as I got older, I realized that restaurants no longer made it with the noodles perfectly crunchy so I rarely order it now. Sadly, the only time I get really good Wonton Noodle Soup is in Hong Kong.  So as I tasted this at Just Wonton, I was skeptical. The first few bites were good, but I had to eat it fast so that the noodles wouldn’t get soggy. I thought the wontons were only okay, I thought the beef brisket was not bad. But, what I really liked was adding the hot sauce they made to complement the dishes, it was made with preserved turnips and black beans.   I also read that they had the best Soft Scrambled Egg and Shrimp Over Ho Fun (thick rice noodles), and yes, I was definitely not disappointed with this dish! It was really good, the eggs and rice noodles tasted silky smooth.  If I ever feel like having this dish, I will definitely come here!
